Jumble Spoiler – 11/29/14

Visual Description:  A giant head . . . driving to Soldier Field.

GAMOE  =  OMEGA,  PENIT  =  INEPT,  RULHOY  =  HOURLY,  PUMACS  =  CAMPUS   —   Giving us:  GINHRUS

Clue/Question:  The football player got a speeding ticket because he was – – –

Answer:  RUSHING

(Everybody loves a good sack!  As long as your guys are the sack-ers, and not the sack-ees!  All of today’s clue words were old favorites.  ralis95 can stand down.  But, all of the jumbles, with the exception of “inept”, were new today.  I struggled a bit – once again – in getting “omega”.  It’s a very old word that doesn’t come up that much, unless you’re talking about fish oil, or fraternities.  No complaints with the answer letter layout today.  Seven letters is kind of limiting.  The cartoon is a riot!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/29/14

Our ultimate freedom is the right and power to decide how anybody or anything outside ourselves will affect us.”   —   Stephen Covey

(I think it’s very ironic how “religious” people love to espouse the concept of “free will”.  Very little of what we do in our lives is really a matter of free will.  We are all cultivated from birth – some of us even earlier – to think, and behave, in certain acceptable ways.  There are both pros and cons to this kind of cultivation.  Ostensibly, the pros outweigh the cons, but that is really here nor there.  Most of us will carry on, and pass on, the various values we have been taught, as a matter of heritage and tradition.  It’s reassuring and comforting to us.  It’s one less thing to worry about in a world full of trepidation and uncertainty.  But, the world is also full of encouragement and beauty.  The more we can concentrate on these positives the more we can break free of the constraints of our conditioning.  Therein lies the path to true free will.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
