Letter: Time’s up

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Since it is almost three weeks since the election, all of the political signage should have been removed. I am referring specifically to the Garcia, Guay and Burns signs that are littering Exit 1 in Bow and elsewhere around town. These signs are on the state and town right of way, not private property. There may be others out there, but these are the ones I see daily. HELAINE KANEGSBERG …

Letter: The wrong headline

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

It’s been a while, but I see that the writer of the sub headline for an article who doesn’t read the article is back working at the Monitor. The latest example of his or her talent is on page A6 of the Monday, Nov. 24, edition describing an article by Michael Birnbaum from the Washington Post. The first sentence of the second paragraph …

Letter: Local food, locals sources

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

This is in response to the brewing opinions in regard to the Fournier Foods processing plant. It seems to me after observing the process for some time that some of us take a prejudicial view and overlook the contribution that growth makes to our communities. I believe that processing plants bring us closer to local food from local sources. We should begin to …

Well, I just reread my comment and realized it's pretty much what John_V_Kjellman wrote, albeit in slightly different words. ...(full comment)

Editorial: Kansas has a few lessons for New Hampshire

Letter: A single-payer solution

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

‘Let the Health Shopping Begin” (Monitor front page, Nov. 15) sounds like an ad for a pre-Thanksgiving sale. Whatever choice individuals make, there is one clear winner in the health market and that’s the health insurance industry. While we argue over the pros and cons of the Affordable …

Letter: Thanks and congratulations

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

I would like to thank the voters of Loudon and Canterbury for their support during the recent election for state representative, which initially ended in a tie and which George Saunderson won after a special recount. It was a great experience to get to know so many folks …

Letter: Freeloaders

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

According to the front page of the Nov. 8 Monitor, Carol and Dan McGuire “became two of the first 50 people to follow through on the Free State Project Pledge when they moved to New Hampshire.” To quote Dan McGuire, the “Free State Project exists only outside New …

Letter: Time to pull together

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

I for one am glad this latest election season is over. I became so tired of all the political mudslinging and negative ads that had very negligible credibility. I think every member of Congress and the administration should be required to read Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends …

Letter: Failure of leadership

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Again, I write to let the people of this great country know that our president is negligent in his failure to act. How many more lives are we going to let be ended by the Islamic State terrorists? It is time to act now; no more waiting. The …

Letter: Past lessons

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

I truly hope the state’s legislative representatives are familiar with George Santayana’s quote, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” The upcoming vote for selecting the speaker of the House could result in “Billy the Bully” O’Brien’s return to his dictatorship of the House. …

Letter: Be amused

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

I am an octogenarian who finds himself in a pickle quite often. I thoroughly enjoy the comedy in your Pickles. I feel sorry for people who cannot laugh at themselves. Life is too short not to enjoy the humor around us. FRED LANGEVIN Jr. Concord …

Letter: You have to laugh

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

I’m two weeks shy of my 79th birthday and the first thing I read is Pickles. Pingree needs to get a life. If one cannot laugh at one’s self, then one shouldn’t laugh at all. The cartoonist must have either paid very close attention to his parents aging …

Letter: Overreaction

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Okay, people like Pickles – even an entire week devoted to the wife having misplaced a whole chicken that she had cooked. I got tired of the strip soon after it appeared, and when that week about the missing chicken began, I wrote to the Monitor (Letters, Nov. …

Letter: A sad election story

Monday, November 17, 2014

I recently heard the numbers of people who voted in this last election. I think that it was around 40 percent. I have to wonder what the other 60 percent of the so-called voters were doing. Some probably would say that their vote does not count, so why …
