Quote of the Day
"The manner in which we were treated was unprofessional, dangerous, and downright inhumane… Those of us who stayed overnight in the airport were treated like disaster victims, not paying customers."
— JetBlue customer Dakota Deady on a recent cancellation leaving dozens of passengers stranded at Martha’s Vineyard Airport.

Hot Topic Comment
"The lift decks were touted in the design for offering more car space on the ferry, and I don’t understand why those spaces are not always on offer for reservations on the boat. There have been many instances, at all times of the year, that reservations were full, but the lift decks were not in use, or only used for standby travelers, and usually only one at a time. It’s hard enough to get on and off the Island, not using all available spaces seems just plain wasteful, I think."
— Christine Napoliton comments on the SSA’s travel complications

Hot Topic Letter
Suzanne Kuffler writes to us in response to the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital’s support of the 5:30 Woods Hole ferry: "If M.V. Hospital has concern for people on the Vineyard, why not have equal concern for the people along the mainland freight and transportation corridor? Taking a position against the consequences of the 5:30 am ferry out of Woods Hole makes sense. There is a lot of literature available about both the long-term and even short-term impact of sleep deprivation. Sleep deprivation is not a small matter."
Today: There’s a lot to do this summer. A lot. This one is important. Union Chapel hosts civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump in Conversation with Filmmaker Lisa Cortés. Free. 6 pm. –Connie Berry
