Answer:  LOST TRACK OF THEM

(It’s quickly becoming a lost art.  I remember a good number of guys who had great model train setups, when I was a kid.  Now, they’re getting harder and harder to find, especially those great O Guage trains from Lionel.  No new clue words today, but most of the jumbles are new.  We’ve seen “trufoh” before.  I had a little trouble getting “herbal”.  The answer letter layout was masterful.  A beautiful jumble.  Fun cartoon too.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/18/15

A gentleman is one who never strikes a woman without provocation.”   —   H. L. Mencken

(Is there any truth to this statement in this politically correct age?  We’ve all been conditioned to a kind of zero tolerance for an entire laundry list of things over the years.  Not that I advocate violence against women.  Essentially, I’m against all forms of violence, but occasionally it is going to happen, and it’s not always necessarily wrong.  Very often today the women are the aggressors.  And, in this age where we’re striving to to give women the equality that they definitely deserve, does their aggression constitute the provocation in Mencken’s quote?  Hmm.  Considering he died before I was even born, I doubt this was said tongue-in-cheek.  What do you think, guys and gals???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
