Answer:  BREAD WINNERS

(I should’ve seen it immediately, but I kneaded a little time, to rise to the occasion.  A nifty pun though.  All old favorite clue words today.  And, only two of the jumbles seem to be new, as I already had “rwonb” and “ceddea” in my Tags.  The answer letter layout was cryptic enough.  The more obvious clue was all the loaves of bread displayed on the counter.  The less obvious – bonus clue – were the two awards, hanging on the wall.  “Best Rye” two years running!  Everyone run out to a bakery and buy some fresh baked bread!  Lots of fun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Power consists in one’s capacity to link his will with the purpose of others, to lead by reason and a gift of cooperation.”   —   Woodrow Wilson

(I don’t remember enough of my U.S. history to conclude if he was a great president, or not.  I like that he was an academic, and that he pushed through banking reforms, and was an advocate for labor.  And of course, he presided over our entry, and victory, in World War I.  The U.S. emerged as a clear world power as a result.   My main problem is with the Treaty of Versailles.  Had it been far less punitive, we may have never seen the rise Adolph Hitler and the Nazi party.  Imagine how vastly different the world may have been if we never had a World War II.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Our friend, Lee, pointed out that yesterday’s quote was first used, in a poem, by Douglas Malloch.  Thomas S. Monson could have only borrowed it.  In looking up the quote though, I also found that it has also been attributed to J. Willard Marriott!  Based on the lifetimes of the three men, I tend to side with Lee.  Conceivably though, it could even be some paraphrase of an ancient Greek saying.  Interesting though.   —   YUR
