Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/10/18

Impartiality is a pompous name for indifference, which is an elegant name for ignorance.”   —   G.K. Chesterton

(You win some, and you lose some, G.K..  I’m sure I’ve agreed with a few of your quotes, but definitely not this one.  Other than them all starting with the letter I, there is very little in common with the three words.  Fairness does not equal lack of concern, or sympathy.  Nor do either of them equal lack of knowledge.  Perhaps this quote has been taken out of context, and is part of a larger quote, but as a stand alone statement it is just plain stupid, in my opinion.  It did make for a fairly challenging Cryptoquote though!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SO FAR, SO GOOD

(This could be David and Claire, or it could be another couple that Jeff knows.  With Skype and FaceTime, and such, lots of couples make it work this way.

No new clue words yet for 2018, but we do appear to have three new jumbles.  And, isn’t that the name of the game, anyway?  We’ve definitely seen “doybon” before.  “Spogis” gave me a little pause.  The answer letter layout had me going for a few seconds.  I really didn’t know what to make of the clue/question, as I was reading it.  But, it didn’t take long for the answer to dawn on me.  The cartoon showed a nice little friendly get together.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
