Snow Day in Vermont

Posted By on Fri, Mar 2, 2007 at 9:35 AM

Haven't been many this winter. This is  just the second one in the People's Republic of Burlington. I have a doctor's appointment at 10 a.m. downtown. That's the Freyne Land Alley all shoveled by the columnist fighting the cancer with the chemistry.

Not going to catch Cindy Sheehan in Sen. Vince Illuzzi's tent in Montpeculier at noon. Assuming she makes it in from Chicago. It's bad weather all the way.

Commander Dave put the word out via email shortly after 4 a.m. that the Statehouse is going to try to dodge the storm:

All Staff:

The House worked late last night andadjourned until Tuesday, March 13th. (No Session on Friday) Friday, theSenate will go on the floor at 10:00am. PLEASE, keep us posted on any cancellations of your Friday meetings,as we (Sgt at Arms & Capitol Police) end up fielding all the phone callsand inquiries from people coming in the doors.
Dave Janawicz  3-2-07Chief of Capitol Police

What a guy!

Cindy's son was an American soldier who gave his life in George "WMD" Bush's anti-American War in Iraq. And yet, there are bozos out there who compare Cindy Sheehan to Jane Fonda of Vietnam War-era fame.

Sheehan is a Gold Star Mother ferchrissakes.

George Bush and Dick Cheney were draft-dodgers.

Such is life.
