To the Editor:
For those who love prose, the absence of Doug Cabral’s writings in the Martha’s Vineyard Times is a terrific loss. Whether he wrote of dogs or dogma, he had perfect pitch. Like our singer/songwriter James Taylor, whose recitation of the ABCs could melt your heart, Mr. Cabral is our literary minstrel. You do not have to agree with a great writer; you only need to wrangle with his mind.
