Madness

March Madness has taken a new meaning in Methuen during the search for a new solicitor. Start filling out your brackets now before it gets too confusing. The players are multiplying rapidly.

Tax increases

I understand everybody is busy with their lives but if you don’t call, text or email your state representative and state senator, the governor will force all these tax increases through the Legislature. I guarantee the Merrimack Valley is going to get nothing out of all these tax increases.

Iraq war

Socrates once said, in war there is money to be made. Why hasn’t the public demanded to know why it took so long to defeat Iraq? As a World War II vet, we defeated three of the largest, most powerful countries in about three and a half years, about one-third of the time to beat little Iraq. A man like General Patton would have done it much sooner.
