(Excellent!  No obvious *bonus clue* needed.  Part of the answer IS part of the trawler, but it’s not extraneous or gratuitous.  Nice depiction of Hanks and Sinise, too.  What a silly fairy tale of a movie, though.  Can you think of anybody that dim – in real life – that fell into more crap, and always came out smelling like a rose?  I don’t think George Dubya really qualifies, as he was born with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth.  I.Q. might be close!  But, Dubya’s folksy persona was much more contrived.  Oh, and Forrest never claimed to talk to God!

Great clue word jumbling and an excellent answer letter layout.  Had to think some to get the answer.  I flirted with the first word being TOP, for a minute or two.  But, I couldn’t do anything with FRSTINE.  I think the guys actually wanted to make this one a little more challenging.  Works for me!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

 (Momentum?!!  What I want to know is:  How the Hell can I slow things up a bit?  I feel like I’m slipping further and further behind, as the days just whiz by!  Be well and do good, friends.  And, take it easy on us older folk.)   —   YUR
