Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/14/15

The best helping hand that you will ever receive is the one at the end of your own arm.”   —   Fred Dehner

(This guy either died in 1978 – at age 70 – or he’s currently alive, but doesn’t have any bio info out there for us.  Either way, this is the one and only quote attributed to him.  Here’s a question for the Grammar Police:  Are double possessives as objectionable as double negatives???  What arm might your hand be connected, if not your own?  It’s like:  at the present time.  Or:  cash money.  The unnecessary redundancy is irksome.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(A certain someone is not going to be so happy with another hyphenated answer!  Oh, well.  Such is life!  The word “tenet” is coming up as a new clue word, as it is not on my 02/04/15 copy of the ralis95 clue word database.  I’m pretty sure we’ve seen it before, so it’s either newer than 02/04, or it came to us on a Sunday . . . long ago . . . in a galaxy far far away!  The other three clue words are old favorites, but all of the jumbles came up as new, for me.  Today’s answer describes today’s answer letter layout, to a tee.  It gave nothing away.  And, the cartoon was nifty, swifty and adrifty!  Is that Lake Michigan, Jeff?  Despite the hyphenation, I thought today’s Jumble was a real high flyer!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
