Newcomers Changing Marfa for the Worst

RECEIVED Thu., Jan. 12, 2006

Dear Editor,
    Bravo Dan Keane! Someone finally mentions the people that have been in Marfa for generations and how the influx of new "residents" is impacting their lives [“To Marfa, on a Tuesday in December,” the Arts, Dec. 23]. I am so tired of seeing articles in Texas Monthly and other publications that only focus on what the artists have done for the town. The day will come when they have changed the town so much that the characteristics that drew them won't exist anymore.
