Tuesday Sundown

Listening to House Speaker Gaye Symington and Senate Boss Peter Shumlin on VPR with Bob Kinzel.

Exciting, eh?

Think there's a "future governor" on the program?

OK, how about Kinzel?

Didn't catch it all. Did catch Shummy making the heartfelt, patriotic, we can save the planet, global warming pep talk. We've only got 8-10 years to get off the oil dependancy, he says.

Shummy says he "finds it curious that Gov. Douglas will fly to China [in June] to tell the Chinese how to do efficiency, but he won't be creative and expand efficiency at home."

Spent the day working on "Inside Track" for Wednesday's edition of Seven Days. Had some fun. Had what one might call an "evolving" impeachment story involving our distinguished congressman. Never say "never."

Hey, where else can one see colorful houses like these?

Snapped this one on North Winooski Avenue, just north of North Street.

Missed the Ch. 3 Six O'Clock News, but they just posted it. This one was a wee bit curious:

Rutland wants a former city attorney to return the laptop he wasissued. The city sent a letter to Christopher Sullivan giving him aweek to return the computer. Some believe it contains legal informationthat the city needs. The board of aldermen acknowledges that Sullivansigned a contract during the Jeff Wennberg administration that says hecan keep the laptop. But the Board says the former mayor did not havethe right to give away the computer.

Really?

Wennberg [right]. the former mayor is currently Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Conservation in the Agency of Natural Resources.

AND, would you believe his name has popped up in the last week in conversations about who the Republicans have to take on Peter Welch in the 2008 U.S. House race?

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