Answer:  CITIZEN SHIPS

(130 years ago today, the Statue of Liberty arrived aboard the French ship Isere.  When erected, it was the first thing arriving immigrants saw as they approached New York Harbor.

There were no new clue words today, but all the jumbles were new to this blog, although the one for “cynic” is just in alphabetic order.  The answer letter layout was nicely cryptic!  I can see some people having some difficulty coming up with the answer.  The cartoon was lots of fun.  It looks like this ship had mainly Eastern Europeans!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    As a descendant of eastern Europeans, I really enjoyed today’s Jumble. Hope all is well, Uncle Rave. If you have a minute, you may want to hear some of my latest CD at marcberner.com. Thanks!

    Unc, I love it — versatile blogger award! WOW!

    Another absolutely GRAND jumbler. LOVE it!!! The first part had me stumped. I unjumbled the clue words rather quickly, and had SHIPS for the 2nd word, but could not figure out the first. As I do when I’m stumped, I think about the puzzler on and off during the day. Citizenship hit me a few minutes ago when working about the kitchen. But, I needed a Z for it to work. I’d brought down an L instead of the Z…jumbler solved!

    I’ve always thought the Statue of Liberty was an amazing gift from the French.. And I would have had no idea that the jumbler had historic roots yesterday. Unc, you and the guzy always enlighten me! Thank you.
