Answer:  MADE MORE MONEY

(I guess this is a doubly stinky pun, as it’s a double entendré . . . sorta.  There’s nothing risqué about either meaning.  Just that by producing more money the workers are earning more money.  Double meaning using the same words.  I can remember – way back – when I was a wage earner, as opposed to a salaried employee.  Time and a half was sweet!  Ah, the good old days!

Great old clue words today!  It’s been a while since we’ve seen some of them.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, but we’ve definitely seen “ngrop” before.  The answer letter layout was a thrilling thirteen letter jumble, but the final answer came to me immediately.  Probably because of the layout of the final answer slots.

Fine cartoon of employees working at a U.S. Mint.  Can’t tell which one though.  I know there are mints in West Point, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco, but there could be others I suppose.  I like the hairnets and goggles.  I’m guessing that the commemorative coins they’re pressing are quarters, but who knows!?  Very fine Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Solved – 04/14/22

What Confucius Teaches Us About Modern American Justice - The Atlantic

He who chases two rabbits catches neither.”   —   Confucius

(You’d think by now I’d be a little keener to “He who” quotes, but I struggled mightily on this cipher!  I tried AN, AS, AT, IF, IN, IT, and ON.  I guess I was close with WE, but I couldn’t make a W fit in certain other words.  And, RABBITS never jumped out at me.  LOL!  I was thinking BIGGEST or FULLEST.  Ugh!  So, I Googled “common two letter words”.  I gave TO a quick try, thinking TO ITS, but quickly abandoned that.  Finally, I saw HE and then I could see the H in WHO!  Which helped me to see TWO.  I should do the Cryptoquote before the Celebrity Cipher, because that is generally pretty easy, and I get a little cocky!  Also, I can’t be certain, but this quote seems a little familiar to me.  Anybody else remember it?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
