Mantle Of Shame

Local pilots and their out-of-town hired sycophants are cloaked in a heavy mantle of shame this week with two actions shining a bright light on their disregard for our community.

First, the attempt to outnumber residents at East Hampton Town’s public discussions on the future of KHTO with lobbyists from the National Business Aviation Association, the shameless local user alliance and the local aviation association.

The latter then held a “Plane Fun” event at KHTO — on September 11, a date that annually brings recall only of painful memories and still-vivid images of horror for many of us who lost family members, friends, co-workers or neighbors on that unforgettable day.

Shame on them.
