I read this Union Leader editorial today on civil unions. I posted a comment of my own on the story, but I dunno if they’ll publish it. I doubt they will. So read the article and pretend it has this at the bottom.
“Another square-wheeled Union Leader editorial that comes off about as progressive and foreward thinking as the Third Reich. Every week its the same thing, and it never deviates: fear of change.
Why do I even live here? This place is absolutely beautiful, but each passing day I find I have less and less in common with this state. Every time NH seeks to climb off the bottom rung on the ladder of social evolution, somebody starts screaming about their rights being taken away. I’m surprised we are even permitted to have a state flag that doesn’t bear a portrait of John Stark himself. Why we haven’t already blasted his likeness into the side of Franconia Notch remains a mystery to me.
And how can you argue “blindsided” when, to be perfectly honest, there hasn’t possibly been enough discourse in New Hampshire on the subject for anyone to even be “sided” period? Nobody cares. That’s what I see. This state doesn’t care about anything except its God-given rights to smoke cigarettes and not wear seatbelts.”
