Buzz Aldrin's Son Tells His Side of the Story - The Atlantic

Some things just can’t be described.  And stepping onto the moon was one of them.”   —   Buzz Aldrin

(Ol’ Buzz is one of the few who can say this.  Buzz is 92 years old now, and this appears to be his first quote at the Cryptoquote.  So, we welcome Buzz Aldrin to the Cryptoquote Club today!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Jumble Solved – 07/21/22

Annual Boardroom Summit & Peer Exchange - Corporate Board Member

Visual Description:  Unfettered capitalism.

DMUYD  =  MUDDY,  RBETE  =  BERET,  NRYEGT  =  GENTRY,  GELEAL  =  ALLEGE   —   Giving us:  DDYEREGERAEG

Clue/Question:  When the company’s board members voted to raise prices, the – – –

BEIRAT – Newly Created Advisory Board is the Mouthpiece for Members and  Customers at Banque Raiffeisen Luxembourg – IRU

Answer:  GREEDY AGREED

(A nice, sing-songy Jumble answer!  The Jumble pretty much said it all, so I won’t bother going off on a rant.  But you all know I could!

We have seen all of these clue words in the past.  But it’s looking like all of the jumbles are coming up as new, at least for me.  I thought that both “rbete” and “nyregt” were nicely cryptic.  The answer letter layout was a doozy of a dozen letter jumble.  Not a classic pun, but I was able to pick up on it right away.

Fine cartoon of a corporate boardroom.  These folks look too happy to be raising prices, but with the current supply chain issues, the resulting inflation, and rising fuel costs, a lot of restaurants have been forced to raise their prices and/or add a surcharge to their bills.  We had it good for a VERY long time, and economic downturns are inevitable.  But we will get through it, with a little belt tightening, and some common sense.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
