(Wow!  This is the guy who wrote Seven Days in May.  A terrific political thriller about an attempted military coup, right here in the US of A!  A great book, that they made into a great movie, starring Burt Lancaster, Kirk Douglas, Fredric March and Ava Gardner.  What a cast!  If you get a chance, you really should watch this movie.  You can probably find it on Netflix, and it occasionally comes on Turner Classic Movies.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 01/11/15
