    Really like your article, I think you bring up some valid points. You can also look at the numbers in the small towns which I think get ignored. Granville to Humason by 201 votes,
    Montgomery by 131 votes, Russell by 164 votes and Southampton by 254 votes. The democrats needed to stay closer in these towns. Also losing Southwick by 865 votes is crushing to the democrats. In 1982 Patrick Gable was the Democratic State Senate nominee.
    in Berkshire County. He won Pittsfield, North Adams and Adams the three largest voting communities. But he lost the election when Peter Webber the Republican nickeled and dimed him to death in the 20 plus smaller towns. Lesson to be learned- pay attention to voters in the smaller towns,
