Quandary Resolution 3415
prognathous, pesher, subterfuge, lucent


The rabbi was remarkable for two things -- his prognathous lower jaw and bushy beard, and for offering a nightly pesher under one of the few remaining street lights in the ghetto, not because of religious fervor but as a subterfuge designed to muffle any noises that might be heard emanating from the sewer grate at his feet due to underground resistance activities, and also to provide a lucent spot at the end of the tunnel.
