I am truly saddened to hear of destruction at Weeks Woods

To The Daily Sun,

I would like to thank the two ladies who wrote in about the destruction that has taken place at Weeks Woods. I am truly saddened by this fact for nature's loss and ours. I had no idea this was happening and agree, shame on the Society (for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests).

I have only been there a few times, sadly I wish it was more. But the times I went there in fall, and a few in winter, it was simply beautiful. I will now have to go and see this "lack of respect" for myself, and I am sure I will be offended by what I will see.

How sad, thoughtless, and sneaky not to say anything to the locals who live here and the many people who enjoy the woods and paths. I hope, since this has been brought to all of our attention now, there will be an explanation, repairs to the damage, an apology and a promise not to do this in the future.

And I hope the Sun will do a follow up on this story.

Again, thank you for sharing this ladies, truly.

We need the thoughts of the left out in the open for all to see

To The Daily Sun,

I was pleased to read that another individual, Michael Brooker, was outraged over the insensitivity to human life as displayed by the rude, crude and utterly tasteless letter by our favorite leftist, James Veverka. Yes, you are right Michael in pointing out that Jimmy V plays fast and loose with the truth and generally blasts away at anyone who disagrees with him, using all manner of derogatory remarks. Yes, to the "V-man," all those who identify with conservative values are indeed in a basket full of barbarians and reprobates. That is why most of us have stopped responding to his corrosive and divisive letters.

Hillary Clinton has of course claimed that millions of conservative followers of the Republican nominee are nothing more than a "basket of deplorables," and just not redeemable. Now, some may find my next comment a little shocking, but here goes. I think it is absolutely fantastic that the Hillary Clintons and James Veverkas of the world have decided that they no longer have to keep their opinions to themselves regarding those who dare to disagree with them. This marvelous transparency allows readers to see just how horribly patronizing those on the left really are.

The left's absolute disdain for the right colors everything they do with dripping condescension, and yet they seem oblivious to how nasty and low-brow they are when they put down anyone who dares to disagree with them. They claim they want to engage in difficult and constructive conversations about the issues of the day. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Some on the right have wondered why the editors of the Daily Sun do not censor their hateful letters. I could not disagree more. We need to have the thoughts and opinions of the left out in the open for all to see. That is the best way for those on the right to combat the socialist disease that is spread by the left. A disease that appears to have affected their mental acuity to the point where they have convinced themselves that the political science is settled and progressive socialism is the ultimately and only answer to society's ills, despite no evidence it has ever worked for the benefit of mankind.

Finally, does anyone need more proof as to the corrupt and complicit media that no longer acts in search of the truth to inform the masses, then what we witnessed this past Sunday, Sept. 11? A citizen with a cell phone had to reveal what the mainstream media has been desperately trying to hide from us, which is the ill health of our Democratic nominee. So very sad to see, and yet that is more revealing transparency from the left which allows us all to begin to understand how far the mainstream media has fallen from literary grace.
