    You can take back that 'cretin' and the red label.

    We are a hotbed of artists/craftspeople, retirees and liberals - this whole area is bluer than blue and I bet most other 'gateway' communities are, too.

     I just spoke to a low level park worker who is unhappily idle, can't leave and go elsewhere because she is under contract for the season and trying not to spend money while she is not earning any.

     Motels and hotels are talking about closing a month early if this goes on much longer.

     Cruise ships are not coming into Bar Harbor because of this.

     The park is closed because they can't rescue folks that fall off the rocks ( something that happens alot ! )

     We live in a beautiful place. It stays beautiful because it is a national park. We pay for living in a beautiful place by sharing it with visitors.

     All this will impact ordinary working folk soonest and deepest. Your lack of kindness and judgementalism is nasty.
