Letter: A series of missteps

Monday, July 28, 2014

Market Basket’s implosion? Implosion is when an organization is destroyed by things that are happening within it.

Letter: A missed opportunity

Monday, July 21, 2014

I want to express my disappointment at the Monitor’s lack of coverage of the beautiful concert presented in the parking garage by the New Hampshire Master Chorale on June 21. The Bernstein Mass was exciting, the acoustics phenomenal and there was a good and appreciative audience. A creative … 0

Tea Partyer Ann Kolifrath lets us know us how angry she is about a Monitor cartoon that failed to coincide with her views (Monitor letters, July 16). Given our freedom of the press, I’m sure there are periodicals whose cartoons are acceptable to her, however offensive to others. … 1

Letter: Circus no fun for animals

Sunday, July 20, 2014
