“The New Hampshire Advantage”—But, For Whom?

The New Hampshire Gazette

Ray Duckler recently wrote a disturbing column in the Concord Monitor about Pittsfield, one of New Hampshire’s property-poor towns, struggling to provide an adequate education for their kids. He quotes one of Pittsfield’s high school students, who addressed the Senate last summer: “every year, we’re set up to lose more and more, and at some point, there’s just going to be nothing left.

Fear Is All Trump Has

The New Hampshire Gazette

Dear Sir: Fear is a very powerful emotion, one that causes otherwise rational people to make irrational decisions. No one knows this better than Donald Trump and the Republican Party. They have used fear for decades to get voters to support them. The Lee Atwater/Willie Horton ads against Michael Dukakis, in the George H.W. Bush Presidential campaign in 1988, were very effective in getting people...

The New Hampshire Gazette

Dear Editor: Really, Trump shows his true self often. It is not the rosied-up self from Republican Convention time, with its hype, through to November 3rd voting. I just came across Trump’s true self in an Oct. 19, 2017, news article, found while cleaning around my computer. True Trump shows in gone-public interaction with the widow of Sgt. La David T.
