(Very nice!  A 12 letter answer!  No new clue words today, but they were all jumbled well.  We’ve had “afraid” as FIDARA before, so hopefully no one struggled to get that one.  Great answer letter layout.  These guys need to learn to chill!  After all, this is . . . nothing to get hung about.  Be well, don’t fight, and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Semi-Tough) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/22/12

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Common sense in an uncommon degree is what the world calls wisdom.”   —   Samuel Taylor Coleridge

(Maybe it was just me, but it took me a while to get this one started.  I figured the second to last word was either: WALLS, FALLS OR CALLS.  I didn’t consider BALLS or HALLS, or any other ALLS word.  And, with the assumption that the U was the E, I figured the sixth word was DEGREE.  From there everything else fell into place. 

We seem to have too many people who might be extremely bright, though unnecessarily specialized.  And, too many people who rely on their hearts more than their heads.  If we could just learn to check our emotions, then we wouldn’t really need to be so-called geniuses to make wise decisions.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
