Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/07/11

William Ellery Channing Statue

Undoubtedly a man is to labor to better his condition, but first to better himself.”   — William Ellery Channing

(This guy has some very useful quotations.  I think the one I like best goes:  “Every mind was made for growth, for knowledge, and its nature is sinned against when it is doomed to ignorance.”  You guys know how I feel about ignorance, intolerance and injustice.  They are inter-related, in a progressive (regressive?) sort of way.  Ignorance breeds intolerance, which leads to injustice.  To open our hearts we must first open our minds.  Be excellent to each other, friends.)   — YUR

Visual Description:  1960’s NASA version of “Over The Top”.

SGETU  =  GUEST,  OFROL  =  FLOOR,  LOSRLC  =  SCROLL,  ANMRNE  =  MANNER   —   Giving us:  GSTORRMAN

Clue/Question:  The astronaut never lost a match because he was . . .

Answer:  ARM STRONG

(Neil, that is!  Good scrambling on the fairly basic clue words.  There’s no give away on the answer letters.  Kind of expected quotation marks, though.  Anybody who remembers the heyday of the American astronaut probably had no trouble getting this.  Don’t know about the kiddies.  Hopefully, our schools are covering this in Later 20th Century History!  Still, I don’t think many were crumpling up the paper and throwing it on the floor!  I’d’ve thought that yesterday’s – Sunday’s – would have garnered a few more peeks than it did.  You just never know in this game.  Stay well, friends.)   — YUR
