Tradition Versus Change

Maddie's Sail Loft, a Marblehead, Massachusetts institution, sounds like the sort of place where I would like to hoist a few. Alas, Maddie's is no more, and the reasons why come down to divides that probably reflect those taking place in lots of places in the United States where new wealth is supplanting working-class locals: newcomers versus locals, outsiders versus townies, working class versus the affluent, old economy versus new, tradition versus change.
