Ah yes how the few Pro- Northern Pass people love their Kool-Aid.
1.From the article above and the Northern Pass website... "The project has agreed to bury 8 miles of line in the northern section of the route."
Agreed with who? And the answer is no one. In the particular area that they are so willing to bury 8 miles of their line, it isn't to appease anyone's concerns except the Northern Pass's. Their route is completely blocked there by unwilling landowners so they HOPE they can be granted access through by going underground. Stay tuned for that wrestling match.
2. What does anybody really believe the majority of young people of NH think of the possibility of the siting of the Northern Pass as currently proposed considering it's promise of temporary jobs and lower electrical rates that might achieve a jaw dropping $3.00 savings per month?
Come on, they must be "stoked"! For anyone who might not know, stoked = exhilarated.

Better mix up another batch of Kool-Aid. ...(full comment)
Another danger of straight ticket voting is that you might unknowingly vote for a candidate whose views are diametrically opposed to your own.

Larry, how did you guess? I haven't been to P-town in years - too far to travel with my health limitations - but I still have many fond memories. And as for Ogunquit, I go as often as I can.There are some very special people that I've come to know there who make me feel like family. Everytime I'm there, I go to the same romantic places and do the same wonderful things. I can't tell you how beneficial Ogunquit has been for my heart. I really feel safe in Ogunquit. If you haven't tried it, you really should. Sometimes the things you think you fear turn out to be the most pleasurable things of all. Open yourself up to new experiences, Larry. They'll turn your little scowl into a big smile. (c; ...(full comment)
Ducklady, guess he doesn't like "tea baggers" but since the original Tea party old ladies used to wear hats with tea bags on them they called themselves that. Of course when the Koch brothers took over the Tea Party someone clued them in to the name. Though the oldies were still clueless on how the government runs their meidicare that they want them to keep their hands off. If this makes any sense. ...(full comment)
