Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/12/16

Non Sequitur

You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.”   —   Robert Heinlein

(People like Donald Trump – and tea partiers and neocons  – use this knowledge to their advantage, while some of us keep tilting at windmills, hoping that some will the see the light we’re trying to shine.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 08/12/16

Visual Description:  Looking lousy on the links.

VORBA  =  BRAVO, MILTI  =  LIMIT,  DYIMAD  =  MIDDAY,  SENSUL  =  UNLESS   —   Giving us:  AVLIIDDLES

Clue/Question:  Following his friend’s advice instead of seeing his doctor was – – –

English: The driving range High fencing to protect pedestrians. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Answer:  ILLADVISED

(Not a bad pun.  Reminds me a little of that one shingles medication commercial, where the guy – with shingles – is out at the driving range!  When you have the shingles as bad as that guy does, you have no business playing golf.  I had a guy who worked for me who had a bad case of shingles and he was out of work for a few weeks.  I’ve had one flare up of shingles, and so has my wife, but we were fortunate that they were constrained to a fairly small area, and were nowhere’s near as bad as the poor people you see in the commercials.

All of the clue words are old favorites.  A couple of the jumbles were new, but we’ve seen both “milti” and “sensul” in the past.  The answer letter layout was a beautiful jumble.  It’s a little unusual to have a form of the answer word in the clue/question, but not unheard of.  That’s a heck of a hat the one duffer is wearing!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
