Abstract

Editorial. People who travel the world often say that no coastline can match that of Maine, yet few mainland Mainers seem to care for the state's islands. A large majority of Maine residents have never been to a coastal island unless it was connected to shore by a bridge. Mainlanders group islanders into two categories: quaint but unrealistic types who ignore greater economic opportunities on shore but expect public transportation, housing, and education subsidies; and an out-of-state summer elite. Without local leadership, Maine islands will be homogenized, like Martha's Vineyard.
