Cryptoquote Spoiler – 05/02/20

Sen. Kamala Harris and Rep. Yvette Clarke reintroduce legislation ...

You don’t make progress standing on the sidelines, whimpering and complaining.”   —   Shirley Chisholm

(Ms. Chisholm certainly was a trailblazer!  A powerful voice in the House of Representatives for fourteen years.  She was the first black major party candidate for President of the United States, in 1972.  This also made her the first woman to ever run for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.  Tough lady from Brooklyn, but she was buried in Buffalo.  Most likely due to to her second husband.  This is the first of her quotes to be used for the Cryptoquote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, we proudly welcome Shirley Chisholm to the Cryptoquote Club!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  MEASURE UP

(Hmmm!  A very familiar stinky pun.  Even the cartoon looks similar to one we’ve had before.  We’re going to have to put Angela on this case!  She will get tot he bottom of it.

Surprise, surprise!  We have a new clue word today, in “smugly”!  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database.  And, “gmyusl” happens to be the only new jumble today.  The answer letter layout was another fine nine letter jumble.  UP did kind of stand out.  Maybe Hoyt should’ve switched the last two jumbles/words.

Great talking mountain cartoon!  I think, once upon a time, I might’ve wanted to climb Everest.  But, that urge is long gone.  The Flat Iron mountains, in Colorado, are more my speed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
