KCT Thought of the Week, September 9, 2011

"Come September, the tourists that have clogged the streets of every village from Kittery to Bar Harbor will head home, taking with them their car alarms and cell phones and digital cameras and hit-tech baby strollers and hip-hop CDs.  The sleek sailing vessels will tack away, their propellers snagging lobster pots in their hasty departure, returning our harbors to the lumbering, boxy fishing boats and the men who work the water year-round."    Richard Russo  "Autumn"  "A Place Called Maine"
