(This sticky pun is a good stinky pun!  Pun haters around the world are groaning loudly.  But, film buffs are getting a good chuckle from it.  Sally Field won a Best Actress Oscar for her role as Norma Rae, in the film of the same name, way back in 1980.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends, but all of the jumbles are coming up as new.  None of them tripped me up any though.  The answer letter layout was a great thirteen letter jumble.  Nicely cryptic, indeed.  The big clue came in the clue/question, with it being a glue factory!

Fine factory cartoon.  Very reminiscent of “Norma Rae”.  Sally beat out some big names that year.  Jill Clayburgh, Jane Fonda, Marsha Mason and Bette Midler.  Back in those days I’d have watched a good number of the nominated movies, but nowadays only one or two.  This year I saw “Green Book”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “A Star is Born”.  Of those three I actually liked “A Star is Born” best.  It’s a very moving story, and the entire cast was great.  Enjoy the weekend, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Sally Field may have acted in some below **** star movies, but I can’t recall a bad perfor- mance by her.
    Some folks may not like Unions, which is fine, but as far as I know, there are very few 12 yr. olds working in unsafe coal mines and factories with unliveable (decent) wages.
    Be Blessed.

    Unions can be as corrupt as corporate management and politicians in more modern times, but right you are, Ken, about the good unions accomplished early on, and those gains were hard-fought and hard-won.

    Sally Field was great in “Norma Rae” and deserved that award. That was not the film, as I thought until I just checked, for which she gave her /wince/ “You liked me. You really liked me!” speech. That came for “Places of the Heart,” a 1984 film that is much less memorable for me than “Norma Rae.”

    There are always exceptions, David. It’s just human nature. Too many – but not all – people have the tendency to become power hungry/greedy. But, by and large, unions have been – and still are – beneficial to workers and to society.

    I did the same as you, and looked up Sally’s acceptance speeches! LOL! — YUR
