"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

In the Mashpee Enterprise, the new Mashpee leadership tries a new spin on jurisdiction, deeds, and Indian Districts.

Carver Chick reverses the spin.

Are the new bosses the same as the old bosses minus the handcuffs and restraining orders?
