Letter: A beautiful article

Friday, April 18, 2014

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: Keep anti-adultery law on the books

Letter: Principal over politics

Monday, April 14, 2014

I urge everyone reading this to call their state senator and urge them to support repeal of the death penalty in New Hampshire. Fifty years ago President Lyndon Johnson pushed for and achieved passage of the Civil Rights Act against the advice of those in his own party … 0

Letter: New Hampshire can do better

Monday, April 14, 2014

To kill someone to show that killing is wrong makes no sense to me. Two wrongs don’t make a right. The death penalty is wrong. It perpetuates the cycle of violence. According to Amnesty International, the majority of public executions now take place in just seven nations: Iran, … 1

Letter: Stay informed, Bradford

Monday, April 14, 2014

Bradford residents: Do you know that this year’s town meeting cost the town $2,000 more than regular town meetings in the past? There was no money in the budget to cover the cost. Our town budget has a $20,000 shortfall. Where is the money coming from to take … 0

Letter: For bears, misery and frustration

Monday, April 14, 2014

I am writing concerning the photo “A Piper and a Cub,” which appeared in the March 13 Monitor. Dancing bears are forced to live their lives in frustration and misery. To train them to dance, cruel and inhumane methods are used to break their naturally dominant personality. It … 1

Letter: Show some respect

Monday, April 14, 2014

To the individual who carelessly disposed of his or her cigarette on the beautiful hiking trails surrounding the Audubon Center: I support your right to engage in bad habits, but please be a little more considerate of others when you are done with your cigarette. The butt was … 0

Letter: She’s lucky to have the Affordable Care Act

Monday, April 14, 2014

A friend’s young daughter has been diagnosed with a rare disease that will require extensive medical treatment throughout her life. This very brave toddler has made it through extensive tests and frequent difficult medical treatments that would have overwhelmed many an adult. She is supported by a loving … 0

Letter: From bad to worse

Monday, April 14, 2014

The insanity of the Republicans has been reaching fever pitches. Logic and reason are replaced with slime tactics. Let’s take Benghazi, for example, the witch hunt where millions have been spent investigating and searching purely for the sake of casting an ominous suspicion over the Obama administration. Yes, … 0

Letter: What’s absurd?

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Sen. Kelly Ayotte is stirring up fear and misconceptions with her inaccurate portrayal of the effect of a death penalty appeal on Michael Addison’s sentencing (“Ayotte: Ignoring Addison ‘absurd’,” Monitor front page, April 10). The repeal would not apply to Addison’s case but to future cases and would … 0

Letter: We must demand leadership on climate change

Sunday, April 13, 2014

Katy Burns’s column, “A moving mass of deadly mud, then silence” (Sunday Monitor Forum, March 30), tells of the horrible mudslide that wiped out the tiny community of Oso, Wash., recently. At the end, she tells of the many slide warnings that had been issued in the past … 27

Letter: Keep anti-adultery law on the books

Sunday, April 13, 2014

House Bill 1125 is currently before the New Hampshire Senate. If passed, it would repeal the crime of adultery. A recent Monitor editorial (“Repeal outdated state adultery law,” Feb. 18) encouraged passage of this bill. I disagree. Adultery should remain a crime. The arguments against it should be … 12
