What kind of town is it?

To the Editor:

First off, why does an Oak Bluffs restaurant with financial difficulties get probing coverage in your paper and a restaurant in Edgartown in a similar situation doesn’t get a word?

The next issue is your recent Editorial. Here is the closing quote: “The view here remains that allowing limited beer and wine sales, according to rules carefully tailored by the selectmen to fit the kind of town West Tisbury is, will be a convenience to town residents, an enhancement to town visitors, a modest boost for town businesses and other important organizations, all without changing West Tisbury significantly, except perhaps for the better.”

My question for anyone is, what kind of town is West Tisbury? I have personally argued in this forum that it is a selfish town because it denies public walk-on access to Lambert’s Cove Beach, a town park. I believe allowing such access will be an enhancement to town visitors, a modest boost for town businesses and other important organizations, all without changing West Tisbury significantly, except perhaps for the better.

Silence is my validation. End beach apartheid.
