Under the Dome Vets

Posted By on Tue, Mar 27, 2007 at 7:06 AM

Look at these two guys, will you?

I've been looking at them for 20 years!

This shot taken the other day in the Statehouse cafeteria. Nice place. Lots of "light."

On the left, Rep. David Deen (D-Westminister), chair of the House Committee on Fish, Wildlife & Water Resources.  A trout-fishing guide and protector of the Connecticut River and all things in Mother Nature's bosom.

Seated on the right, a veteran Statehouse business lobbyist, Gerry Morris. "The Gerr" has been working the building for 20 years with his sweet South Boston twang, flashing wit, and gift of the gab. Also an A-list of corporate clients (Vermont Yankee to Viagra to Budweiser and more), plus two talented female associates to lobby in the places he simply cannot go, if you know what I mean.

As "Morris the Cat," of Morris, DeMag & McCarty said with a smile, he and David Deen have never agreed on any bill!

Go get 'em, boys.

I'm here at the ranch all day - "Inside Track" Day - any last minute tips accepted before noon: 658-9555.

Interesting. Just noticed the Tuesday Freeps, aka The Burlington Free Press, is playing Democratic U.S. Rep. Peter Welch's upcoming, early April trip to Iraq and Afghanistan on Page One.

Over on Ch. 3 last night, Marsillyiss Parsons buried that story on the 6 O'Clock News. Vermont's only congressman heading to the war zone and it's not news in WGOP Land, eh?
