Romney's Logo & the New England Patriots - letter to the NYTs, 11/06/07
Here in northern New Hampshire I think we couldn't care less if a candidate is Mormon, Tree Druid or a Zoroastrian Fire Worshiper. The old school worships with the Red Sox and the new school with the New England Patriots. I’m sure I was not the only one dismayed in the last few weeks when the Romney signs started going up to see that Romney's logo is almost identical to that of the New England Patriots. New England has become a different place in the last seven years and frankly, we have become a better people . . . but not because of Romney. That credit goes to Manny and Big Papi and also to Randy Moss, Wes Welker, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. For Romney to attempt to accommodate this energy may be a few degrees away from copyright infringement but it well constitutes a crime against humanity here in New England.
