Many a time I have wanted to stop talking and find out what I really believed.”   —   Walter Lippmann

(The man knew from B.S.!  Lippmann said that mass man functioned as a “bewildered herd” who must be governed by “a specialized class whose interests reach beyond the locality.” The élite class of intellectuals and experts were to be a machinery of knowledge to circumvent the primary defect of democracy, the impossible ideal of the “omnicompetent citizen”.  – Wikipedia   We only know what they want us to know, folks.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer: MAINESTAY

(This is a first class stinky pun!  I really liked it.  I’ve only been to Maine once, but I enjoyed it.  It was five years ago, and it was in Kennebunkport, celebrating my sister’s birthday.  She would go up there at least once a year.  I saw George Bush Sr.’s compound from across a strait of some kind.  It was right around the 4th of July, but it was very chilly during the evening fireworks.

All of today’s clue words are familiar old friends.  Although, all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I didn’t struggle with any of them.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  Nothing obvious there.  The state motto and the quotation marks around the answer slots were the big clue.

Great cartoon of the vacationing couple.  Lots of coastline in Maine.  They have a lot of bays and inlets and islands too.   It’s the largest state in New England, but just a moderate sized eastern state.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
