It's ScuttleButton Time!

ScuttleButton for Aug. 19

It's been two weeks since the last ScuttleButton.  Now you know why the weather this summer has been so unsettling and unforgiving.

Fortunately, we're back.  And IMHO this week's puzzle takes some work.

I hope you haven't forgotten how to play.  Once a week on this blog, there are buttons displayed vertically. Simply take one word (or concept) per button, add 'em up, and, hopefully, you will arrive at a famous name or a familiar expression. (And seriously, by familiar, I mean it's something that more than one person on Earth would recognize.)

And don't focus on a political answer. It doesn't necessarily have to be political, though it could be.

A correct answer chosen at random gets his or her name in this column. Personally, I can't imagine a greater honor.

You can't use the comments box at the bottom of the page for your answer. Send submission (plus your name and city/state — you won't win without that) to politicaljunkie@npr.org.

Good luck, and have a great weekend!

P.S. I usually reveal the answer — and announce the winner — in this space on Tuesdays.  So you should get your answer in by then.
