    That stat about a fifth of Mainers speaking French at home only applies to the northern chunk of the state. Census stats cited by Wikipedia says that in the state overall it's 5 percent.

    That's still substantial, and a quarter of Mainers claim French or French Canadian descent -- including the Mainer half of my family. But it's not like you roll into a bar in Lewiston and hear people speaking French.
