It's the economy, stupid!

And thank you, James Carville!

Beth's Seafood Market on Parlato Drive

I wasn't there for the Great Depression, but it was never that far away during my early school years.

Many people went as far as they could, then just simply walked away from their homes and their farms, and left them to the banks and the winds of the Great Plains.

(One of the great American novels, John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath," came from this experience.)

I thought of that when I saw the listing on-line Saturday morning.

That's a heart-break... for Beth and the Bennetts both, and a bad thing for all of Westhampton Beach.

I clicked on the "listing on line" for the first time here and was quite surprised to see it since we didn't know anything about it having been listed. The pictures that accompany the listing are beautiful. We have new pictures that reveal what it looks like today. The contrast of what is left is striking. Perhaps you would like to see them here?

If you would like to share, I'll take a look at them.
