Answer:  BERING STRAIT

(Marvelous geography pun!  I loved it!  There were no new clue words today, but three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “nihys” before.  The answer letter layout was a great jumble.  I don’t think it gave anything away.  You needed to be both, familiar with: the idiom Getting your bearings straight, and the geography of western Alaska and eastern Russia.  I’m guessing that Jeff’s cartoon is based on the Discovery Channel show, “Deadliest Catch”.  I’ve never seen it, but I hear that it’s pretty exciting.  Lots of fun!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Famous remarks are very seldom quoted correctly.”   —   Simeon Strunsky

(Wow!  This was not an easy solve.  It took a while to get started, and then I thought that “remarks” was rewards!  And, as rewards kind of fell apart, I then considered regards.  I didn’t get “remarks” until I figured out “seldom”.  I usually like to save the E for last, but I knew I needed it, if I was going to have a good chance at deciphering the quote.  This is the first quote from Simeon Strunsky, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  So, clearly the author was no help.  It made for a great Cryptoquote!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
