It's ScuttleButton Time!

Oct. 15 ScuttleButton

Just back from my final bit of traveling before the election, this last stop a visit to member station WFSU in Tallahassee, Fla., and a dinner/speech before the wonderful and politically obsessed folks at the Tiger Bay Club.  More details on Monday.

But first, ScuttleButton.

Don't forget how to play.  As you know, every Friday on this blog, I put forward a vertical display of buttons.  Your job is to 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

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.
