Let’s look at ourselves 


To the Editor:

We dodged a bullet, but the bullets are all around us — mental illness, and the possibility of violence.

Institutions, media, and the Vineyard’s boosters play a dangerous game of “come spend your money here on this Island that is a place where you can feel secure.” Basically playing on people’s insecurities.

This attitude is at best delusional, at worst negligent, magical thinking. Do we really care about our kids? I hope recent events are a wake-up call, and we all take a clear-eyed look at the Island.

  1. Nobody had ever heard of the Vineyard before the Clintons! Next thing you know, Martha’s Vineyard is featured on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”.
