Re: “Blue Paddle Bistro

So worth the drive from Burlington
Phoebe is one of the most successfully innovative chefs we visit. The sea bass rested on a bed of black bean and corn salad that was so flavorfully seasoned. Topped with a spoonful of mango salsa to add a refreshing dash to the savory salad and bass. She knows how much is enough and not too much to add to a dish like this. Very complex but not overly so. The bass was grilled to perfection --- tender, juicy, but with such a very crispy skin... That's talent in a kitchen. My table-mates as well had wonderful dishes --- duck breast yummy, and memorably: tortellini with a creamy chorizo-flavored sauce, with the addition of grilled shrimp. Again, just enough and not too much to create a very interesting and flavorful combination. Wines are reasonably priced and a decent selection. I cannot emphasize what I think is great value at Blue Paddle. The food prep is outstanding, fresh ingredients, creative and successful. Great, friendly service, nice easy atmosphere. I live in Burlington and this is worth the drive. Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5

Re: “Shumlin Considers Replacing Vermont Health Connect

As someone who helped put Bill Boetcher away, I point out that he was caught lying to regulatory officials when he attested or was under a requirement to be telling the truth. Also, for providing fraudulent reports to the government while collecting Medicare and Medicaid funds for his hospital.

Unfortunately, politicians aren't held by the law to these standards, that is unless they are formally "attesting" to the truth of their statements ----either under oath (the way various liars in Congressional hearings are caught up) or by signing a formal document with an attestation.

But a politician/government official standing up in front of a microphone for a couple years and saying something he/she knew at the time to not to be true? Well, there's no law against that. Seriously, there's no law against that.

It's up to the press and determined citizens (protected by the First Amendment) to expose the lies, and for the voters (as long as they take their responsibility seriously, and their voting rights aren't impaired) to punish the politician who lies.

Re: “In Striking Reversal, Shumlin Abandons Single-Payer Reforms

The four proposed reforms the Governor describes at the close of his statement are perhaps the most rational description of what needs to be done that I've seen from Montpelier in years. These are feet-on-the-ground realistic proposals, and based on a solid diagnosis of where the problems are that make our system "broken."
Had we focused on these four actions four years ago, instead of frittering away millions of dollars and millions of minutes on"single payer," we might actually have had something closer to a "fundable" system today. But, let's all look forward and face the facts.
If the doctrinaire single payer folks will please just take a deep breath and get behind these proposals (instead of causing further delays), we can make huge progress toward our shared goals, just as the Governor points out.

Re: “Media Note: Seven Days Hires Hallenbeck, Remsen

Thank you Seven Days! I'm still shaking my head over Gannett's apparent belief that the public did not value the superb reporting provided by Remsen and Hallenbeck. A sad display of the corporation's lack of understanding of the important role of a literate, quality-driven, and yes, truly "free press" is in a democracy.
So thanks again, 7D, for being the best you can be at what you do.
