(Unusual) Cryptoquote Spoiler – 06/13/11

Fine art is knowledge made visible.”   —   Gustave Courbet

(For some strange reason, in my newspaper, the first five coded words were on the top line.  Then there was a BIG gap, of about five or six lines of empty space, followed by a line that has the sixth coded word and the author.  I have no idea if this was intentional on the part of the cryptoquote people, or just some flukie thing my newspaper did.  Not knowing if something was missing kind of threw me for a bit.  The “J” was long suspected to be the “E”, but I was reluctant to commit.  My first impression of “RM” being “IS” was also tempered by the myriad other possibilities.  But, I couldn’t come up with any other word for the sixth coded word, using those other possible letters, especially since the coded word began with a “P”.  It couldn’t be pitiful.  I considered moronic, but the three other coded words ending in “J” were unlikely to end in “C”.  Very strange, indeed.)   —   YUR

PS.  Given my druthers, I’m always going to go with the classic nude!  Just consider yourself lucky I didn’t opt for
