Welcome to Cipher Saturday!
Today, I'm out in the field helping my son with his Eagle Scout Project, so I don't know how often I can check in, but not to worry, I've pre-posted a new mystery for you. If you recognize the stylized picture of the person, you can go ahead and guess who it is. Or for extra fun, you can try and crack the cipher for bonus points.
You should be able to tell if you have the correct person if you type his name into Wikipedia as this will be the first photo in his entry.
Now, here's the cipher:
GYEJYKIVAZ CORAFRYKEN ALKTOGIDWE GULROGUJYR TYRZAEVWIG STOP VOREKPAVOZ GYEJYJUGZA END
+ + + + + + + + + +
Well, it's been quite a week! The world has again changed dramatically as the foundations have once again been moved. When I was growing up, we only had to worry about nuclear missiles landing in our town. Oh, for those halcyon days of yore! Alas, we now live in a world where madmen summon peafowl legions to do their doodie.
I was speaking to my wife recently and she was remarking on how strange it was to be married to someone who has a nemesis. I told her that I don't hold any ill-will towards the Super Villain PJM of West Texas, but it's hard to rest when he's threatening defenseless missionary nurses in Africa. My wife's words did give me pause, however. That is until I was going through some old family photos. Curiously I was still reflecting on the earlier nature verses nurture question when I came across the one below. I didn't recognize the fellow, but on the back side in my great-grandfather's handwriting was scrawled, "Baron von Whorterstein, my nemesis." I guess fighting villainy must run in my family.
At least some things never change.
