Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/07/11

Stephen Holland's "Yogi"

Democracy is a process by which people are free to choose the man who will get the blame.”   —   (Dr.) Lawrence Peter

(I emphasized the doctor title so no one would – as if they ever could – mistake this for a Yogi Berra malapropismYogi‘s given name is Lawrence Peter Berra!  I learn something new every day!  Be well, friends!)   —   YUR

PS.  Kind of in the phantasy super fight mold, I would have loved to see Pete Rose try to take out Yogi at the plate.  That would’ve been epic!  And, I think Yogi would’ve kicked Pete’s ass!      YUR

Clue/Question:  Viewing the solar explosions through the telescope became difficult when . . .

Answer:  TEMPERS FLARED

(I liked it!  A nice variety of interesting, well-scrambled clue words.  13 answer letters, laid out so there’s no giveaways.  And, a cute cartoon.  A little unnecessarily wordy perhaps, but still good.  Maybe the words “plasma” and “gamma rays” and “radiating . . . negative energy” were meant to throw us off a little.  You know.  Look for something more scientific.  But, maybe not.  Solar explosions are more commonly known as solar flares, so the phrasing of the clue/question, I guess, would’ve been a big clue for most.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends.  Be well and do good.)   —   YUR

PS.  Lot’s of good solar flare articles follow.      YUR
