The broadest philosophy is narrower than the worst poetry.”   —   Henry David Thoreau

(Not the biggest poetry fan, so I don’t really get this.  And, I don’t really care.  All I know for sure is as tough as yesterday’s Cryptoquote was . . . today’s was ridiculously easy.  The words “THE” and “THAN” almost jumped off the page, and the author was also a huge give away.  Whenever I see a three word/name author, with words of that length, I immediately think of two authors.  Today’s author and Ralph Waldo Emerson.  I really wish for some of these more recognizable, quotable authors they would vary the name, a la Ralph W. Emerson or R.W. Emerson.  I probably just need to avert my eyes away from the author more, like I do with the cartoon in the Jumble.  On a fun note, queries for yesterday’s Cryptoquote outnumbered the queries for the Jumble.  I think that’s a first.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
