To the Editor:
I have often fulminated against the MVTimes’ editorial position on Massachusetts’ alternative energy policies and other issues, so I was surprised and impressed to find myself applauding the August 8 Editorial [The Vineyard's better August angels]. The editorial leads us away from hyper partisan politics and toward some much neglected national values, in this case: hospitality. There are values that divide us and values that unite us. I’m grateful for a brief focus on the latter. Thank you.
