To The Daily Sun,

To the Dennis Peterson from Andover Mass, who says Laconia is a joke, and that should be leveled:

If you hate it so much then why do you come up here? Laconia has its problems but there’s a lot of things to like about it. I grew up here, lived here all my life, I wouldn’t really want to move anywhere else. I hate how people like to dis a certain area or city but they don’t do anything to help the situation.

I think Laconia is a pretty good place to live. You have a little bit of everything here. The weather is pretty moderate, the crime rate is relatively low compared to other areas. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live anywhere in Massachusetts.

I’m sorry that you only see the negative in Laconia. I used to think kind of like you do, then realized I live in a pretty good area and I am grateful. There’s a lot of great things about this city and area. By the way, plenty of people come up here. I’m not sure where you get your information. As I said, if you don’t like it here then stay out.

Common Sense

google this term "Narcissism of small differences" for an interesting take on why the close neighbor is always viewed as poisonous.

Very interesting. I always thought spellchecker, and the V twins had something more in common with each other beside their lefty ideas. Now we know where the attitude comes from. If I had my way we would put up a wall on the Mass border.


Dee, you just did the same thing as that awful person from North Andover by dissing Massachusetts. Massachusetts is a wonderful state. It has the best schools in the country. And if it was a nation, it would rank 6th in the world for science. Ninth overall. It also scores #1 in SAT scores. Massachusetts also has wonderful beaches and the cultural life is far superior to anything in NH. It has beautiful scenery like the Berkshires. Cape Cod is heavenly. Massachusetts people also support our economy. There are millions of visitors from Massachusetts every year to our gorgeous lakes and mountains. We have a room and meals tax because of the people who love our state and clog the highways every Friday to come here for swimming, golfing, camping, hiking, skiing and the peaceful nature of our beautiful state. And Booze! You are as bad as the guy you criticized. You are a hypocrite.


Lived in Mass for many years and let me say it’s not what all you NH elites complain about. Just like you we have good and bad areas and people as well. I miss it, not the taxes, but I miss Boston, the North End, China Town, the Wang, the Art Museums and MORE! This guy is wrong and out of line. Andover has its share of issues, they just don’t ‘air’ them publicly.
