On the map

I hope the residents of Methuen who voted for the current members of the City Council are proud of the choices they made. They succeeded in putting Methuen on the map. It can now be considered as the main campus for Clown College.

Daytime TV

I thought today’s modern woman has evolved into a strong, independent-thinking, take-charge women of power? So why is daytime TV still aimed at the shallow June Cleavers? Daytime talk shows are all about cooking, cleaning gadgets, make-up, anti-aging, child-bearing and fashion.

Oliver’s fate

Regarding this whole situation with Oliver and the little girl that fell on him. Oliver is also a victim here, he was minding his own business! Never mind the family of the little girl putting out a hand of friendship. That family should also be apologizing, too, as the little girl was alone at 7 and her parent was in the house! If someone fell on you your first instinct would be to curse or yell or even hit — it’s a normal reaction. Oliver was on his property. Oliver needs to be with his family and the family of the little girl should step up and take all the responsibility for this incident. I feel sorry for the little girl.

Reagan

I did say Reagan and Thatcher were two of a kind — both heartless. Now, we must assume they loved their countries; it’s the people they didn’t like, the middle class. I did not say I loved Obama. Perhaps Obama and Romney together could not get us out of the mess we are in. As for Reagan saving our country — from what? His party has always caused the problems but it was people like Franklin D. Roosevelt who saved us. It’s not because I said so. It’s right there in history.
