Re: “St. Mike’s Grad Designs Inaugural Outfits for Ivanka Trump’s Kids

Oh well, it's to be expected. I supposed even Hitler commissioned dressmakers to supply Eva Braun.

Re: “The Internet Branded Her a Racist. Does It Matter That She’s Bipolar?

I'm sick and tired of people like Heather Wick who bully and harass others (with so-called humor or otherwise") and then claim that they are the real victim. I don't know much about bipolar disorder, but I sure can spot a sociopath when I see one.

Re: “Vermont Congressional Delegation to Attend Trump Inauguration

To those commenters who seem to have failed high school civics and United States history, attending the inaugural ceremonies has absolutely nothing to do with upholding the Constitution. The ceremonies are entirely without connection to the Constitution, except for the administering of the oath, which need not be accompanied by any ceremony at all. Boycotting the ceremony is NOT boycotting the Constitution or showing it any disrespect. Plenty of presidents have taken the oath with no ceremony at all. We Vermonters should know this above all others, since Calvin Coolidge took the oath by the light of a kerosene lamp on August 3, 1923 in the parlor of his family home in Plymouth Notch -- after which he went back to bed.

Re: “Norwich University Band to Perform at Trump’s Inauguration

Norwich University most certainly does NOT represent the state of Vermont! The militarist Norwich University is an aberration and an outlier in the state of Vermont, representing few and symbolizing what many here find utterly abominable.

Re: “An Ambitious Muslim Politician Navigates Uncertain Times

It's a pleasure to see someone involved in Vermont politics who actually seems to have some common sense!

Re: “New Location, Same Great Vibe at the Burlington Winter Farmers Market

Thank God. Same great vibe. I don't know what I would have done if the vibe hadn't been great or hadn't been the same.
