If loving someone is putting them in a straitjacket and kicking them down a flight of stairs, then yes, I have loved a few people.”   —   Jarod Kintz

(An amusing quote, from a rising young writer.  Apparently, this is not the first Jarod Kintz quote that’s been used in the Cryptoquote, but I don’t remember the other one.  The dude has a presence on WordPress!  I’m attaching his About link below.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Fresh pun!  I’d say Jeff has good reason to fret!  Although, if you read the related article below, I guess you can play with one string.  Surprisingly – for me – there were no new clue words today.  I though that maybe “birch” and/or “suffix” might be new.  But no, they’re both up there.  And with “birch” we’ve even see the same jumble!  The other three jumbles are seemingly new.  The answer letter layout was great again today.  A fine jumble that didn’t give anything away, in my opinion.  A fun cartoon too.  I didn’t know that Jeff had his own roadie!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
