If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.”   —   Margaret Fuller

(A great quote, from a woman who was a journalist, editor and critic.  But also a women’s rights advocate, ahead of both Stanton and Anthony.  She had an ominous foreboding of her own death, and she died at age 40, when her freighter, returning from Europe, slammed into a sandbar.  They were only 50 yards or so from shore, but nobody helped them!  They were too busy collecting the cargo.  She drowned along with her husband and child.  So tragic.  Should have learned to swim!  This is the first quote of hers to be used for the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we welcome Margaret Fuller to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SODAPRESSING

(Even with the over-abundance of sugar they’re probably still healthier than diet sodas.  Those artificial sweeteners they use are scary.  And, they’re not fooling anybody.  Well, at least not me.  I can take one sip of a diet soda and taste the phoniness.  Adherents say things like:  Oh, you get used to it!  or  Regular soda tastes too sweet when you’re a diet drinker.  Bleh!  To me, diet soda tastes sweeter, but in an unnatural way.  But, I fully acknowledge that sodas pack on the pounds.  Which is why I drink water.  On a rare occasion I’ll drink a ginger ale, usually 30 to 40 less calories.

There are no new clue words today.  However, all four jumbles are coming up as new.  They were all pretty good today too.  As usual I hesitated on “casino”.  I thought “arose” was right, but I wrote it in lightly.  But, I really screwed up on “arplis”.  I wrote down PLIARS!  Thinking PLIERS.  So, with the PLA – instead of the SPR – I came up with the answer:  “SODA-PLEASING”!  I didn’t really like it, but it fit.  It wasn’t until WordPress flagged PLIARS that I realized my error.  OY!  Either way, great twelve letter jumble for the answer letter layout.

The cartoon does a great job of showing the ladies’ . . . displeasure!  LOL!  Try water with a wedge of lemon, or lime.  Be well and do good, friends!)   —   YUR
