Correction: Kirby Mtn is not conservative!

Posted By on Thu, Mar 30, 2006 at 11:51 AM

Got an email from Eric at Out of Kirby Mountain who complains about being included in the conservative edition of my Tuesday Deadline Linkdump. He writes:

"Imagine the prospect of 'conservative' viewers anticipating a sympathetic voice in my blog and finding instead a site that supports vegetarianism, animal rights, the environment, economic justice, and anarchism. What will they make of the recent posts against meat-eating, about U.S. soldiers massacring families in Iraq, and the march of fascism? Perhaps they will follow some of the links and become avid readers of Emma Goldman or check on the day's historical events in the labor struggle!"

I responded, saying that every time I looked at the blog, it had some anti-wind post. And it sounded to me conservative, i.e., conserve the ridgelines. He wrote back saying he's a conservationist, but not a conservative.

"There's a disturbing lack of criticism of industrial wind from the left, or even honest assessment of both its impacts and its benefits (or utter lack of, apart from being an efficient means of moving scads of public money into the pockets of investors)."

So I guess I have one fewer conservative on my blogroll than I thought. I've been looking hard to find other conservative voices in the VT blogosphere. I know they must be out there. If you know of any more, please advise.

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
