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: “The Day After Trump's Victory, a Woman Takes the Citizenship Oath

We all need to join together to assure the promise of the American Dream to all of us, including a valued New Americans. We cannot allow Trump and Trumpism to turn immigration into, essentially, a Bait and Switch.

Re: “Sanders Breaks His Silence on Trump's Election

It's hard to know where to start a reply to the comments so far --- first, if one assumes was the Bernie wanted to change federal policies, rather than just be The Leader, then what he did --- move the Democratic party platform to the Left, was exactly what he meant to do. He could do that only by running as a Democrat. Second, he knows that an independent will never be elected President. It would have been a wasted run, and he would never have been in the televised debates or be able to build the excitement he did, by challenging the Dem. Third, their lake house has nothing to do with the Clinton Foundation! Sheesh, conspiracies beyond conspiracies. Fourth, I would like to encourage people to cut back on "exaggerations." EG: "a candidate nobody wanted," "doing nothing," "she never," "he always." These cut off meaningful discussion and debate, by staking an extreme position (which ofttimes is just incorrect anyway.) For example, by saying Clinton was "a candidate nobody wanted," you are isolating, ignoring, and marginalizing people whom you might want as allies. If we are to rebuild ourselves after this brutal defeat, we need to quit demonizing our brothers and sisters on the Left. We have to start somewhere building the Resistance.

Re: “The Gun: How I Bought an AR-15 in a Five Guys Parking Lot

Given the hysteria being provoked when some of us just want to support the survivors of Orlando, and finally get some gun safety regulations to protect ALL of us, I'm thinking, Mr./Ms. ezduzit: "The more their population density (White, Christian gun-owners), the more the hate of every Muslim, peace-loving American, LGBT and everyone else by White Christian gun-owners."
Let that soak in, friend. How do you feel when you read that? Smeared? Unjustly accused? See how wrong-headed it is to blame a whole category of people because some of their kind do or say despicable things? So please, just stop doing it. Peace. (And a PS to everyone out there: If you wouldn't post something nasty if you had to sign your real name, then think about not posting it just because you get to use anonymity to hide behind. Chill. Thanks.)

Re: “Federal Court Ruling Means No Public Financing for Zuckerman

@PaulJones: Senator Zuckerman did not "break any rules." He was following the rules that apply to public financing, in hopes that he would eventually qualify. If anything, he put himself at a future disadvantage by adhering to those strict rules. @"WalterCronkite": Public financing is not about lazy candidates - it's about removing the influence of money on politicians, and it's about giving the politicians more time to be with constituents, instead of being on the phone or in the cocktail party with fatcats. Public financing is a good thing, in other words, if you want more contact with your Senators and Representatives.... (Also, "Walter," why not be more transparent about who you are, instead of using a pseudonym? Thanks for considering openness, which we'd like our politicians to be, too, right? Just a thought...)

Re: “Sanders Shrugs Off Attacks by Former President Clinton

And here's what the candidate himself is saying;. This is something all of us voting on the "D" ballot must take to heart, regardless of the Primary and Convention outcome: "And let me also say to every person in this room that on our worst day we are a hundred times better than any of the Republican candidates on their best day." .
