Are we looking for a word for Charles Gibson - TV newsguy or Charles Gibson - creator of the Gibson Girl? I can't find a word for either one but someone else might.


Does it have to be Charles Gibson? Could it be Charles Browne, America's first STANDUP comedian, instead?

I am not sure because we have Jackson Browne for Empty.

BUT, it may not be Charles Gibson either because Charles Jackson wrote LOST Weekend.

Have we used Phil Jackson yet? I remember seeing him in a match but I can't find it.

I just noticed that the first Associated Word should be #11, not #20. That's what comes of last minute clue shuffling. Sorry.

Answer #11 is Perry Mason, so #11 is the word for Warren William.
