Letter: Reaching the tipping point

To the Editor: As reported by The Washington Post’s “The Fact Checker,” President Trump has made over 10,000 false or misleading claims since taking office. Has Trump finally achieved Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Tipping Point” where these so-called “10,000 lies” now become facts to be believed? These types of political lies are not new. In 1933, Joseph Geobbels, Propaganda Minister, gave … read more

Letter: Tolls beat borrowing

To the Editor: This month, state legislators must decide how to fund maintenance and upgrades to our transportation infrastructure, for which the DoT says it needs $2 billion a year—up from the $1.2 billion that our bare-bones maintenance approach costs now.

Letter: Sweeping field fire under the rug highlights disintegration of values

To the Editor: In two short weeks, we went from prosecuting this heinous crime to sweeping it under the rug. Before the gasoline had even dried, we were told the cost of the cleanup would be $50,000, no town employees were involved, it did not look like student vandalism, and our police department was going to pursue every lead to … read more
