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: “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.

Re: “House Defeats Senate Marijuana Legalization Bill

I'm for legalization, but this was a giveaway to corporations and large-scale growers. It limited product marketing to raw cannabis only, so there'd have been no option for innovation. It was unfair to regular citizens, and it guaranteed the continuation of some form of black market, since individuals could not grow for themselves, and costs will surely go sky-high for retail pot. Passing a bad law will mean we're stuck with a bad law until a new legislature corrects the problems. Just like the Civil Union. It was compromise that led to a bad, unfair law, that was in place for 10 years before it was corrected to be full marriage for all to be fair to all Vermonters.

Re: “House Poised to Vote on Decriminalizing Homegrown Pot

Better than the corporate giveaway that the Senate bill was. Or, rather, fairer. I'm for legalizing it and taxing it, but not allowing only large-scale commercial growing.
