Re: “Walters: Nothing to See Here, Say Senators

Nice work Walters! Finally a piece with some "bite." Dick Mazza is a nice decent and popular guy and he's been a loyal and very effective public servant. That said, it sounds like he's willing to release his tax returns for public scrutiny. Take him up on it, Publish them. I'm certain we will all be bored to tears because everything will be in order. Then any lingering "questions" will be forever answered.

Re: “Walters: State Data Breach Much Larger Than First Thought

Rich Nadworny recently had a thoughtful commentary on VPR about how our technology is not serving us well.

Whether it is Vermont Health Connect or the complete lack of cyber-security, it is arguable there have been more cons than pro from forcing everything on-line. Every few months there is a new major hack of everyone's data, including social security numbers and critical identifying information allowing for identity theft, the most recent being this news about Vermont Department of Labor/Job Link Alliance. This follows on major hacks of Federal Office of Personnel Management (exposing over 21.5 million people); the Anthem HealthCare data breach (78+ million people), etc.

There have obviously been many conveniences from the incredible expansion of the internet over the last 20 years. But as for record keepers of personal identifying data such as government bureaucracies and health care or financial companies, at what point do we as a society demand these organizations must go off-line and return to paper record-keeping and paper files simply for personal safety and protection of privacy? Maybe all of these companies and government agencies must be held personally liable for every single identity theft, including not just money stolen but time and hassle of being forced to recover identity? The banks seems to do a better job, why are health care companies and the government not able to follow suit?

Eff this noise. Seriously Seven Days? So you want to be serious? This is trivial shite. Get it together, JW, this is pathetic.

Re: “A Wife Vows to Fight Her Husband's Deportation

Seven Days STILL has reported neither the details of Carrillo's DUI arrest nor why the Chittenden County States Attorney dismissed the charges. Very safe to assume those inconvenient details would undermine the tear-jerker propaganda in this "journalistic report." Cold harsh advice to teens: don't get pregnant if single and unemployed, especially by unemployed illegal immigrants. Pretty much a sure-fire way to guarantee a wasted life of tragic struggle and poverty.
