W hen I heard recently that the Discovery Channel is coming to the West Tisbury Dumptique to shoot a series about the famous giant sword maker of Martha’s Vineyard, I was filled with remorse and fear on multiple levels.

What if I forget about the filming and drive by in the background with my pickup truck  embarrassingly full of recycling?
