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

    I flew through Jumble today! My mind is back on track with my new mantras. 1. Breath in! Breath out! Move on! (I saw this on the back of a guy’s t-shirt at a bar the other day! Heh, it works! 2. Might as well stop worrying about IT! IT might not happen anyway. (Read it on a forum on-line!) Loved the cartoon today. My recent hospital visits have been quite nice and professional lately. Why? The big hospital in Point Pleasant was torn down and rebuilt in a nearby town. However, just an ER was built in Point Pleasant Beach. You know…for all the tourists in summer. So from Oct. to April you get 3 docs and 3 nurses and 2 x-ray techs to yourself. YUR, it might be a long drive for you, though! Hopefully, both of us will stay out of them all together!

    LOL, Lesley! If I ever see an ER again it will be too soon! SO glad you’re in a better frame of mind, kid. They say the right attitude can go a long way.

    This was about my third puzzle today, and I breezed through it — don’t know if it was because I’d worked the others before this one or not. The answer didn’t come as quickly. I had a great ER visit in Chicago a couple of years ago–looks like I was very fortunate!
