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must contain the author's name, hometown (state as well, if not in New Hampshire) and phone number, but the number will not be published.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. Editors reserve the right to edit letters for spelling, grammar, punctuation, excessive length and unsuitable content.

 

I admit it, Mr. Vervaeke elicited a knee-jerk response from me

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I feel that I must write an addendum to my letter of last week.

The Sun’s headline for Elle Cathcart’s letter (Feb. 10) was right on the money. Mr. Vervaeke’s letter elicited a knee-jerk response from me and I ran full-speed ahead. Ms Cathcart did a much better job with her letter than I did.

Some members of my synagogue felt that I was supporting Mr. Murdough’s outlook rather than critiquing Mr. Vervaeke’s letter. May I offer my apologies to those that I may have offended.

While I in no way support Mr. Murdough’s stated opinions, I do support his right to speak. It is my hope that people would either ignore his stated intolerance or speak out against it using facts and opinion, without resorting to ad hominem attacks.
