Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/03/11

Three things it’s best to avoid:  a strange dog, a flood and a man who thinks he is wise.”   —   Welsh Proverb

Visual Description:  Astronauts, somewhere between the Earth and the Sun.

YTPME  =  EMPTY,  VRRIE  =  RIVER,  EMATRP  =  TAMPER,  DLECAP  =  PLACED   —   Giving us:  TVRTELE

Clue/Question:  Regardless of where they traveled, this was always the center of gravity.

Answer:  THE LETTER V

(Not bad!  A little tricky, but not too.  We’ve seen ones like this before.  I didn’t have any trouble with any of the clue words, and three of the four were well jumbled.  Only “empty” was a dead giveaway, to those of us who can read backwards.   Nice job on the answer letter layout.  I like the classic brush/crew cut on the one astronaut.  Very Gus Grissom/Deke Slayton!  It’s hard to believe, but there are only two, of the original Mercury Seven, astronauts still with us today.  During the ’60s, these guys were like super hero rock stars.  They constantly risked their lives, and what they were part of is largely responsible for today’s modern technological wonders, that so many of us of take for granted.  We owe them a debt of gratitude.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR
