Re: “Is There a Penis Size That's Just Too Small?

What made Athena say "the ladies"? There was no indication of with what gender Rob's bad experiences were. Seven Days, you can do better than that.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Indigenous Vermonters Form Abenaki First Group

Yes, let's all get a really good evaluating "education" on the so-called "Abenaki" groups in Vermont. Let's actually read the BIA Report and the previous State's Report of 2002 Eva Jacob's-Carnahan and the AG's Dept, shall we, Vermonters?
Let's see here: In a nut shell, and to make a long story short, the Swanton group led by Homer was started in fact by Ronnie Canns, you know, the son of politician Julius Canns who immediately went about advocating for the Homer group in 1992, never mentioned his son involved in creating that group in 1975 after he was in Concord, NH creating a group down there? Or how about the 4 Indians of Alburg being ancestors of Patsy St. Francis, Homer's wife, when in fact, those 4 Indians mentioned in Alburgh Town Records were Akwesasne Mohawk men! Or how about the Chief of the Wabanacus Postcard Wiseman altered, because it was actually an Odanak Chief visiting his ancestral community of Missisquoi, not a Chief of the post 1975 group at all nor its members ancestors? Or how about the Phillips family member, Chief Stevens of the 2004 created group Nulhegan claiming his Phillips family were descendants of the Chief Philipp of ca. 1796 Upper Coos, NH area, when in fact his family is desc.'s of a Peter Phelps, a colored man who came from CT ca. 1790?! DNA testing proves this! Yes, let's have that "education" about the fraudulent state granted and manipulated "recognition" of these pretender "Abenakis" by the Vermont Legislature and the two Governors, or was that three, counting Thomas Salmon back in Thanksgiving, 1976? Do you see the Abenakis laughing? I see the fake one's laughing all the way to the bank!

Re: “Bess O'Brien Doc Gives Voice to Eating Disorders

Gob bless you all. I struggled for 20 yrs with bullemia. Up to 12 times a day. Im lucky to be alive, and even 1 year later after finally overcoming this disease i found out i was 29 weeks pregnant with my son. I was 32 yrs at the time and my husband snd i together since i was 20. Told at 21 yrs ild i couldnt have children and i wanted 15 kids i told my husband. Still wished i couldve. But god knew what he was doing. I was able to have one more son . Both healthy beautiful healthy adults now whom i adore . Im 55 and know that evetyday is a blessing here on earth. Everyday is still a struggle but i just have to remind myself of the hell i lived everyday throwing up and hiding it and at 12 times a day it was hard. Most days i just ate everything in sight and threw up all day long. Its caused allot of health problems from heart attack at 40 to always having dental work done. To hating myself and hoping i would die everyday if i couldnt stop. How did i recover!? I almost died . I had 3 bleeding ulcers and didnt know it. They cut me open and now have a 12 inch scar on my stomach in 1991 and couldnt move out of bed for 3 weeks. That gave me my first break. All the rehabs i was in didnt help at all. I was in 4 different ones. It has to come within i think. Or i was just so tired of the shame i felt. I couldnt go on anymore. It feels so good every morning to wake up and know im not going to go through that hell everyday. My boys when born i think gave me allot of strength also. I didnt want to miss one day of seeing them grow up.best times of my life were and still are with my family. Cant wait till my grandchildren come.! God bless . Know it can be overcome. I didnt think it was possible but it truly is... My heart goes out to you all.

Re: “Art Review: 'The SHE Project, Part I,' Living/Learning Gallery

Thanks for covering this installation. I was incredibly impressed by it when I saw it. And, as a man, I could not escape a sense of guilt on behalf of my gender for our role in the pressure upon women, of all ages, to be what is socially regarded as "beautiful". These artists have done an incredible job on many levels in this installation and I look forward to Part 2.

Re: “Why Are the Burlington City Hall Fountains Always Dry?

I really miss the fountain in the top block of Church Street. It made it the coolest, temperature-wise, block on the street. The fact that kids enjoyed it too was a plus to my mind. Surely there is a way to keep fountains in this fine city. Kids love them and the sound of flowing water is a calmative to the worried and hassled people who pause by them.

Re: “Harry Bliss Buys J.D. Salinger House, Starts Cartoon Residency Program

I used to enjoy the occasional Bliss cartoon in the New Yorker and in Seven Days but his unhinged rant against all who read the newspaper, magazines and old-fashioned paper books as anti-environment permanently turned me off. As if the raw materials/hard rock mining and electricity demands of computers, tablets, etc. have zero environmental impact. The irony being he would of course never have had a professional career were it not for those very newspapers and magazines and their readers. Have never looked at his cartoons again.

Re: “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month [SIV457]

Thank you so much Cathleen. I'm so very sorry to hear about your son. It is heartbreaking how many people have been affected by suicide and depression. I hope that by talking about this more openly, perhaps more people will feel confident enough to come forward and ask for help when they are struggling. Thanks so much, wish you the best, Eva

Re: “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month [SIV457]

Eva,
This story is so well done; thank you! My heart goes out to each of these families and all those who are suffering silently. I too lost a son to suicide 6 1/2 years ago. He was 19 and held all of the amazing characteristics that are described about of those who die by suicide. He had a great sense of humor, loved and cared for people, and masked his disease as well. My hope for people is that they DO talk about their loved ones, get educated about signs of suicide and then talk with your friends about it. It may save a life.
Blessings to you Eva (and to all of us that are left behind)
Cathleen

Re: “Unlocking the Queen City's Latest Craze: Escape

We played last week and had a blast. We've also played both rooms at Escape Room 60 in Williston and had an equally good time. I'm really happy to have some of these in Burlington.

Re: “New Artist Residency Program Launched at Quarry Hill

Our present plan is to expand the return to an artist's colony/ retreat in the next few years.
Beyond the "Isolated Arts" program we have come to the conclusion that QH is at its best when focused on its original intention: to be a place where artists, writers, musicians freethinkers will be able to pursue their inclinations.
The idea is that artists would buy into a nonprofit corporation and have a dwelling on the place in which to live and do their work. We hope to see the new phase of Quarry Hill implemented soon. This year was our 70th anniversary, a good time to make plans for the next 70 years. More will be announced on this plan in the near future.

Re: “Why Is Edward James Olmos on a Mural of Vermont History?

Olmos was a good friend of Dan Bonfigli, a tennis pro who died of cancer a few years ago. I talked with Olmos at Danny's funeral. Dan's brothers Mark and Andy each started local businesses, Earth Cars and Dealer.com. So it is quite likely that Olmos strolled down Church Street and bought a cigar in Garcia's Tobacco Shop.
