To the Editor:

When I read about daily ferry commuter service to the mainland, I think of a quote by native Block Islander and life-long resident, Albion Dodge Slate. “They should run the boat once a week in the winter — and not at all in the summer!” 

Island life is unique. Block Island is not the mainland and the mainland is not Block Island. That is why we are here instead of there.
