The Martha’s Vineyard Times has been running a summer series on various individuals that make the island their home in the summer. It is titled “Summer People“. To follow is a Letter to the Editor I sent upon reading the 4th in the series. It seems to have struck a chord with a lot of people. I thought therefore that it might be worth putting it here in my blog in the hopes of getting other people’s impression of the issue I had raised and the perception that I feel it had left.
“Summer People, a weekly MVTIMES series, whose goal is to introduce readers to their summer neighbors, some of them prominent and extraordinarily accomplished,some whose lives are less exalted, all of them Islanders in their own ways. How do they describe their connections to the Vineyard and their seasonal Island neighbors? How do they describe their off-Island lives?”
