Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/30/10

If your ideas are any good, you’ll have to ram them down people’s throats.”   — Howard Aiken

(Kinda like with health care reform, or Wall St./banking reform, etc., etc.  But, the idea of going to war because some grainy, Cuban Missile Crisis quality recon photos show something that might possibly – if you have a very vivid imagination – be a WMD facility . . . well then, beyond all means lets swallow that!) —   YUR

(Tricky) Jumble Spoiler – 04/30/10

Visual Description:  Someone like yer uncle, at a Beat poetry reading.

LOVEH  =  HOVEL,  SIVOR  =  VISOR,  LUBOSE  =  BLOUSE,  TENCED  =  DECENT   —   Giving us:  VLSROUEDEC

Clue/Question:  What the couple said when the poetry reading left them puzzled.

Answer:  COULD BE “VERSE

(Initially, I was playing with RULES BE COVED, but that didn’t make any sense.  Then I came up with DOVES BE CRUEL . . . and I thought: Why not?  It has a poetic, Beat-response-to-Elvis kinda sound to it.  But then the word COULD came into focus, and the pun became clear.  Reminds me of this little old Jewish doctor I had as a kid.  But, I digress.)
