Trees damaged

In the area of 57 South Bowdoin Street, in Lawrence, there are several trees that are partially damaged or dying off, on the street facing side only. The road is covered with dead leaves, just like when it is autumn. Could it be possible that the chemicals and steam from the hot topping machines that paved South Bowdoin Street this past week caused harm to those trees?

Security

I’m confused. People are outraged the NSA is invading our privacy. Yet people are demanding better protection and questioning the FBI’s lack of action watching the Tsarnaev brothers. Will someone please make up my mind?

Postal service

So it seems that the United States Postal Service is going down the tubes along with other historical foundations that established America. Are we ready to walk down the block to a large box of community shared mail? Maybe we could go back to the Pony Express to maintain mail delivery?

Tax supporters

To all of the people who are complaining about the rise in taxes on gas and cigarettes. The Eagle-Tribune always posts a list of how they voted on important issues. This means you, Linda Dean Campbell, Kathleen O’Connor Ives and all the others who voted to raise the tax. Vote them out!

Obama snubbed

So, Obama’s “friends” Russia and Venezuela snub him by offering Edward Snowden asylum. North Korea and Iran are openly dealing arms and oil. France and Germany snub him on the economic front. Even England ignores his wishes. Al-Qaida brazenly breaks out hundreds of prisoners in Iraq and the Taliban openly makes inroads back into Afghanistan. It looks like his foreign policy is as much of a debacle as his economic policy. But he has time to vacation again, three weeks after the last one.
