Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/04/20

Maya Angelou, poet and author, dies at 86 - CBS News

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”   —   Maya Angelou

(I guess it all kinda depends on what type of story you’re bearing/hiding.  It’s been a month, or so, since we’ve had a Maya Angelou quote.  Good to see her again.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 06/04/20

6 Reasons Why You Should Run on a Treadmill | ACTIVE

Visual Description:  Aah, shut up and run!

LAMAL  =  LLAMA,  DARUF  =  FRAUD,  GILAOE  =  GOALIE,  LANTEG  =  TANGLE   —   Giving us:  LMFRUOINL

Clue/Question:  The gym installed some mediocre jogging machines that were – – –

Answer:  RUN OF THE MILL

(Okay.  So, it is a stinky pun.  But, this entire Jumble just seemed to be . . . run of the mill.  Maybe, I’m just in a cranky mood.  I haven’t been sleeping well, due to a shoulder problem.  Thankfully, I’m having an MRI on it tomorrow.  Hopefully, a shot of cortisone will be all that I need.  But, if there’s a tear I will be opting for surgery.  Life is too short to be living in pain.

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new for me.  But, we’ve definitely seen “lamal” sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a nifty nine letter jumble.  It hid the final answer very well.  Even though, the answer was pretty evident.

Fine fitness/gym cartoon.  Treadmills are fine, if you’re relatively young and in decent shape.  But, they can wear away at your knees!  You’re better off on the stationary bikes and the elliptical machines.  So sayeth my orthopedic surgeon.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

George Floyd’s Tears Echoes Through Eternity!

I’ve always respected the institution of the police department. But, it is abundantly clear there are some members who never should’ve been sworn in. These few never should’ve graduated the academy. And, better yet, they never should’ve been ACCEPTED into the academy! All of our police departments need greater, in depth, psychological analyses of their applicants. And, they need constant psychological screening of the recruits to weed out the ones who may have slipped through the cracks. Racism is only one of the problems. The bigger one, in my mind, are those who were bullied and/or abused in their youth, or who may have been disenfranchised to the point where becoming a cop is their big chance to GET EVEN! We can not allow people like this to wear a badge and carry a gun. We also need to end the practice of the “blue wall of silence”. It’s not being a “rat” when you help to weed out the bad elements. You are actually making the force stronger by removing these weak, and potentially dangerous, links. The police need to police themselves better. And, if they won’t take the job seriously, they will have to concede to a civilian review board. One with real teeth.
And, of course, they need to re-evaluate some of their “training”, because they can’t continue to fall back on: “they were only doing what they were trained to do.” Be well and do good, friends. — YUR

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.

Albert Einstein

In the height of ’Jihadi John’ reign of terror, the Islamic State executioner who derives pleasure in executing journalists, that image stuck in my mind. However, it has been replaced with Derek Chauvin grinding his knee into George Floyd’s neck while the poor man cried for mercy. When Jihadi John murdered several innocent journalists, mostly whites. I was angry and wrote about the atrocities of ISIS. It has come as a surprise that people are eerily silent about the murder of George Floyd.

Alas, Derek and countless other heartless cops in the US are terrorists protected by the state. The US President has threatened to kill looters but killers like Derek would not have been arrested without…
