Avoid fouling the nest

In a December column, Michael Schwalm wrote “The Pro-NH 2020 group wants another layer of government intrusion … .” Of course, after Sept. 11 he also said that the United States should “dust off a few nukes” on Afghanistan, so I suppose we must consider the source.

Remember – NH 2020 is a study, nothing more. To sanitize an old saying, “even a dog knows not to defecate where it sleeps.” We need more information about where we eat, live and sleep, in order to plan for the future. NH 2020 will provide it.
