Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/04/21

Motivational Coach Poster, John Wooden Coaching Leadership Pyramid, Wall  Art Gift,

A coach is someone who can give correction without causing resentment.”   —   John Wooden

(It would’ve been nice if guys like Woody Hayes and Bobby Knight had paid heed to this quote!  There have been plenty of other abusive jerk coaches, but those two guys really stand out in my memory.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(Cute Jumble pun!  How much do you folks think we would actually BUY, if it weren’t for constantly being SOLD stuff?  Shelter, food and clothing seem to be the only real essentials, but everything else is pretty much dictated by marketing.  You absolutely NEED the brand new iPhone/Android because the one you already have is SO last year!  Our country actually had a pretty decent system of public transportation, that suited the majority of our needs.  Mainly buses, subways, trolleys, and commuter trains.  But in the 1950s, municipalities effectively abandoned much of that, because the auto industry seduced us all into the idea of everybody needing to own cars.  They gave us “independence” from schedules, and allowed us to go to other places.  FREEDOM!!!  For a long time the family standard was the station wagon.  My family never owned one – because a full sized sedan comfortably sat 4 or 5 – but the majority of my neighbors did.  In the 1980s the advent of the mini-van pretty much supplanted the station wagon.  They had a pretty good run, and some folks still buy them.  But the big push since the early 2000s has been the Sport Utility Vehicle.  Besides essentially replacing the mini-vans, they’re also making SUVs to replace the sedans.  And, of course we’re dutifully obeying our corporate masters, like the sheep that we are.  Our entire self worth is BUYing into their idea that we MUST keep up with the Joneses.  We BOUGHT in, because they’ve done – and continue to do – masterful jobs of SELLING us what they want us to – think that – we need.  Of course it’s much more than cellphones and automobiles, but most of you guys want me to get on with Jumble stuff.  Right?

David L. Hoyt has given us four brand new jumbles, to go along with the four clue words that are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  The only one that took me a second look was “dusok”.  We don’t get a lot of call for “kudos” these days.  It’s one of those rare words where there really is no singular form, like congratulations.  I guess it’s pretty much the Greek equivalent of the word.  The answer letter layout was a divine nine letter jumble.  Genuinely cryptic.  The quotation marks in the final answer slots kind of drives you to BUY, and the NDSIGE draws us to DESIGN.

Great, politically correct, urban scene cartoon.  Looks like Chi-town.  But it could just as easily be somewhere in NYC as well.  Now, everyone go download the Just Jumble app!  The guys need to buy their own island, or something.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
