Bernie Sanders
Bernie Targets the Media!

Posted By on Mon, Feb 19, 2007 at 8:30 PM

I'm old -fashioned. I miss Lincoln's Birthday and Washington's Birthday. This President's Day stuff lacks historical context and perspective. Any old president will do. Even Richard "I am not a Crook" Nixon?

Even Nixon.

Yuck.

Anyway, it was a quiet Presi- dent's Day in Burlap's South End.  A lot of folks still had work to go to on this "holiday."

That's a shot of Hayward Street out front looking peaceful.

Tuesday,  is "Inside Track" Writing Day - our lips are sealed. I get it in to Pamela at Seven Days by 4 p.m. and it's at the printer by Six.

At 7 p.m. the spotlight will be at St. Mike's McCarthy Arts Center where Vermont's junior United States Senator Bernie Sanders is holding a "Town Meeting On Media Ownership & Why It Matters!"

FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein and Paula Routly from Seven Days will be on the distinguished panel among others.

But the really good news is you can watch the goings-on from the comfort of your own home!

No, not on "Vermont's Own," WCAX-TV, but online - live - at www.cctv.org.

Cool.
