Re: “Chasing the Images That Make the News

Love this story, thanks Ken. I ran into them at wcax once and always wondered what their backstory was. It's like the Vt version of the film Nightcrawler.

Re: “Listeners Who Veer From Tired Stories Hit 'Rumble Strip Vermont'

Glad to see this incredible show get the attention it deserves. Erica's deep curiosity about what's going on around her--what people are thinking and doing and saying and why it might be fun to know--drives each and every story she reports. She's right, the podcast form is freeing in many ways and she really makes the most of it.

Re: “Chasing the Images That Make the News

In my travels throughout Franklin County as a freelance photographer and corespondent to the St. Albans Messenger I've encountered Dave many times and have always found him to be courteous and professional. Congratulations on a great article Ken Picard on individuals committed to their community.

Very nice human interest story. Have seen Dave and his wife in action at many scenes over the years always in a professional and caring manor.

Re: “Listeners Who Veer From Tired Stories Hit 'Rumble Strip Vermont'

Thank you for your article about Erica; she is a gem, and deserves recognition for her stories.
Original, insightful, and narrated with a beautiful voice. A voice for Vermont!
Vaughn Hood's story is one of her best; they're all good.

Re: “Listeners Who Veer From Tired Stories Hit 'Rumble Strip Vermont'

Rumble Strip is THE BEST! Erica asks the most interesting questions because she really is interested. She seems to get to the heart of things and we get to hear more intimate sides of stories and people! She's great! I agree with the commenter above...Rumble Strip should be run on VPR!

Re: “Listeners Who Veer From Tired Stories Hit 'Rumble Strip Vermont'

Heilman doesn't do this for an audience she really sees the world through the questions she asks. She has an uncanny ability to put anyone she talks to at ease and often she is able to get them to start telling their story and that in itself is what we all want. We want to connect and find a common thread. Thanks to 7 Days for bringing her and RumbleStript to the attention of Vermonters.

Re: “Listeners Who Veer From Tired Stories Hit 'Rumble Strip Vermont'

Such a great story. I've been listening to Rumble Strip since it started. VPR should be running this highly engaging and off beat podcast. Would make a great full time show!

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

I think the operative word here is "vegan" not Muslim. She stated she was a "member of a Muslim household", not that she was a Muslim.

The restaurant got punked, PETA is laughing out loud, and the confused are mad at Muslims. Muslims who choose to eat at restaurants that are not halal tend to be highly aware that foods that are forbidden are likely to be on the menu.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

I empathize with the Bistro owner, offending the wrong Muslin can result in decapitation.

Uh, this article says she wasn't Muslim. That's funny, SINCE SHE SAID SHE WAS IN THE POST!

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

Ridiculous! All of this!!! I'm a jew.....but why would I ever be offended by bacon? Its food people!!! Get real...we are so quick to be ultra politically correct, that inevitably, we offend someone anyways. Where does it end????? I'm offended by idiots, ignorance and cry babies, so I just choose to ignore them......

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

Dysinger is a coward. The word "bacon" is offensive to no one. The woman who complained is the only bigot in this case. Dysinger capitulated because he wants to be loved by everyone. I guarantee you that if a Christian woman complained about a sign that had the word Muslim in it, Dysinger would have left it up on the grounds that he doesn't condone bigotry.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

The problem is that if bend over forwards for one, where does your whoring stop?

it doesn't. You'll always offend someone. Better to offend one than a group.

Yes Sneakers was cowardly and commenting on those that are just mad doesn't sddress the real issue.

Re: “Bacon Wars: Why Did the Sneakers Bistro Incident Go Viral?

I don't really think it got out of hand. Much more so than any other religion, Muslims are "offended" when non-believers do things that don't conform to their beliefs. Catholics are not offended if someone at the next table is eating a juicy steak on Ash Wednesday or Good Friday.
