Local, white-male resident of Matha's Vineyard, MA, describing his
response to seeing from land a fire on a ferry:

"I alerted the authorities, just in case _it was_ more problems on the
boat than we thought."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
