Look over your shoulder now and then to be sure that someone’s following you.”   —   Henry Gilmer

(I could find nothing on this author.  This might not be his full name, and it’s likely that he’s still alive.  I’m thinking that he might be some kind of motivational speaker, or something.  This quote might sound like a contradiction to Satchel Paige‘s famous quote: “Don’t look back.  Something might be gaining on you.”  But, it comes from a completely different context.  Satchel’s comes from a running/sports perspective, where any distraction could cost you dearly.  But, Mr. Gilmer’s comes from a marching/leading angle, where you might think most/many are with you, when in reality you could just be Whistling Dixie!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Visual Description:  “Hurry In!” sale at the auto dealership.


Clue/Question:  When the dealer lowered the prices on the sports cars, they . . .

Answer:  WENT FAST

(I enjoyed all of the clue words!  They were all well-scrambled, but I was able to get them very quickly today.  This would be a good one for Richard to come in with a sentence that uses all the words.  I really like “thwart”, and I used to like “pundit” . . . until just about everybody became one.  But for me, today’s answer was super obvious.  No fault of the answer letter layout!  It just wasn’t that much of a challenge today.  If you’re in, or are going to be in, the path of hurricane Irene please take all necessary precautions.  I was out fairly early this morning, getting things that we needed anyway, and I feel like I avoided the rush.  Everybody keep their fingers crossed that we don’t lose a chunk of the Washington Monument!  Apparently, Tuesday’s earthquake put some significant cracks in it, and officials are worried.  Check in with the elderly and the shut-ins, and try to have some kind of communication plan for your family and loved ones.  Take care, friends!)   —   YUR
