We relish news of our heroes, forgetting that we are extraordinary to somebody too.”   —   Helen Hayes

(I think she is very generous in her use of the word “heroes”.  Celebrities, be they movie stars or athletes, while generally being admirable, don’t quite meet my definition of hero.  Every day people; firemen, teachers, doctors/veterinarians, soldiers, police, moms and dads, etc. are the real heroes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  CATCHY PHRASE

(Puts me in mind of one of my all-time favorite movies:  Midnight Run!  From waaay back in 1988, it starred Robert De Niro as the bounty hunter, who is tasked with finding and returning the bail jumping Mafia accountant, played by Charles Grodin.  It was a great action/comedy/buddy film.  If you haven’t seen it, or just want to see it again, you can probably find it on Netflix.  Every now and then it shows up on HBO and other cable networks.

There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles came up as new.  I didn’t find any of them to be tough though.  The answer letter layout was a super jumble.  It didn’t give the answer away.  The cartoon does a great job of setting up the gag/pun.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
