(I guess the discount sweetened the deal.  Decent pun.  There were no new clue words today, but a lot of the jumbling was.  For some strange reason, when I went to write down “spoil” I re-wrote SLOPI.  Just a little spacey, I guess.  The answer letter layout was wonderful.  I really had to look at it to get the answer.  Interesting cartoon.  The female character is a little odd.  I wonder if Jeff was going for something a little more specific.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit for doing it.”   —   Andrew Carnegie

(We must learn to delegate, both responsibility and credit.  Of all the quotes I’ve posted, since I started posting the Cryptoquote Spoilers, Carnegie is the only Andrew ever quoted.  There are other notable Andrews out there.  Two U.S. presidents, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Andrew Young, Andrew Dice Clay, and Andrew Wyeth, to name a few.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
