Right--pretty much all on the coast. What is it with the ocean and clear thought? I think I just answered my own question.

This is really interesting! More questioins: Do broad minded people love the sea? Does contact with tourists broaden the mind? Do people who have enough money to live by the coast have broader experience of people? Have those hippie socialists from Massachusetts infiltrated coastal Maine? Whatever it is, let's hope it spreads!
