WAGE WHACKERS: In a recent editorial, The Sun discussed how much money the minimum wage is in certain states. They praised New Hampshire at $7.25 an hour. I’d like to know how anyone can support a family on $7.25 an hour. Once again, one of the most ultra-conservative papers in the entire country doesn’t want people to get ahead. Shame on you.

Lowell

LET’S GET ALONG: For all the women who enjoy male bashing and express hate for white males, they should realize half the population is male in the United States and it’s not an Amazon society. Get over it, please.

COSTLY DECISION: Plastic bags are multi-use, they are not single use. I use them to carry food home, to carry books in them, and then finally for trash. So now by banning them, I have to go buy plastic bags to use them for trash. You are not accomplishing anything but adding another expense to consumers.

Lowell

REAL HEROES: I just want to say I am proud of all our U.S. veterans. They’ve given us a good life. We should not take them for granted, and yet I see so many struggling. We should do better for our men and woman who sacrifice so much.

Dracut

NO LENIENCY: There’s no such thing as don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. Everybody gets a slap on the wrist. Just look at the state police. They’re retiring and getting their pensions after stealing money from taxpayers. They wind up paying a fine. Put them in jail.

Tewksbury

HIGH HORSE: Sure, cops on patrol horses. That’s what Lowell needs, another way for police to sit around all day in a saddle and watch from high above and do nothing.

Lowell

KEEP IT UP: I just got through watching President Trump on CNN, and he’s a good fighter. I hope he keeps fighting for America.
