Buttons
Sample Puzzle

The first button was for Huey Newton, a leading member of the Black Panthers, in the late 1960s. Pick a word from it: Huey.

The second is for Thomas E. Dewey, who ran for president in 1944 against Franklin D. Roosevelt, and in 1948, in the famous upset loss to Harry Truman. Take the word Dewey.

Finally, here's a button for Louis Lefkowitz, the longtime New York attorney general. He ran for mayor of New York City in 1961, and lost to incumbent Democrat Robert F. Wagner. From this, we take Louis.


And, with a word from each button, we have the answer: Huey, Dewey and Louie.

Now, take a crack at this week's puzzle.
