Jumble Solved – 10/13/22

Wicca Moon – Climbing Moss

Visual Description:  New Age shop.

NALTS  =  SLANT,  LCROO  =  COLOR,  SLOTCE  =  CLOSET,  RLIAYF  =  FAIRLY   —   Giving us:  SLACLRCETARY

Clue/Question:  The quality of this particular transparent form of quartz was – – –

Using Crystals for Violet Flame - Crystal Reading

Answer:  CRYSTAL CLEAR

(Question:  “Are we clear?”  response:  “Yes, sir.”  Emphatic question:  “ARE WE CLEAR?!!  response:  “Crystal.”  Okay, kids.  Name the movie.  I’m sure that many of you, well at least some of you, know the movie.  It was very big in the early 1990s.  With an all-star cast, no less.

All of today’s clue words have been used in earlier Jumbles.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, for me, but we’ve definitely seen “nalts” prior to today.  None of them tripped me up.  The answer letter layout was a tremendous twelve letter jumble.  It was beautifully cryptic.  The “no impurities” and “healing powers” lines in the cartoon led to a quick solve, for me.

Fine cartoon of the new age shopper and shop worker.  A lot of people put a lot of stock in crystals.  I thought the incense burning on the counter was a nice touch.  Fun Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Cryptoquote Solved – 10/13/22

Ayn Rand's Legacy of Unifying Social Cruelty

The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”   —   Ayn Rand

(A very popular line with people who are – purportedly – rugged individualists.  But apparently the quote is mis-attributed to Ms. Rand.  There is no record of her uttering, or writing, these words.  But, in her book “The Fountainhead”, the main character, Howard Roark, does reply to the question:  “My dear fellow, who will let you?” with: “That’s not the point. The point is, who will stop me?” I have never actually read any of her works, but – from what I’ve heard – it sounds to me that she had a very negative reaction to the socialist/communist government that had taken over her Mother Russia Which is probably why she left, and came to America.  Libertarians love her, but she rejected the term “libertarian”.  All I really know is that while growing up everyone pronounced her name like Ann, but somewhere along the line the pronunciation became like Ine.  Considering her given name was Alisa, then changed to Alice, I have no idea where, or how, she came up with the pen name Ayn.  Maybe she was the Prince of her day?  Maybe Prince was a fan of her works?  Please excuse the mental diarrhea.  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
