Sound Off

Squawk box

To the Sound Off caller that complained about the rooster: I would rather listen to a rooster all day than my neighbor’s outdoor radio. I have a neighbor with a rooster and a radio. I can relax with the rooster, but not with the radio on loud.

Double coverage

Between Mr. Amerding and Mr. Murock in Sunday’s paper, there is truth in print. I agree with them both that a coverup would never had been tolerated in the Bush administration. I cannot understand this country’s reticence to hold both Ms. Clinton and Mr. Obama accountable for another Sept. 11 terrorist attack. How can we put on blinders to that and become so distraught about the Boston attack? Maybe because it is too close to home?

No courage

We have two Democratic state representatives in the Methuen area who voted to increase taxes before trying to find any alternatives by “looking outside the box.” In other words “they went along to get along.” When are we going to vote for some state representatives who have some courage and will vote for the will of the people?

Riffraff residents

Our apartment complex just had the parking lots repaved and the lines repainted. It looks absolutely beautiful. The guys did an awesome job. Thanks. Now if the apartment complex can remove some of the riffraff that live here, that would be awesome.

Postal defender

To the writer of “My 2 cents”: In today’s market, it is a consumer’s bargain to mail an envelope that might travel across the country for only 46 cents. This is not the 1940s; it’s a different time with increased costs and wages. Do we really need a postal carrier to make two rounds per day? I don’t think so. As for each carrier having his or her own Jeep, I think this is known as urban sprawl. How can we expect postal carriers to deliver mail to all sections of a city or town without the necessary convenience of a Jeep? The Postal Service provides us with a great service at a bargain price. And, by the way, I’m not a postal employee.
