Pig and kitty
How wonderful to see a heartwarming story on the front page of today’s paper (Monday, Sept. 24) about the pig who saved the kitty in the fire. Thank you for starting my day off with a smile.

Fit to scream
Mitt Romney is correct on the subsidies. It’s just that he has the guts to say it. I’ve walked in downtown Haverhill during the middle of the day and I want to scream, "Isn’t anybody working?"

Elitist Mitt
The recently released video of comments made to a group of wealthy contributors shows that Mitt Romney is an elitist who views with contempt those Americans who do not pay federal income tax — a group which includes many families earning less than $50,000 a year as well as many senior citizens on Social Security.

Gold spoon Mitt
In response to the comment Mitt Romney made on TV about the people of America: Well, not all people were born with a gold spoon in their mouths like him. Some people have to work for a living. And we have compassion for people who were not born rich. Everything was handed to him.

The 53%
I’d like to know why Mitt Romney should be in trouble for saying something out loud that 53 percent of the American people are thinking. So just remember, those in the 53 percent, who to vote for at election time.

Mitt's right
I’m calling to say that I agree 100 percent with Gov. Romney’s statement at a fundraiser that there are too many people living in the age of entitlement and that’s got to stop. President Obama is keeping all of those people on the dole to get reelected.

Good letter
I wanted to compliment Adolf Giger of Groveland for his exceptional letter to the editor ("It's time to end Obama's socialist experiment," Sept. 18). It’s right on. He has the facts at his command and I do hope that a lot of people will read it.
