Letters

Editor, Daily News, Constance Pike is a psychotherapist and her husband Mike Magee is a school teacher, but the two of them seem to have another area of expertise, namely writing letters to the editor criticizing me. In his letter, many months ago, Magee called me a “phony,” but once was not...
Editor, Daily News I have enjoyed many of Allen Young’s recent columns, especially the last one about Puerto Rico, which included ways in which we could meaningfully contribute to help alleviate its current devastation and desperation. However, I cannot agree with Allen’s unwillingness to hold...
Editor, Daily News It was heartening to see, in the past couple of issues of the Athol Daily News, that people in this community are rallying around the American citizens in Puerto Rico that are struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. Local folks, young (ARMS students) and older (...
Editor, Daily News My first reaction upon hearing all the hubbub about inappropriate sexual conduct was “What the heck?” I’ve been fending off bullies all my life; from escaping the clutches of the assistant manager in the stockroom at my first job to threatening one boss with a box cutter if he...
Editor, Daily News Yes, I’m talking about Trump again. I try not to refer to him as President because he hardly lives up to that title. Being President of the United States is an honorable position for a person who represents the ideals and values of the people, all people, regardless of race,...

Editor, Daily News I would characterize Franken’s behavior as a Saturday Night Live skit gone too far. As a theater person, I have encountered lots of bawdy parody from Shakespeare to vaudeville and accepted it for what it is — a parody of human impulses. And directors, actors/actresses stage...
Editor, Daily News To start this letter, I want to make it clear that I do not have Facebook, email or texting and I’m not the only one, but I am interested in the business of the town of Orange and consequently watch the board of selectmen’s meeting every week. Apparently, I miss a lot by not...
Editor, Daily News The Republican Party is about to present, in its words, an overhaul of the current Federal tax code, which President Trump “promises” will provide the “greatest tax cuts in history.” The President often cites his administration as the “best,” “greatest,” etc., but then we need...
