Monday's Child: Observations From the Deck

Posted By on Mon, Apr 15, 2013 at 9:22 AM

I do enjoy the view of Lake Champlain, and the sunset, from my house, even if it's just a sliver. What would improve the view? Cutting down the trees in my neighbors' back yards, sure, but that's not the answer I'm thinking of.

Hint: And some say wind turbines are ugly.

Does anyone disagree that the bane of urban life, aesthetically speaking, is power lines? Seriously offensive, IMHO.

Hey, Mayor Weinberger, how about a campaign to bury the lines in this "most livable city"? Now, that would be a lasting legacy, and way more popular than the Packard Lofts.

In 1968 some visionary Vermonters got rid of billboards, and that turned out pretty nicely. Just sayin.'


"Monday's Child" contemplates events, people, places or things experienced over the weekend past.
