The End Is Nigh

Alice Williams Concord, NH Concord

The first time I read Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, was during a power outage. I was about fourteen and the power wasn't likely to come on for the rest of the night. We lit candles to see by, and since it was still the age of flip-phones, there's wasn't much else to do but find a way to entertain ourselves until it was late enough to justify going to bed. I found an ... ... more

Tilting At Windmills; the Mire of Twitter

ElleHuckins Bow, NH Tally Ho Ln

So, I deleted my twitter in October. It's a soul-sucking and stressful website full of some of the most idiotic voids for idiotic people to scream into. It had become a toxic environment, a place where everyone seemed more interested in jeers than discourse. Well, I recently fired the old bird back up and yeah, it's still awful. I just spent three hours arguing nothing with the online ... ... more

New Hampshire is the best state. Not only because we have no sales tax, or because we get the first primary, or because it's one of the most beautiful places on earth, even though that's all true.

On a recent episode of 60 Minutes, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was asked if she thinks that President Donald Trump is a racist.
