We are fortunate to have Hllside Surgery Center in Lakes Region

To The Daily Sun,

Having spent time at the Hillside Surgery Center in Gilford recently, I wish to express my thanks and appreciation to the staff. No surgery is ever a pleasant experience, but the expertise and ability of the professionals at this center need to be recognized. My sincere thanks to Helen, Pat, Deb, Vicky, Kathy and Linda for their TLC above and beyond the call of duty.

We in the Lakes Region are fortunate to have such a facility in our midst. I also extend my gratitude to Dr. Shetty and his fine staff. Thank you all.

Any law that says a woman 'may not' is clearly unconstitutional

To The Daily Sun,

Some of your recent letter writers seem to have forgotten what they learned in high school civics class about the U.S. Constitution. They profess to be offended that a woman would dare to remove her shirt in public, but they will search the Constitution in vain for any right not to be offended. On the other hand, the right of free expression is rather prominent in the Constitution; it's right there in the First Amendment. It's difficult to imagine a clearer example of protected free expression than a woman protesting laws that apply to her, but not to a man. It's difficult to imagine a law that more clearly violates the Fourteenth Amendment's guarantee of equal protection under the law than one that prevents a woman from being shirtless where a man is allowed to be.

It's the Twenty-First Century, folks. Any law that says, "a woman may not..." is clearly unconstitutional. I support my female friends in their efforts to overturn such unjust laws. If you're offended, the remedy is to look away.
