Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/05/20

Churchill and the Presidents: Woodrow Wilson - The Churchill Project - Hillsdale College

We cannot be separated in interest or divided in purpose.  We stand together until the end.”   —   Woodrow Wilson

(Likely uttered upon the U.S. entering World War I.  Wilson had initially wanted the U.S. to remain neutral.  But, when he learned that Germany was trying to entice Mexico to to join them and attack us, and German submarines were now targeting American shipping, he realized that neutrality was no longer feasible.  Nowadays, he is being castigated for his “racist” ideology.  But, it’s yet another example of our holier than thou mentality of not understanding that much of the world was simply not as enlightened as we are today.  He actually did a great deal of good for our country, and should be remembered more for that.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FILL IN FOR HIM

(If you were jonesing for a real stinky pun, today’s Jumble answer is the fix!  If you were ailing, this should put you on the mend.  David L and Jeff K are here to patch things up for us!  A very ful-filling stinky pun to start the work week. 

None of today’s clue words qualify as new.  However, three of the jumbles do appear to be new.  We have definitely seen “cilati” before.  And, as I had noted back then, it is merely “italic” written in reverse.  The answer letter layout was a twisty twelve letter jumble.  I thought it was pleasantly cryptic.  I think the clue/question and the final answer letter slots were the biggest clues, for me.

Great cartoon of a room that needs a good amount of attention.  The workmen seem to be well prepared to make the necessary repairs.  A fun Monday Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
