Letter: Beem adds nothing to the discussion
I am "from away," but my wife and I spend a considerable amount of time in Maine throughout the year, as we are fortunate to have a home at Higgins Beach.
Whenever I am here, I am sure to obtain a copy of The Forecaster and enjoy your publication, except for the nasty, mean-spirited, hate-filled columns of Edgar Allen Beem.
I travel throughout New England and enjoy reading local newspapers when I can. Never have I encountered a columnist as consistently obnoxious as Mr. Beem. He contributes nothing to rational political discourse and certainly does not enhance your newspaper. I suspect that even those on the far left of the political spectrum can't abide his writings.
