Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/04/20

Robert Southey, Commoner (1792), Poet Laureate (1813) | Art UK

How little do they see what really is, who frame their hasty judgment upon that which seems.”   —   Robert Southey

(It’s like I always tell you folks.  You have to learn to read between the lines.  It may take more than a little effort, because the news and information we are being fed – on a daily basis – is very carefully framed.  They completely ignore things that they don’t want us to know, and meticulously shape what they do want us to *know*.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 10/04/20

Broadway shutdown extends to June amid coronavirus pandemic |

Visual Description:  The classics on Broadway.


Clue/Question:  NYC’s Broadway district has numerous theaters which makes it easy to go – – –

Pre-Answer:  Four Words  (4-letters)  (5-letters)  (2-letters)  (5-letters)  

List of NYC Broadway Shows | Theater Reviews, Half Price Tickets 2020


(I guess there is a time and place for these kinds of plays on words.  The place is here at The Jumble, and the time is daily!  Broadway is – unfortunately – dead in the water right now, due to the pandemic.  SO many people out of work, from the actors, directors, various stage hands, ushers and box office folks.  And, the people who run the little bar/refreshment stands for intermission, and the people hawking tee-shirts.  Add in all the surrounding restaurants and parking lots that rely on theater goers and you are talking about a huge number of people.  This goes for off-Broadway productions as well, of course.  The very few shows that may have been filmed, and now streamed on Netflix and such can’t begin to offset the overall losses.  And of course, the city of New York is losing scads of money from lost tourist/hotel revenue.  It’s a sad sad situation, my friends.

But, at least we have the Jumble to entertain us.  And, today we have a brand new clue word, in “gangly”, which surprisingly WordPress does not seem recognize.  They only recognize gangling.  Regardless, it will have to be added to the ralis95 clue word database!  Five of today’s jumbles appear to be new, with only “pectac” having definitely been used before.  I thought that a few of today’s jumbles were fairly challenging.  The answer letter layout was a brilliant sixteen letter jumble.  Beautifully cryptic.  I was only able to pick up on the clue/question, and the cartoon’s clues.  Nothing in the answer letter layout tipped me off.

Great cartoon of New York City’s theater district!  Smart move showing mostly Broadway revivals, and a play based upon a famous movie.  But, what?  No musical?  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.  Stay away from that Covid-19!  Let’s try to be smarter about it than some of our “leaders”.)   —   YUR
