Re: “'Durang Bang'

it's great to go to the theater and nearly die laughing. Lost Nation Theater's production of DURANG BANG is out to lunch hilarious. Don't miss it. Margo Whitcomb's direction is perfectly warped and the cast live in the loony DURANG world of fun-house parody, non-sequiturs and three stoogalistic comedy like it's their home planet. A treat to see comic virtuosity live onstage. Go. You'll be tickled. You'll be gasping.

Re: “‘Reactionary Fringe’ Pushes Back Against Mayor’s ‘Trash Talk’

Are 40% of Burlington voters "reactionary fringe?" No more than are the people who support the Mayor's development plans "facist lackeys of corporate greed". It's fun to call names but really what good does it do? We, who opposed the Sinex Mall are a sizable minority who have a different philosophy of development and transparency than the Mayor and many members of City Council, , and unfortunately, a growing (and classic) distrust of the relationship between consultants, city government, the established non-profit sector and developers. That's why we are bringing the lawsuit and continuing the fight. While we do this we invite everyone to engage in civil dialogue about the future of our city and lets please TALK ISSUES, not take offense at questions, and try to be transparent and avoid labels and personal attacks. Myself I fully support some of the mayor's initiatives, and strongly oppose others. If the lawsuit stops the Sinex development we welcome the chance to work with the City on a new plan. We will fight for the same input and co-development on the Southern Connector, City Hall Park, Mem Auditorium and the Moran Plant and we will continue the important conversation about how we can avoid gentrification and provide affordable housing in Burlington - which many of us believe is linked to increasing the minimum wage and taking a long hard look at current definitions of "low income" and "affordable." Let us accept that there are different philosophies at play here, Democrat, Republican Old Progressive, New Progressive Socialist, Independent, Green and different opinions within each sector. And lets talk issues and what we believe are factsnot adopt the style and lack of substance of the current national dialogue. D. Schein
