Just read your “funky” editorial, and really enjoyed it, especially the first three paragraphs. (Editorial, “Save our ‘Funky’ Town,” Island Sand Paper; September 20, 2019)
We’ve been coming to FMB since 1988, and when asked “why there?”, we try to explain. Typically we wind up calling FMB “tacky old Florida” in an attempt to describe the difference between it and someplace like “(horrors!) Naples.”
From now on I think we’ll refer those questioners to your editorial. It’s amazing how well you have described the place that has become our winter home-away-from-home.
Keep up the good work.
