Cryptoquote Spoiler – 09/28/21

Calvin Coolidge - HISTORY

The school is not the end but only the beginning of an education.”   —   Calvin Coolidge

(“Silent Cal” was born on the 4th of July, way back in 1872!  He was Warren G. Harding’s Vice President, and succeeded him in August of 1923, after Harding’s fatal heart attack in San Francisco.  Cal was visiting his family home in Vermont at the time, and took the oath of office by kerosene lamp in the family’s parlor, becoming the 30th President.  He was generally considered fairly ineffective, and many believe his economic policies led to the 1929 stock market crash, which kicked off the Great Depression.  But apparently, he was an advocate of racial equality!  So, I guess he wasn’t all bad.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer: BACH TO BACH

(Both brilliant and incredibly stinky, at the same time!  This might have been a tough solve for those who have no appreciation for classical music.  Fortunately, I do have rudimentary knowledge of classical music.  Very rudimentary, but just enough to remember Bach’s “Brandenburg Concertos”.  I might even have a CD of Bach pieces.  Nope.  Just checked.  A lot of other great classical musicians, but no Bach.

All of today’s clue words can be considered classics, as they all reside on the ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, though we’ve definitely seen “mnhau” in earlier Jumbles.  Got ’em all immediately.  The answer letter layout was a triumphant ten letter jumble.  A well thought out, cryptic jumble!  Of course the quotation marks, and the conductor’s comment were the big clues, for me.

Very typical looking conductor.  I remember the orchestra conductor at my kids’ high school.  He looked just like this!  The first violinist’s joke was also a big clue.  I was never a big fan of Baroque period music.  Maybe that’s why I don’t have any Bach CDs!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
