The people of LI are agains the bridge because they like the North Shore beaches and all that goes with having a North shore. I remember when I was in my teens, many years ago, a very silly politician who was championing building a bridge to CT campaigned at Stehli (sp?) beach. The fool didn't realize that had he his way, we would all be enjoying the on ramp for his bridge!<quoted text>
The people of Long Island are against the bridge b/c they are stupid. They think that by not doing it it keeps the Island secluded. Well hello. Also, we should take the politicians on the island and put them on one bridge and and hope they all drown in the water. Get rid of them they are all crooks.
Yes it would be convenient but the open land and beach access is much more important.
