Ridiculous or not


To the Editor:

A few thoughts. First, there were two separate single-driver accidents in under two weeks on Island. I would guess that they were texting and driving. Don’t worry if you text and drive though. I’m sure you’re really good at it and they just weren’t being careful.

Next I would just like to say what an amazing addition the new fishing pier is to the town of Oak Bluffs and the whole Island.

Lastly, I would like to address this comment in last week’s Times from Ben Hall Jr. regarding his families two rundown movie theaters in Oak Bluffs (June 12, “Oak Bluffs officials bedeviled by theater eyesores”).  He said, “These buildings are significant economic assets and it is ridiculous to even suggest that the maintenance and repair of such buildings are being ignored by the owners.” I hope, for his sake, he means it’s ridiculous to even suggest that because it’s already a foregone conclusion to anyone with common sense that his family does neglect the maintenance of their buildings.
