Re: “What's Up With Burlington's Phallic Mushroom Sculpture?

The Stonehenge-like sculpture near the Moran Plant was removed (I think) because it basically wasn't pretty nor comfortable to rest on. What should have been saved were the 200 trees surrounding the Moran Plant which were taken down when the City started renovating the bike path. Trees are good! They weren't in the way, and we need more trees around town. They make for a more livable city - more pedestrian-friendly too. The mushroom is okay in my book. Many mountains and hills look like breasts - such is life.

For those in the know, it is a Pokemon Gym, which makes it priceless in my mind. I battle there occasionally too

Re: “WTF: How Can Private Parking Lots Issue Tickets?

The lot behind the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is managed by these people. Who would pay $4 a hour there and leave a car with the lot of vagrants and drunks who hang out there in the evenings. For the privilege of paying $4 an hour, will UPP patrol the lot and keep my car safe? I doubt it.

Re: “WTF: How Can Private Parking Lots Issue Tickets?

So it's legal for anyone to boot someone's car if they don't pay them? This is called extorsion, right?

UPP supposedly prefers booting to towing, yet they've towed three cars in Vermont and haven't booted any?

Re: “What's Up With That Wild Yard on Shelburne Road?

More and more people are using their yards for gardens and orchards. Times have changed, yards have changed, and the gardens and orchards are practical and functional.

Re: “What's Up With That Wild Yard on Shelburne Road?

Mowed lawns are a big part of the pollution problem in Lake Champlain. This place looks fine and there are MANY beautiful options to maintain a front yard without mowing it that are aesthetically pleasing and beneficial to wildlife, people, and water. More people should do this. It looks more interesting than a boring piece of turf.

Re: “Why Are There Suddenly So Many Rabbits?

We just spent a week in Boston. The busy hospital and college district had several rabbits. Go figure!

Re: “What Is That White Dome on a Hill Overlooking St. Albans?

A good friend of mine was an airman at this radar site in 1961-1962. Trained as an electronic technician at Keesler Air Force Base in Mississippi, he often regaled us with stories of his duty at the Dome.

For 8-hour shifts, he sat at a large CRT screen watching for blips (Soviet aircraft) coming south through the Arctic Circle. He took the job seriously for about a month before realizing it was a fool's mission. That's when the fun began. He and his buddies soon discovered a way to patch into AT&T telephone lines from the USAF secure communications network. He estimated he spent 2-3 hours a day talking to girl friends and fellow airmen at other Domes. He and a computer savvy buddy at a Dome site in New York used their monitors and telephones to daily play an early version of online chess.

To this day whenever I see the white dome on the horizon, I am reminded not just of the Cold War, but also of the ingenuity of young men and women who used their native intelligence and wits to pass the time away.

Re: “What's With Burlington's Solar-Powered Trash Cans?

This bin also prevents people from rummaging for discarded food or other useful items.
Let's face it- Nothing makes rich people more uncomfortable than seeing a hungry person searching for sustainence. Now you can't even have what we have thrown away!
I do hope these reduce litter & garbage spillage; my hope with this post is this: if u can't finish the food you bought- next time consider buying one for someone much less fortunate. It will be more appreciated & you will feel better too!

Re: “Why Does Seven Days Allow Anonymous Commenting?

I applaud Seven Days for allowing anonymous comments. In an era where angry protesters think it is their right to picket someone's home if they hear something they don't like, it allows people to voice their opinion without fear of reprisal. Can anonymous posting be misused or abused? Of course. But Seven Days can delete anything that's not civil. We already have enough censorship from media outlets like Vermont Digger.
