  • Editorial: Secrets to a long life

    Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The Concord (N.H.) Monitor and was originally published in that newspaper on April 8.

    What does it mean to live long and prosper? It’s worth thinking about as the baby boom generation heads into retirement and as their parents head into the final stages of life.

You look up and ask yourself the question, “How did I get here?” or “What am I doing here?” You wish you could push “Stop” and then “Rewind” and then put a different tape in?

    The Nashua (N.H.) Telegraph on the upcoming presidential election (April 2):
    It was President Lyndon Johnson who once observed that, “Whenever most senators look in a mirror, they see a president.”
    That undoubtedly applies to Sens. Rand Paul, Lindsay Graham and Marco Rubio, but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz may be the only one among them who looks in the mirror and sees Galileo.
