Abstract

Editorial calling for a stronger political will among islanders. On Maine's islands, rusticators and marine enthusiasts are being replaced by upwardly mobile middle-aged professionals, whose frenetic habits do not allow the mental "calming of the waters" necessary for them to meld into island life. Urban fixtures like absentee landlords, chartered jets, and telecommunications threaten island traditions as well.
