Cryptoquote Spoiler – 11/14/20

Kentucky braces for chaotic primary election after cuts to polling locations  - CNNPolitics

The polls are places where you stand in line for a chance to decide who will spend your money.”   —   Source Obscure

(That sounds about right.  But, this recent election goes beyond the pale!  I’ve never seen a losing side this ridiculously recalcitrant before.  Biden won the electoral vote 306, to Trump’s 232.  And, it coincides with Biden’s popular vote victory of 78,631,718 to Trump’s 72,907,488.  A difference of 5,724,230!  Even the Department of Homeland Security – which is currently under Trump’s control – has called the election “the most secure in American history”.  Countless judges have thrown out Trump’s election fraud suits.  Yet he still refuses to concede what is obvious to everyone but him, and his circle of simpering sycophants.  How he could have garnered 47.3% of the American electorate is beyond me.  I guess a whole lot of them bought into the ridiculous fear tactics that he employed.  Sad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Spoiler – 11/14/20

Vic Carr, the 'paint guy' at Corinth hardware store, expresses himself with  'paint-by-neighbor' boards

Clue/Question:  The carpenter shopped for a new hammer that would be – – –

This Howard County hardware store has seen — and sold — it all - The  Washington Post

Answer:  TOUGH AS NAILS

(Ooh!  This is almost not a pun.  It’s more of a relationship thing.  Have you heard the phrase:  Be the hammer, not the nail.  Or, like in El Condor Pasa, by Simon & Garfunkel:  I’d rather be a hammer than a nail.  To be a good hammer you have to be tougher than nails!

Today, all the clue words were faithful old friends.  However, all of their jumbles are coming up as new!  No stumpers today, for me.  The answer letter layout was a terrific twelve letter jumble.  It gave nothing away.

Great hardware store cartoon.  Toilet seats, and faucets.  Circular saws and hammers!  And, drawers full of different nails and screws, and nuts and bolts.  Who doesn’t love a hardware store???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
