Letter: Don’t judge others by license plates

Posted

To the editor of THE EAGLE:

I am responding to August 11 letter, "We’re picking up some bad habits.")

I am a marginal "native/ tourist." I spend about 3/4 of my time in New Jersey (in a New York City suburb) and 1/4 of my time in Stockbridge. I have been a Stockbridge homeowner since 1980. I first worked at Camp Lenox in Otis at 17 and subsequently became a Berkshires regular before I was able to be a homeowner.

It has indeed changed here, for better and for worse. I had a similar reaction when I was cut off as I tried to take a parking space in Great Barrington. But that car had a Massachusetts plate and the driver felt entitled to cut me off. When I questioned him afterward (politely), he simply replied, "I’m a native," then turned his back on me and walked away.

Let’s try not judge people by their license plates.
