Answer:  TREASURY

(An appropriate tax day Jumble!  A little too literal maybe.  Maybe that’s because the IRS doesn’t have a sense of humor???  Well, there were no new clue words today.  I think Hoyt pays a tax on new clue words.  However, three of the jumbles came up as new, with only “futsf” having been used earlier.  None of them tripped me up any.  The answer letter layout was a little weak today.  It starts out with SURY, which – obviously – is the second half of the answer word.  Switching the order of “FUTSF” and “RULTY” would have prevented this . . . heinous offense to our purist sensibilities!  LOL!  The cartoon is great though.  With the nerdy pirate accountant, with vest and gathered sleeves, half glasses, and a pencil behind his ear!  Did they have pencils back then???  There is also a quill pen on the bench/table.  Not quite sure, but I believe, instead of the classic sinking sailboat, we have a sinking pirate ship on the horizon.  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

April the 15th Cryptoquote Spoiler – 2017

We may eliminate death someday, but I doubt if we’ll ever eliminate taxes.”   —   Robert A. Heinlein

(Apologies to all of the non-American readers out there for today’s subject line.  April the 15th may not be as relevant to you, as it is here in the United States of Murica.  But ironically, due to some funky state holidays – that the fed feels they have to acknowledge – April the 15th isn’t completely relevant to us anymore!  I think we have until the 18th to file our tax returns this year.  No one is complaining mind you, but tax day is getting like the first day of a season, or something guided by the Jewish calendar.  You know that it’s roughly around a certain time, but you’re waiting for word to come down from the mountain.  Is this still Passover???  If so then Happy Passover to our Jewish readers.  And, Happy Holy Week to Catholics.  And, Happy Saturday, and the day before Easter to everybody else.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
