It is small, and its residents are poor, but Central Falls has always maintained a unique identity and its people have persevered with the stubborn, defiant pride of the underdog. That demands respect.
Central Falls should not be abolished.
Central Falls should not become another neighborhood of Pawtucket.
Central Falls should not be split up among its neighbors like a family of orphaned children.
Central Falls should be saved.
With all due respect to Mark Pfeiffer, the state receiver, it should not be devoured by its bigger and only slightly less poor neighbor, Pawtucket.
