Saw Michael pretty regularly at the Minnewaska Distance Swimmers beach. Always there on that scooter. Always so kind and gentle, but I knew about his anger toward the Preserve. It's a shame the rhetoric around the property issues became so heated over the past few years. I think that really played into Mike's instability.
There's got to be a better solution (mental health-wise), than waiting until someone like this goes off the deep end, and they go to fetch him with a robot.
Maybe moving forward, people with think of Mike before they advocate extreme measures. You really don't know who's listening.
