Cryptoquote Spoiler – 10/22/20

Portrait of Woodrow Wilson Painting by Sir William Orpen

No man that does not see visions will ever realize any high hope or undertake any high enterprise.”   —   Woodrow Wilson

(As long as he didn’t claim to have had “conversations with God”, I can’t condemn him.  Other than the overly punitive Treaty of Versailles, which indirectly resulted in WWII, I think he was a very good President.  21st Century sensibilities put too much fault on his so-called racist policies, but I don’t think he actually hated anyone.  He was just the victim of his upbringing, and the prevailing white man’s superiority mindset of the time.  Fortunately, most of us are much more enlightened these day.  Unfortunately, that doesn’t go for all of us.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  SECURING THE JOB

(A very clever pun.  And, an answer that took a little bit of work.  At least it did for me.  This puts me in mind of the “Night at the Museum” movies, starring Ben Stiller.  I know I saw the first one, and possibly parts of the second one.  But, I’m pretty sure I haven’t seen any of the third.

No new clue words today.  I thought “rancid” might be new, but no.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely seen “nupdo” before.  I had a little trouble with “nirdac”, but I didn’t have to back into “rancid.  I thought the answer letter layout was an excellent eleven letter jumble.  I feel it didn’t give anything away.  I just figured that the third word had to be JOB, and the first word ended in ING.  It still took me about half a minute to figure out the USRCE though.

Fine museum cartoon.  It looks like the American Museum of Natural History, in New York City, as in the first movie.  The young guy doesn’t look much like Ben Stiller though.  I guess Jeff was going more generic with this.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
