Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/03/18

Every time I walk on grass I feel sorry because I know the grass is screaming at me.”   —   Barbara McClintock

(Well, lose some weight, Babs!  Oops!  I almost forgot.  Body shaming jokes are no longer allowed in our neo-fascist state!  Well, before somebody gets too bent out of shape, it looks like Ms. McClintock was never heavy.  So, the joke is more erroneous, than in-correct!  Barbara was actually a very accomplished scientist.  Corn is in the grass family, and she worked on maize chromosomes.  And, this is the first of her quotes to make it to the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting the spoilers.  So, welcome to the Cryptoquote Club, Dr. McClintock.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Your description of Ms McClintock’s study of corn [maize] brings to mind another teacher, George Washington Carver, a former scientist, inventor, and teacher, at Tuskegee University, who spent his career studying everything there is to know about the humble peanut [groundnut].
