John Houseman, The Paper Chase (1973)

I haven’t posted in this blog since August 2016. I had valid reasons to take a break when it started. But after awhile, it just became habit. So, today we begin again. 

“All diplomacy is a continuation of war by other means.” – Zhou Enlai

Today’s puzzle was a little political. We have Richard Nixon, Dag Hammarskjöld, and Hello Kitty. That’s just a bit much for me. 

Dag Hammarskjöld, Swedish diplomat, economist, and author, who served as the second Secretary-General of the United Nations, from April 1953 until his death in a plane crash in September 1961.

Hello Kitty (born November 1, 1974)

 
I did enjoy the nod to Miriam Makeba. You might appreciate her 1960 “The Click Song.” https://youtu.be/Qg4Fp-A7IRw
And what’s not to like about Nancy Sinatra?

Altogether, this was a very 1960s-1970s themed puzzle. A little esoteric for my taste. Finished in 39:42. Call it forty minutes.
