(Tough!) Sunday Cryptoquote Spoiler – 12/06/20

163 Laurence J. Peter | BC Booklook

Psychiatry enables us to correct our faults by confessing our parent’s shortcomings.”   —   Laurence Peter

(I wonder if Dr. Larry Petey had any idea, when he said this, that it was going to make for one of the toughest Cryptoquotes of all time!  I was almost going to give up on this one, and throw myself on the mercy of the readers.  I was 99.9% sure the K was the S, but that was about it.  With that in mind, I went out on a limb and supposed that NK was US and LB was TO.  Then something BNJ could be OUR.  Then, I was able to surmise/guess the TDI was ING.  Finally, I was able to see CONFESSING.  Then CORRECT.  From there things fell neatly into place.  The other tough thing – in my newspaper at least – was the last word was broken down, from one line to the next, as KSBJLO-

BETTDIK.  I couldn’t be sure it was two words hyphenated, or one long word that ran out of space on one line, and continued on the next.  I now know it’s one long word, but the break is not a logical break.  But, I suppose the newspaper people wouldn’t know this, unless THEY solved it first themselves.  And, that seems highly unlikely!

Great quote though!  Be well – and if you’re not well don’t simply put all the blame on your parents – and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
