Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/01/21

It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.”   —   Thomas Jefferson

(I think this is something T.J. came up with to tell Martha, so he could actually spend a bunch of time with Sally!  Ol’ Tom was definitely a dog.  But he didn’t deserve to have his statues desecrated.  NO statues should be desecrated!  Hopefully, that nonsense is over.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When Zero courted his girlfriend Nada, he whispered – – –

Answer:  SWEET NOTHINGS

(“You made me so very happy.  You made me so so very happy, baby.  I’m so glad you came . . . into my li-i-ife!”  A little sweet nothing from Blood, Sweat and Tears, circa 1968-69.   I could make this today’s song, but I won’t.  Today’s answer was a good pun, but it was an instant solve.  Didn’t have to check off any letters, or anything.  NOTHING to it!

All four clue words are NOTHING new to the ralis95 clue word database.  Although, all of today’s jumbles did come up as new.  I didn’t draw a BLANK on any of them though.  The thirteen letter answer letter layout jumble was far from INSIGNIFICANT.  It would have disguised the final answer very nicely, if it wasn’t VOID of obviousness!

But the cartoon is cute, if not a little strange.  I always enjoy anthropomorphic numbers and letters.  This put me in mind of an old couple, sitting on a park bench, screaming their sweet nothings at each other, because they’re so hard of hearing.  For them whispering is a thing of the past!  Feels like a Monday, but it’s already Tuesday.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Life in Gaza and occupied territories remains miserable. But there’s an opening and the U.S. and the UN should seize it at once.
Rallies against Brazil’s president, a decision against Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil and Chevron woes, and the horrifying discovery of bodies of native kids mass buried in Canada rocked the week. But today’s 100 years of the Tulsa Massacre, an entire Black neighborhood razed but to be never forgotten again.
In Germany, speaking of unforgettable 20th-century massacres, the government has formally recognized atrocities against Namibia’s Herero and Nama people and pledged to “recognize the immense suffering inflicted.” Regardless of how much such gestures resonate within both nations, it’s fair to expect that they should be coming in cascades from…
