Re: “Burlington's Magnolia Bistro Shuts Down

What goes around comes around. Businesses addicted to low-wage jobs should die. Good riddance. (ps -did anyone else laugh out loud at the irony of an alcohol purveyor decrying addiction?)

Re: “'EatingWell' and 'Cooking Light' Magazines Are Merging

This seems like a strangely positive take on what is actually the layoff of 200 people from the parent company, and a general decline in food and cooking journalism over the last couple of years, including the fall of Lucky Peach and decimation of Saveur.

Re: “Updated: Stonecutter Spirits Hits a Legal Snag Opening New Bar

There are states in this country that will go back to archaic abortion laws should Roe v. Wade be overturned. This is the problem with laws that don't keep up with evolving social norms. A law with its roots in the age of Prohibition should be totally re-written and brought into the 21st century.

The whole country is full of byzantine regulations when it comes to distilled spirits. That's not just a Vermont problem.

No loss, he was well known in town as a lousy employer.

Re: “Dining on a Dime: Nomad Coffee (South End Station)

I strongly believe the disclaimers about Podhaizer should come at the start of the article, especially considering she wrote about Nomad three times in Seven Days before getting hired there. Also, food can be healthful, but not healthy.

Re: “Burlington's Magnolia Bistro Shuts Down

Not sure what's up here, I dumped facebook after they decided which opinions were "allowable " and which weren't.
apparently he just said what everyone was thinking, Including other junkies.
Addiction is a disease, it's not a substance disease, (well not only a substance disease), it's a disease of dis-connection from the world, from friends, from the local society, from one's self.
And surprise surprise, it's epidemic these days, or just out in the open.
when a guy just trying to make a business run, apparently paying substandard pay, otherwise he have a better class of people to chose from to hire,
when he complains it should open up dialogue, not be forced to move,
or as in facebook, silence them...
after all, addiction is a disease of separation, of not belonging.
