Abstract/ Summary

Everyone knows that Maine is Vacationland and the way life should be (full of lobsters and loons), but we also have plenty of another commodity- hate. If you are not a member of a group traditionally persecuted, then you have nothing to worry about, right? Hate in Maine takes on many faces and is felt by many group and many people. Charlie Howard's name comes to mind. This summer, concerned Maine people gathered to honor his memory and not let his death be in vain. Howard was thrown to his death off a bridge by three teenagers in the city of Bangor ten years ago. He reportedly could not swim, suffered an acute asthma attack, then drowned.
