The New Hampshire Gazette

by Robert C. Koehler Our post-election hope couldn’t be more fragile. Does Joe Biden see his mission as merely reclaiming “situation normal” from Donald Trump? How aware is he of the big, beyond-our-lifetimes future and the crucial need to address climate change? Is he able to acknowledge that human interests go well beyond national borders? And if so, how much political traction would he have to...

‘Nones’ Elected Biden-Harris

The New Hampshire Gazette

by James A. Haught Americans who say their religion is “none” delivered the White House to the Biden-Harris Democratic ticket in the 2020 election. That’s the conclusion of a top socio-political researcher, Dr. Ryan Burge of Eastern Illinois University. “I think that Joe Biden should thank the ‘nones’ for being the president-elect right now,” Dr. Burge wrote for the Religion in Public website.

About That Electoral College…

The New Hampshire Gazette

Dear Editor, “Everything was done in strict compliance with applicable law, under the advice of counsel and tax experts,” said Alan Garten, the Trump Organization’s general counsel, as quoted in the New York Times (“Manhattan D.A. Intensifies Investigation of Trump,” December 11, 2020). That mantra is used to defend a man whose taxes and financial dealings are under investigation for fraud.

Eat More Test-Tube Burgers

The New Hampshire Gazette

To the Editor, If President-elect Joe Biden is serious about addressing climate change, he should support federal funding for cultured-meat research. For those who don’t know, cultured meat is grown from cells, without slaughtering our fellow creatures. It will dramatically reduce the environmental damage caused by animal agriculture. Cultured meat requires a fraction of the land, freshwater...

To the Editor: The refusal by the Supreme Court to consider Texas Attorney General Paxton’s bogus suit to void the presidential election results for four battleground states was greeted with relief by most Americans. The decision should guarantee that the validity of Joe Biden’s election will not be challenged by more baseless lawsuits. Few expect, however, that Trump will ever accept the fact...
