It is a folly to expect men to do all that they may be reasonably expected to do.”   —   Richard Whately

(The Anglican archbishop of Dublin, from back in the mid 1800s.  It looks like this cat wore a lot of hats!  He was also an English rhetorician, logician, economist, academic and theologianAin’t Googling stuff fun?  This quote is so true, and it’s the first quote from the archbishop, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FIRST AND FOURMOST

(This was not a gimme!  When I first saw the question and answer letter layout I thought:  Uh oh!  For a few minutes I thought I might have to put it out there for one of you guys to solve.  I was trying to come up with a relevant song at first.  But, it ended up being a play on the Beatles’ early nickname:  The Fab Four.

Surprisingly, Hoyt gave us another new clue word today, in “puffin”.  So, it looks like more work for ralis95, and his world famous clue word database.  The other five were interesting clue words, but not new.  All six jumbles came up as new.  The answer letter layout was a super sixteen letter jumble.  Nothing obvious about it.  Somehow, I saw FIRST, and the rest fell into place.

I’m glad that the “American Bandstand” sign was behind Dick Clark, because my first impression was a young Bob Barker, with maybe a little Ernie Anastos thrown in!  Only people in the Metro NYC area know Ernie, but I’ll show you a photo.  But, I can see Dick Clark too!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
