Beach access is all


To the Editor:

I enjoyed last week’s Editorial in The Times in favor of cable access for Chappaquiddick residents. It made the important point, that “saying no just because you can is not admirable, rather it is bullying.” It also implored Brian Roberts, Comcast chief from West Tisbury, to act “neighborly and reasonable.” The editor should continue this train of thought and apply it to everyone who lives in West Tisbury. West Tisbury denies public walk-on access to Lambert’s Cove Beach, a town park. Surely there is more of a right for the public to access public areas than there is for having cable from a private company.

Silence is my validation. End beach apartheid.
