Re: “Dr. Dog, Yellerkin

Scott McMicken of Dr. Dog on his favorite places to play. He mentioned Stubbs and "Higher Game"... "Oh, there’s this place, The Higher Game in Burlington, Vermont, oddly enough. It’s just this really cool venue. It’s pretty simple. They have two rooms. One room can hold maybe 500 people and then the other room can hold maybe about 1,000 or so. It’s kinda in a parking lot next to a Burger King. It’s nothing really that special architecturally or anything but maybe it’s more to do with the people that work there and the general kind of way in which music is received in Burlington – really unpretentious and really open-minded and it always feels great to play there, mostly I think on account of the people that live there. And among the people that live there, the ones that work at the club are super nice."

Re: “Air Show Noise Sets Off Some Burlington Residents

The deafening sound of freedom. Or the debilitating sound of military - political hubris? The strafings we had from the ridiculous Thunderbirds is like what the neighbors of the airport will have to deal with ... and farther out when a plane twice as loud as the F-16 arrives. The noise will not only demolish property values for Winooski, Williston, & South Burlington, but for Shelburne, Hinesburg, and Williston, too. But not South Hero, where Sanders will be holed up. Or over the Leahy's farm in Middlesex. Not a single job created by the F-35 basing, and there was never a risk of losing the F-16 if the F-35 had been bedded elsewhere. Not a single defense of this boondoggle stands up to scrutiny.

Re: “Air Show to Wow Burlington — Minus One Local Flight School

Hopefully the thunderstorms will cancel this ridiculous, wasteful showcase of "defense" muscle.

Re: “Burlington Police Investigate Assault As a Possible Hate Crime

Start with that dude with the swastika tattooed on his face who's been busted for doling out senseless beatings to minorities before. That's the crowd that we have the pleasure of seeing (and hearing... rated R only) in City Hall Park and on the corners of Main & Cherry Streets. Something has got to be done about the party-till-they're-homeless crowd in Burlington.

Re: “Critics of Rutland Refugee Plan Grill Aldermen, Resettlement Officials

Racism and xenophobia disguised as a play for political transparency. See Utica, NY, a city just like Rutland, struggling, declining... until they accepted thousands of Muslim refugees.

Truth is, welcoming political refugees saves towns, saves economies, and saves local business.

Re: “Media Note: News Outlets Face Tough Choices on Graphic Police Videos

The video still doesn't make it seem like shooting and killing a senior citizen was the right thing to do. A 23-year-old 2nd-yer cop should not have been there.

Re: “Former Trooper Had a History of Illegal Searches, Documents Suggest

If his supervisors were involved in this shameful behavior, they should be fired, too. But he should never wear a badge again. he probably should go to jail.
