Letter Submission

To submit a letter to the editor, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Letters must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published. We do not run anonymous letters. Local issues get priority, as do local writers. We encourage writers to keep letters to no more than 400 words, but will accept longer letters to be run on a space-available basis. Letters may be edited for spelling, grammar, punctuation and legal concerns.


Doing good depends on the end result, not on original intention

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

George Maloof wants points for "good intentions." Really, I do believe he he wants to do good but I'll give no points for intentions when he says, "the ends justifies the means" — they do not. If points were given for good intentions then the Salem witch trials get points. Even the old KKK believed in their hearts and minds they were doing good. They were not. Neither example, in spite of good intentions, were good.

Doing good depends on the effect, not the intention, and George's side in this debate has not been doing good in spite of intentions.
