If you're looking for "I Spys," dating or LTRs, this is your scene.
If you're looking for full-on kink or group play, you'll get what you need here.
You don't need to use imagination or towering shoebox models. Computer-facilitated imaging technologies are able to give very realistic views of projects such as this, and there are already files in the CEDO site for this project that you can look at right now.
What these files show is the significant degree to which this project would (a) fit into the downtown skyscape relatively unobtrusively and (b) not even be noticeable --literally, not figuratively-- from a lot of downtown and even up the hill.
Please check these out so you can see for yourself (from the project documents page https://www.burlingtonvt.gov/CEDO/Project-…
- "Photo Visualizations- Before and After Views of Project from Locations Throughout City (Includes All views from 3/7 and Edmund's View from 3/21)"
- "Animated 3-D Model "Fly Through" (Note: this one's a little bit dumb in that it's a >50MEG PowerPoint file, but regardless: Click on slide #2, then give it a minute, and the animation starts up, but you can scroll through as well):
Delighted for this post This non-breeder thinks that Harrington and Olsen's Razed work is just about the funniest writing to come out of the Queen City ever. As additional evidence, my I proffer...
"NURSERY RHYMES I NOW SING TO MY KIDS THANKS TO THIS STUPID ELECTION" - Harrington
"10 CONVERSATIONS IN OUR HOME TODAY THAT ENDED WITH “YOU’RE STUPID”" - Olsen
(That they both have "stupid" in their titles is coincidence. Or...is it...?)
"Many speakers said the low-rise profile and little-city feel of Burlington is part of what makes it unique and livable...Nancy Kirby...added: '"We have grandchildren and we want them to enjoy Burlington the way we enjoyed Burlington.'"
No, it's not livable. "Livable" implies that a wide variety of people can live here. They can't. They're already priced out. And no, Ms. Kirby's grandchildren won't be able to live in Burlington, at the rate that housings costs are increasing.
I have the utmost respect for the people who are railing against tall buildings (and I'm sympathetic to the notion that this particular project hinges on a zoning change that may be out of step with the current zoning or future form-based zoning).
But my friends? My dear, fellow Burlingtonians? How are we going to keep housing costs increases manageable for middle- and lower-income people if we don't create new housing? And how are we going to create the kind of population density that we need to keep the housing in Burlington, and especially, centralized close to or in downtown, if we don't start putting up big buildings like the project being discussed?
I hope people will read "goodhearth"'s comment and ask:
- Would they have written that a male candidate has blind ambition?
- Would they have written that a male candidate should drop out of a race just if someone "immensely more qualified" joined?
- Would they have suggested that a male candidate not dropping out just because someone "immensely more qualified" joined showed poor character?
For me, the answer's no.
Kesha Ram is exactly the kind of leader we need more of in Vermont. Whether or not she makes it to the Lieutenant Governor's office this time around, I have no doubt that she'll get there soon enough, on her way to even greater positions of leadership.
With all due respect, including the quote "I thought it was an April Fools prank" goes against the spirit of a good April Fools joke. It's like having a kid standing in front of you going, "No, really, I'm not gonna prank ya. Really! Just open that cabinet door!"
So disappointing to hear. Given the current success of Presidential candidates who are antiestablishment (and one of whom, our own hometown hero, is pro-campaign-finance reform), you'd think the Democrats would get the hint about not seeming to be in bed with lobbyists.
I'm sure there's no love lost from the Dems for Heintz's continued coverage about this dishonorable behavior, but count me among the many who think he should be getting medals for helping us voters see what's going on. If you're running for Vermont public office and aren't willing to commit to stopping the flow of lobbyist money, you've probably lost my vote.
A fitting homage! I do wonder about the choice of having Kat Wright sing all the verses. With so many great vocalists there, it might have made a more powerful statement to have each verse handled by a different singer (representing Bernie's diverse supporters and sharing the spotlight, as it were).
