Letter: Obama’s unlawful orders

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

When we read about and see the crisis on our southern border, it should bring into focus the writings of noted liberal historian Arthur Schlesinger, who outlined the “extreme danger to liberty posed by lawless executive overreach.” He was writing at the time of Richard Nixon. In our time, his views are echoed by another liberal constitutional scholar at George Washington University, Jonathan Turley. When President Obama announced to Congress … 1

Letter: Questionable spin

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Israel bombs a neighborhood, kills children and it’s the Palestinians’ fault for not leaving their homes. What an Orwellian twist. Long live Hamas. JAMES SCHULER Weare … 1

Letter: The carbon solution

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I thank Walter Carlson for his clear explanation of global warming science (Monitor Forum, July 16). He told it like it is without mincing words. I wish he hadn’t left us with all the knowledge and no solutions. There is a superb solution: carbon fee and dividend. By putting a price on carbon so polluters pay for their contamination of a common inheritance … 1

Letter: Circus no fun for animals

Sunday, July 20, 2014

While the circus may seem amusing to some people, it is never fun for the animals that are being exploited. The two elephants in attendance at the Kelly Miller Circus that recently performed in Bristol and Hillsboro were Lisa, who is 49 years old, and Traci, who is … 1

Letter: Climate change wisdom

Sunday, July 20, 2014

After recently chastising the Monitor (Monitor letters, July 3) regarding a recent editorial, “Everybody has a church in the woods” (Monitor Opinion, July 1), I must complement the paper on following up with “Climate change for beginners” (Monitor Forum, July 13) and the ensuing letters generated by this … 1

Letter: ‘Monitor’ wrong on hate

Saturday, July 19, 2014

The editorial “A Powerful Incubator of Hate” (Monitor, July 15) states that people who dedicate their time to hatred “simply long to be understood, for their ideas to be embraced.” It appears that the editorial staff of the Monitor has embraced at least one idea of the hate … 2

Letter: What day is it again?

Saturday, July 19, 2014

I’ve shaken my head many times over spelling errors in the Monitor, but this error takes the cake: The front page on Tuesday, July 15, tries to tell us it’s actually Monday, July 15. Get a grip people. At least get the date right. JOAN JOOS Hopkinton … 1


Saturday, July 19, 2014

Help lead on climate change Many thanks for the “Climate change for beginners” article (Sunday Monitor, July 13). Humankind will have a much kinder, gentler future in coming years if we can overcome the misinformation, willful blindness and political payoffs that are contributing to our deer-in-the-headlights inaction on … 1

Letter: Vote with parks in mind

Saturday, July 19, 2014

We are lucky to have great state parks in New Hampshire. Recently, we canoed and picnicked at Kingston State Park. It’s always crowded, and it’s encouraging to see families and friends experience clean, wholesome activities and making memories that last a lifetime. We take experiences like these for … 2

Letter: Ardinger is a strong leader

Friday, July 18, 2014

I support Kass Ardinger to represent Concord, Hopkinton, Henniker and Warner as state senator. I know Kass as a caring, involved parent, a strong voice for women’s rights, a compassionate and skillful leader, and a woman who has the ability to bring disparate views together in consensus. As … 0

Letter: Feltes grasps big issues

Friday, July 18, 2014

I had the pleasure of hosting a house party for Dan Feltes for state Senate last Friday evening in Henniker. We had a great turnout of interested residents, and Dan’s remarks reminded me of two key reasons why I and so many others are inspired to support his … 1

Letter: Standing up for D.C.

Friday, July 18, 2014

The recent story about Travis Mitchell’s unsuccessful attempt to purchase alcohol at the Concord Food Coop caught our attention. Travis grew up in Bow with some of our children, and we know him to be an honest and responsible man. Mitchell’s purchase was denied because he presented a … 2

Letter: An inflammatory charge

Friday, July 18, 2014

I’ve always enjoyed Robert Azzi’s contributions to the Monitor, finding his comments about Islam illuminating and inspiring. Unfortunately, I am disheartened by Azzi’s article in the July 13 Sunday Monitor. Citing a column in the Jewish Daily Forward, Azzi repeats an accusation made by that column’s author that … 1
