A CORRECTION. An astute visitor brought to my attention an error in one of the Wheel of Fortune puzzles. According to Leah C.,

Dont Worry Be Happy is by Bobby McFerrin not Bob Marley. The confusion may stem from the fact that Bob Marley did a song called Three Little Birds that said "don't worry about a thing" in the chorus.

Many thanks to Leah for pointing that out.
