Cryptoquote Spoiler – 04/03/20

Pope Francis makes it easier for Catholics to remarry - BBC News

Young people are just as attracted to the truth as they are convenience and expediency.”   —   Pope Francis

(It’s always we, in the older generations, that get in their way.  We were once just like them.  But, now most people are just too afraid of the truth.  They’d rather just trust what they’re told.  Sad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  In looking up photos of Pope Francis, I noticed that he only seems to smile when he’s wearing white, and not when he’s wearing purple or green!  Strange.   —   YUR

Answer:  TITLE WAIVE

(Ooh!  Great stinky pun!  Took me a few looks to see it, but a Jim Dandy, indeed.  Big romantic story of the early 20th century.  Maybe Ed figured that the monarchy was a dying concept, and just wanted to get ahead of the curve.  Little did he know that people like things that they’re comfortable with, regardless of how irrelevant they are.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “astee” having definitely been used sometime before.  I initially tried to write in taste, so I guess it did trip me up, slightly.  The others came to me instantly.  The answer letter layout was a nifty ten letter jumble.  Not obvious to me at all.  I guess the clue/question was the biggest clue.  But, my first inkling was LIKE A TON OF BRICKS!  LOL!  I didn’t pick up on TIDAL WAVE for a few minutes.

Fine 1930’s London, period piece cartoon.  The clothing is perfect!  I really like the knickers on the paper boy.  Remember them?  I used to deliver newspapers, as a boy.  Kind of a thankless job.  But, at least the pay was lousy!  No wonder kids today won’t do it.  Great Friday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.  Social Distancing!  It’s the order of the day.  But, this too shall pass.)   —   YUR
