Thank you for publishing the excellent, beautiful, full length article by Sindiso Mnisi Weeks (Monitor Forum, April 16). That is what newspapers are for: to inform and educate. That also sells newspapers. SELDEN R. STRONG Franklin … 0

Letter: It’s time to stop killing

Friday, April 18, 2014

What’s wrong with capital punishment to begin with is that it is humans making the decision to kill another human. The punishment, once completed, is irrevocable. Humans are prone to error, to misjudgment, to prejudice. The justice system itself is not perfect. Death row inmates have been exonerated with new evidence. There is enough killing in the world. End capital punishment for good. … 1

Letter: Reward for missing data

Friday, April 18, 2014

I am writing to see if I can get any help retrieving the data from the computer that I lost on April 2. I inadvertently drove out of my driveway on Sanborn Road in Concord with my black Macbook on the trunk of my black Miata. I don’t know where it fell off, but it was somewhere between there and Mountain, Sewall’s Falls, … 0

Letter: Marijuana law lacking

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I was reading the story about the proposed changes to New Hampshire’s medical marijuana law, and it made me think that these things should have been hashed out before the law was passed. I’m not for the recreational use of pot but strongly believe it can help those … 2

Letter: Thwarting Boehner

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Mr. President, how about an executive order to restore the emergency unemployment extension? If John Boehner can kill a bill on purpose, try this as a solution. MALCOLM GRAHAM ROGERS Concord … 1

Letter: Follow the money

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

We have a new big money player in New Hampshire: His name is Peter T. Paul. He just set up a Super PAC and planted half a million in it with the intent to get his “friend” Dan Innis elected to Congress. Big money and politics is now … 1

Letter: Brown doesn’t know N.H.

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

I find myself wondering how gullible Scott Brown thinks the electorate of New Hampshire is. Brown has suddenly discovered our lovely state, moved into his home in Rye, and declared his intention of running for senator, all the while reminiscing about his childhood memories of fishing with his … 1

Letter: Kuster alternatives

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster’s unabashed support for Obamacare is particularly troubling here in Concord where our own local hospital is not part of the network of the Obamacare exchange’s only insurance plan. So much for being able to keep your doctor. The reality of “you can keep your … 1

Letter: Lessons from Lincoln

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

That was quite a nice story about Abraham Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address (Sunday Monitor, April 13). Let’s remember and teach that Lincoln also said other things that are equally as important and timely with regard to our government and our future. Consider Lincoln’s speech delivered in 1838: … 0

Letter: The Russian sense of humor

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

OMG! I just now learned that the Obama administration is sending Vice President Joe “The Wordsmith” Biden to Russia as a U.S. emissary! Have I misread the Russians all of these years by never crediting them with a sense of humor? Was I wrong? Are the Russians, perhaps, … 0

Letter: The value of Concord Express

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

We have an opportunity to make improvements in both the regional economy and the environment. While the improvements may be small, the opportunity should not be squandered. The Concord Express has been running for some months now but is in danger of being discontinued (“Report: Continue Bus Service,” … 0

Letter: Desperate Republicans

Monday, April 14, 2014

Republican Scott Brown took up residency this past December and four months later announces he is running for Jeanne Shaheen’s U.S. Senate seat. It’s one thing to have lived in New Hampshire for a number of years and then run for office, but to do so after only … 0

Letter: Carpetbagger Senate candidate

Monday, April 14, 2014

The Portsmouth Naval Shipyard is located in Kittery Maine. Anyone claiming to be born there was not born in New Hampshire. Let’s vote New Hampshire. WITMER JONES Concord … 4
