On the other hand …


To the Editor:

I read with interest Doug Cabral’s column, At Large, in the June 14 Martha’s Vineyard Times. The misconception that a comment page is for readers to air their personal grievances is one I agree with wholeheartedly.

To even suggest that this page should be obliterated defeats the purpose of a local newspaper. This is the page that allows freedom of speech. This is the first page I turn to whilst on vacation on your beautiful Island. It is of interest to all and sundry.

I am taking your paper back to St. Andrews, where I hope to bring this article to the attention of my local paper. I doubt they will have the nerve to publish such a provocative feature.This is something that had to be said.

Well done, Doug. Wishing you all the best with your very interesting and informative paper.
