Curtain Raiser

Hopefully, some of these issue will come up in the Democratic candidates debate! I hear the opening of the debate will feature all the candidates spilling out of a clown car! — YUR

Time to Fight & Be Proud, Colltalers

It’s deja vu all over again. The Trump administration’s threatened to bomb another country, but Iran may be tougher a foe than North Korea. Whether the crisis is averted, is not the president’s concern; having a war at the ready to help on his reelection is.
But the world is, indeed, concerned about it. Such a conflict would surely spill over the Middle East and boost the more than 70 million kicked out of their homes by wars, according to a United Nations study released on World Refugee Day. Worried yet?
The climate emergency is very much part of both equations. For instance, a report by NOAA, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric agency, found that global carbon dioxide emissions reached the highest levels in 61 years, last May, 3.5 ppm higher than the 411.2 ppm 2018 peak.

Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/26/19

Carrie Fisher, Return of the Jedi, Star Wars

All of us are looking for an outside ordeal that will internally change us.”   —   Carrie Fisher

(I think this comes from an interview she did that was published in Rolling Stone magazine . . . “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….”.  This appears to be the first Carrie Fisher quote to be used in the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Carrie into the Cryptoquote Club today!  My favorite step-niece-in-law? was a big fan of hers!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  It was hard to choose which new socks to buy because they were so – – –

Answer:  COMPAIRABLE

(I woulda thought that the quotation marks would just go around the PAIR portion of the word.  That’s the pun portion.  But, what do I know?  I’m just a guy with a blog.  I never majored in English, or anything.  Just a big-mouthed word-nerd, who loves puzzles.

No new clue words today.  Stand down, ralis95!  Smoke ’em, if you got ’em.  All four of the jumbles appear to be new though.  None of them caused me to stumble.  The answer letter layout was a dandy eleven letter jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.

Fine cartoon of two ladies shopping.  It’s hard for me to get excited about socks, slippers and gloves though.  Try to come up with a Jumble that features babydolls, teddies and bustiers.  C’mon, guys!  I know you can do it!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
