To the Daily Sun;
Wow, lookee here at the letter from Eric T. Rottenecker in Friday's, Aug. 19 Laconia Sun. He sure doesn't mince words. He apparently doesn't care for Senator Jeannie Forrester's idea to curb the smuggling of illegal drugs into New Hampshire which has reached epidemic proportions.
He first equates legal medicinal drugs, i.e. those prescribed by doctors and sold legally by Rite Aid and other drug chains, with those sneaked across our borders. He then takes umbrage with the notion that utilizing the National Guard to safeguard New Hampshire citizens is "absurd and insane." Correct me if I am wrong, but I thought that was was the mission of the New Hampshire National Guard.
He ends with the statement that he "has much more realistic candidates to choose from." But, instead of him being severely critical of someone else's idea, it sounds like as if he does not really care about a problem affecting many of our New Hampshire neighbors.
Mr. Rottenecker, wouldn't it be better to offer your own well thought-out plan. Just saying that you have more "realistic candidates" to vote for, smacks of pure politics. Tell me about one of your "realistic" candidate's better plan to alleviate a serious problem. Tell me you really want to do something about the illegal drug problem, just don't tell me you just don't want to have Senator Forrester as governor. At least she is trying to do something about a very grave problem.
