Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/03/20

Who was Henry George?

We cannot suppose that some have a right to be in this world and others no right.”   —   Henry George

(I believe this guy has been intentionally marginalized in American history.  He was a political economist and journalist.  He was extremely popular in his day, by everyone except the wealthy.  I want to read up on the guy, because he was definitely ahead of his time.  And, we welcome him to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I came up with two new clue words, but it looks like Angela has only confirmed “toothy” as new.  I guess that means we have seen “spigot” before, probably on a Sunday Jumble.  It sounded familiar to me, so it might not have been all that long ago.  Either way, ralis95 has some updating to do!  All of the jumbles appear to be new though.    The answer letter layout was a lengthy thirteen letter jumble.  I thought it was nicely cryptic.  As always, quotation marks and hyphens are a big help.

Fun cartoon of a middle aged couple.  When you’re going that bald you shouldn’t try rocking a pony tail.  Not a good look.  It’s a little like dying your hair dark, but allowing your beard to grow in gray.  I’ve seen a few people do that, and I just wonder WTF!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
