Sound Off

You go, girl

I would like to tell Elizabeth Skerry just how little her Facebook page would have impacted her ability to get into an Ivy League school, as school officials implied. (”Timberlane student challenges dress code,” Sept. 27.) She is taking action, doing something about a rule she finds unfair. She is an outstanding example of what change young people can enact, and that is something to be proud of, and certainly, as your writer stated, she should mention to her advantage when applying.

Begs to differ

Young Miss Skerry needs to learn the difference between dressing for a party or a date and dressing for school and work. (When did parents lose all common sense?)

Fright list

Thanks to Marilyn Luther for her letter to the editor. (”Election is about competence, not popularity.” Sept. 23.) I asked in a Sound Off call for a list of President Obama’s accomplishments. Marilyn’s list is frightening because they’re not really accomplishments. And I hope that her letter serves as a wake-up call to the voters of the United States.

Reading assignment

The letter to the editor “This election must be about competence” by Nathan Clark of Derry was very well written and very easy to understand. I agree with everything that has been written and I think that very many people do. I urge everyone to read this letter to the editor and then read it again. Tell friends about it and then make a decision to vote in the correct way.

Two points

Elizabeth Warren does look like a very bitter, angry person. And one that I do not trust. As for Mayor Zanni, he must send birthday greetings to everyone that’s over 70 because I got one when I turned 75. I guess his office staff has nothing better to do with their time.
