Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/12/20

Job E. Hedges - Wikipedia

Lots of people know a good thing the minute the other fellow sees it first.”   —   J. E. Hedges

(I’m guessing that this quote is from the photographer based in Georgia.  That’s all I could find with my Google search.  No bio on the person.  It could be a woman, for all I know.  Never mind!  I found her.  She’s a Julie!  We welcome Julie to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends. This is definitely Job E. Hedges, as per Angela’s research!  Not Julie.  Google still has numerous attributions to a Job E. Hodges, but maybe they all experienced some kind of auto-correct issue?  Dunno!  Don’t really care.  I just don’t want to be part of the internet misinformation problem.  Darn!  WordPress won’t let me edit the Tag!  I can’t remove Julie E. Hedges.  Oh, well.  Be well and do good, friends.)    YUR

Clue/Question:  The subway train operator was in charge and had everything – – –

(A strap-hanging stinky pun!  I wonder if in Australia, do they ride in the Down Underground?  I can’t even remember the last time I rode a subway, it’s been that long.  I know it’s been since they did away with tokens, and went with Metro-Cards, but that is not saying a lot.  I think I used one of their ticket machines, and I’m glad it wasn’t during the rush hour, because I’m sure I fumbled with it.  I miss the old days when you’d just go up to the booth and buy some tokens.  I’ve always been a coin guy, and tokens were essentially coins.

There were no new clue words, and only one new jumble today.  We have seen “racyr”, “sudeo” and “tuniog” in the past.  None of them stumped me today.  The answer letter layout was a twinkling twelve letter jumble.  But, the clue/question made getting the final answer a piece of cake.

Fine cartoon of a subway operator, encouraging the passengers to step lively!  The operator is the engineer, or driver, but I think the longer subways had either multiple operators, or maybe a conductor, to help out with the other cars.  Like I said, it’s been quite a while.  I do remember the major subway etiquette – that some jerks always seem to ignore – is that you should let the exiting riders off first, before trying to rush on and – maybe –  get a seat.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
