"Anyone worthy of New Hampshire citizenship knows that the state motto is just the first half of a quote by General Stark: 'Live free or die -- death is not the worst of all evils!' But anyone with common sense knows that the quote is to be taken seriously, but not too seriously. Only an extremist could mean it literally -- would a New Hampshire family man really take to the barricades if forced to wear a seat belt or motorcycle helmet? So what does 'Live Free or Die' really mean, practically?" (03/01/11)
