Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of spirit.”   —   Khalil Gibran, or جبران خليل جبران

(So many wonderful, meaningful quotations, squeezed into an all too short life!  And, so many great quotes on love and friendship!  Sometimes, I think it’s true that only the good die young.  However, if he were living in America today, he’d likely be detained at the airport, nearly every single time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  The unfortunate reality of far too many ERs these days.

USPOY  =  SOUPY,  GITFH  =  FIGHT,  TACIVY  =  CAVITY,  TCLIHG  =  GLITCH   —   Giving us:  SOPIHTATYLI

Clue/Question:  After getting to the emergency room, he was hoping (in vain) for some . . .

Answer:  HOSPITALITY

(Boy, can I ever sympathize with this guy!  It looks like he’s having to deal with outright rudeness, while I only had to deal with horrendous inefficiency and indifference.  You really don’t get a good sense of time here, but I would have gladly traded the rudeness he’s getting for the nearly 5 hours that Good Samaritan Hospital – in Suffern, NY – made me wait, in their waiting room, a year ago January.  As the Cryptoquote demonstrates, every quotation seems to have an equal and opposite quote.  “Good things come to those who wait” did not work out so well for me, or the woman with the huge gash in her hand.  I don’t think being the squeaky wheel would have made much of a difference, though.  I never even saw a doctor.  Only a gruff X-ray tech and a fairly green P.A.  The next time me, or my family, is in need of emergency care I’m going out of my way to the hospital across the county.  Well, at least if it’s non-life threatening.

Great clue words today, and all of them were well-jumbled.  None are new, but I really liked seeing “cavity” and “glitch”.  It’s hard to put my finger on it, but I wasn’t thrilled, today, with the answer letter layout.  Maybe switching “soupy” and “fight” would have made it a little tougher.  IHTSOPATYLI?  Eh!  Menza Menza.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
