The images of crowds gathered, shoulder to shoulder and few masks in sight, haunt me.
There are people who would suggest to me the decision to do this belongs to those in attendance and if I don’t agree, I should steer clear.
Maybe they are right. And I do stay away.
To the Editor:
With warm weather finally here, I am delighted to have my windows open all the time.
I am not so delighted, however, to listen to trucks downshifting into and accelerating out of Congdon Hill Drive in the middle of the night, to hear the endless drone of earth-moving equipment and girders being pounded into foundations, sometimes before the sun rises and to have errant tractor-trailers ending up on my residential street.
