A cry for help

To the Editor:To quote former President Reagan, “There you go again.” Once again you wrote another Editorial where you go on about community and how generous Islanders are. You even write “Islanders don’t say no.” As I have often pointed out to you, West Tisbury’s exclusive beach policies at Lambert’s Cove are the antithesis of community, yet you still continue with your false narrative that the Island is a neighborly place.

So I want to offer you a solution. Anytime you write an Editorial where you mention the words community or neighbor, you should put an asterisk next to it. Then on the bottom of the Editorial, next to another asterisk, you can write, “This excludes the people of West Tisbury.” This way I won’t have to go through the trouble of correcting you, and you can continue writing Editorials that blatantly ignore all of my letters, even though they are addressed to you. It’s a “win-win” solution for us.

I won’t close with “end beach apartheid,” because I want to mention again that the movie theaters in Oak Bluffs are a disgrace and an embarrassment.
