Confederate Symbols, Fake Issues, and a Misnamed Protest

by Don August 23, 2017

The historical part of Alan Vervaeke’s August 22, 2017 column in the Laconia Daily Sun, www.laconiadailysun.com, titled, “Dead soldiers don’t keep the Confederacy alive”, was excellent. Some of his opinions deserve further consideration. I agree with Vervaeke that it’s shortsighted to remove statues of Confederate warriors from any city. As he says, it’s their heritage. So […]

Why Sen. Warren’s Well-Meaning Hearing-Aid Bill Could be Dangerous.
