Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/31/16

English: "Revenue reform" train stop...

English: “Revenue reform” train stopped by “vested interests,” “local issues,” “trusts,” and other poles. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A world of vested interests is not a world which welcomes the disruptive force of candor.”   —   Agnes Repplier

(This reminds me of a current commercial – I don’t remember what for –  where a guy in a business meeting wants to stand out as some kind of maverick, so when the boss asks if everyone agrees, he says No, that’s a dumb idea.  Next thing you see is him being escorted out of the building, with a box of his personal possessions.  It also kind of reminds me of when I was in banking, and they kept pushing for the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act.  I really had no say, but they eventually got their way, and eventually we all got Too Big to Fail.  Those huge bailouts added to an already out of control national debt.  A handful of fat-cats’ vested interests were served.  I guess that makes all of us their servants.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Hey, Zemanta is back!  Aaahhh . . . content!   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 03/31/16

Visual Description:  Tarantino’s dream.

REETX  =  EXERT,  ANKET  =  TAKEN,  PROYES  =  OSPREY,  WERTOL  =  TROWEL   —   Giving us:  EETAESRTEL

Clue/Question:  The collector of classic films owned – – –

Answer:  REEL ESTATE

(This is a good, stinky pun!  And, an overall great Jumble.  We have two new clue words today.  Yes, our dear friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database to include the words “osprey” and “trowel”.  The jumble “anket” seems to be new as well.  We’ve definitely seen “reetx” before.  The answer letter layout was another great jumble, that gave nothing away.  Seeing the old film canisters, and the reel to reel film projector, clued me into the first word being REEL.  The remaining letters quickly gave me ESTATE, and I got the pun.  The rich guy looks like a generic old rich guy, but the other guy looks like Quentin Tarantino, to me.  What do you guys think?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Still no Zemanta.  Looks like I need to alert them of the situation.   —   YUR
