Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 01/19/20

The world is quickly bored by the recital of misfortune and willingly avoids the sight of distress.”   —   Somerset Maugham

(Boy, have things changed since Maugham’s days!  People may not watch the news as much these days, but with the internet and social media misfortune and distress are the order of the day.  It’s unfortunate, because it leads to an intolerant, mob mentality.  A kangaroo court of public opinion.  People have become cowed to the popular point of view, and that’s kind of pathetic.  I still prefer looking at both sides of an issue, and not jumping to conclusions, but I feel like I’m in a rapidly shrinking minority.  Remember when this was more the norm?  “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.  Take this stand these days and you could be ostracized!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HEIR THEIR GRIEVANCES

(If the wife is Rex’s guardian she should be alright.  But, the kids are screwed!  Unfortunately, a lot of people use their will to kind of punish their children.  It’s unfortunate, but it’s not uncommon.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Ralis95 is the head HONCHO of clue word databases, but he has nothing to do today.  Five of the jumbles came up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “CNOOHH” before.  I didn’t struggle with any of the jumbles this morning.  The answer letter layout was beautiful fourteen letter jumble.  Very nicely cryptic.  The quotation marks and the word THEIR were the big clue for me.

Great cartoon of a lawyer’s office.  Love the portrait!  Love Rex.  Hate the slacker son.  LOL!  The lawyer could be me.  Fine Sunday Jumble all around.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
