If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business.”   —   Abraham Lincoln

(This could just as easily have been said by President Obama.  I’m not saying that he has been a perfect president.  No president ever was.  Nor am I saying that I’ve agreed with everything he has done.  But, he has demonstrated otherworldly restraint, in not responding to the attacks that have been launched against him, from before the 2008 election, to today.  And, unfortunately, probably tomorrow and the day after that, and the day after that.  His detractors like to assert that their complaints are purely partisan ideology.  And, a bit of that may be true.  But there are bigger, older, and uglier . . . fearful sentiments at play here, that most refuse to acknowledge.  Largely, the same ones Lincoln faced.  And sadly, for the same old nonsensical reasons.  This country still has a long way to go.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Hello there…What is the actual problem you have with my writing of March 16, 2016? The article is about how Americans tend to judge president’s. The work is factual; most of it comes from the actual book that is plainly referenced. Btw, just wtf is “Cryptoquote”?

    Not sure why you think I have a problem with your March 16 piece. Most people are flattered when their posts are linked to another’s. WordPress provides a service called Zemanta, which “reads” your text as you write it, then provides an assortment of – what it considers “relevant” – pictures and “Related Articles”. The related articles come with a brief synopsis, and if I like it, or if I just think it’s relevant, then I include it.

    As far as wtf is a Cryptoquote? I’m pretty sure you have Googled it by now. But if you haven’t, it is a cryptogram – as referenced in my Tags – that runs in a number of newspapers. It’s a basic substitution cypher of known quotes. I solve them daily, along with the Jumble, then post what I call the spoilers. Devotees of these newspaper puzzles come here to get the answers, and/or to read my commentary.

    All are welcome, as are any comments or questions.
