Cryptoquote Solved – 09/27/22

Hermione Lee's Biography of Tom Stoppard, Reviewed | The New Yorker

It’s not the voting that’s democracy; it’s the counting.   —   Tom Stoppard

(According to a Gallup poll:  “31% of Americans identified as Democrats, 25% identified as Republican, and 41% as Independent.”  And, “Sixty-seven percent of independents said they do NOT want Trump to run again, while just 28% said they do.”  –  NPR/PBS poll.  And, these numbers aren’t really all that current.  With SCOTUS repealing Roe v. Wade, and hinting that they might look to repeal Gay marriages, and perhaps even interracial marriages, the January 6th hearings, and the Mar A Lago FBI raid findings, I think that Trump’s support is likely even less than above.  Sometimes it takes some time for – basically good – people to come to their senses.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  IN HIGH DEMAND

(Sure, you’ve always had your hillbillies.  But I think that the more affluent build up in the hills these days, and the less affluent end up in the valleys and lowlands.  Besides the great views, you’re less likely to be effected by the heavy rains up in the mountains.  But I guess there are also those wealthy folk who like to build along the beaches and shores, who risk damage from storm surges.  I usually have a little less sympathy for when they have losses.  If you don’t realize that the sea is unforgiving, then you kinda get what you deserve.

All of today’s clue words reside in the ralis95 Pantheon of Jumble clue words.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, but we’ve definitely had “rnihed” sometime in the past.  No real toughies for me.  The answer letter layout was a towering twelve letter jumble.  It couldn’t possibly keep the final answer hidden from me though.  Not with all the D’s, H’s and I’s.

Fine Coming Soon, future development cartoon.  I really liked the cityscape down below them.  It looks like a river runs through it, and a nice bridge crosses it.  This couple must be doing very well, being able to build on high, and driving that snazzy Jumble-mobile!  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
