Answer:  TOOK THE STARES

(Of course she did.  So many people get into the performing arts to satisfy their need for attention.  They want to feel loved.  A lot of them are actually pretty insecure, so they have a strong desire for affirmation.  And, once they achieve a certain level of fame, many of them develop an attitude of entitlement.  This is where a lot of them then get in to trouble.  I’m sure you’ve been seeing a lot of these *trouble* stories on the news lately.

Stairs to Stares!  Good pun.  None of the clue words came up as new, and only two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve seen “suheo” and “teptie” before.  The answer letter layout was outstanding!  I found nothing obvious there, at all.  It took me a few looks before I came up with the answer/pun.  The cartoon does a great job of showing the gawkers and the staircase!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 02/02/18

Fire hath its force abated by water, not by wind; and anger must be allayed by cold words, and not by blustering threat.”   —   Anne Bradstreet

(Our first Anne Bradstreet quote, and it’s a beauty!  The best thing about the Cryptoquote is that it introduces me/us to all sorts of writers and actors, artists and scientists, and politicians and philosophers, and religious figures who have somehow escaped my/our attentions.  Great words from one of the earliest “English poets of North America and first writer in England’s North American colonies to be published.”  As per Wikipedia.  The members of ANTIFA would do well to heed these words, as well as the words of Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
