I'm a Crucian and I read your articles everyday. I just read a letter from a reader in Virginia. He commented on the "problems" at the Cormorant Beach Club saying "I don't know if I want to go anymore. Is it that brutal there (St. Croix)?"
I live in Maryland and work in Virginia. Yesterday an 8-year-old boy was stabbed to death in front of his home, two people were found murdered in a house, a veterinarian and his wife were found murdered in their place of business. I could go on ad infinitum. And these are everyday occurrences! Is it that brutal there in St. Croix?
I raise my eyebrows and laugh!
