"Five-pointed, say" is STARLIKE. Real stars do not have points. And I initially thought REGIME was wrong for "Coordinated health program" since a regime is an authoritarian or dictatorial system of government. But my Webster's dictionary does indeed show the synonym "regimen" as the first definition of "regime."

Jules Markey's Daily News crossword includes LAIRS, BAIRNS, CHAIR, CONAIR, SEAAIR ("What sailors breathe"), PETHAIR, ASTAIRE, IMPAIRED, PRAIRIEDOG, HOMEREPAIR, PAIROFSOCKS, CLAIRVOYANT, UPTONSINCLAIR and UPSTAIRSDOWNSTAIRS. The "AIR" of each answer is in a single square. "Gas station supply"---and what is found in those answers---is COMPRESSEDAIR. And yes, the last three letters of COMPRESSEDAIR are also in a single square. And Markey came up with this clever clue: "Producer of many revivals" for EMT.

I would love to get Windows 10---and why was there no Windows 9?---but several friends have installed it and wound up losing files and graphics. Then they uninstalled it. Microsoft obviously has a lot of bugs to fix!
