A recent survey of young adults between the age 18 and 33 found they call themselves independents, are nonbelievers and do not go to any church. They do not believe in marriage but just live together. The philosopher Socrates said if any nation is to be brought down, it will be the young that do it.

Time to move?
Those of us who reside in Methuen near Route 110, which the mayor now wishes to widen and open up to more retail facilities are shocked. After exerting so much effort to get the speed reduced and the road narrowed to reduce accidents and make this area safer, we are wondering where he has been living. Surely not on this planet. Well, it must be time to move out of Methuen.
