Letters 3 – 16 – 2012

Kudos for True North Reports 

Great Issue! That “Open Letter” on energy has so much horsepower behind it that likely the legislature, the Governors posse and bureaucracy will just have to ignore it as though it had never been received. Burned as toxic waste?

Kevin Ryan’s writing is very welcome. Good writer, good reporter.

Good efforts on reliable affordable power by all, just another reason why the advocates, bureaucrats and politicians will have to get their backs up and press on Regardless!

Tough to grow roses on a rock ledge!! Good work, in spite of my pessimism.

– Doug Richmond


And more kudos for True North Reports

The piece on TNR Hearing on Physician Assisted Suicide is great…. You should add a link to your previous TNR piece!!! That is WOW!!!

– Karen McCauliffe


Editor’s note: And here it is… Shumlin “no comment” on Steve Kimbell’s remark that physician assisted suicide can help curb healthcare costs.
