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.
We often see studies of why the cost of living is so high in Vermont, but we never hear about why wages are so low, especially with such low unemployment. I would love to see Molly Walsh, Doug Hoffer, or Art Wolfe answer that question.
Are the Facebook posts offensive? Absolutely. Is this guy an idiot? Quite possibly. But is this level of snooping newsworthy? Seems to me David Kirk should be judged on the basis of his actual record on the school board (whatever that is) and not on public shaming based on personal posts to social media. I share Brian M's concern about the thought police taking over public discourse. Do a little digging into the Burlington schools parent's group on FB for some of the more absurd examples.
Regarding Daniel L's comments on "reasonable folks" on the school board. Some are just that - people trying to do well for our city and our kids. But probably a majority is there to push a personal agenda - whether it's cutting taxes or increased spending for pet projects and personal causes. I personally look with suspicion at anyone one on the school board who doesn't have any "skin in the game," i.e., kids in the school system. What is it that motivates them to take on such a time consuming and miserable job?
Part of the problem is that most school board elections are uncontested. This provides an easy opening for nut jobs like Mr. Kirk to get on the school board. Until school board elections are contested, and a moderate slate of candidates emerges, we are likely to see continued turmoil in Burlington public schools.
