Re: “UVM Medical Center Nurses to Return to Work Saturday

This article is so inadequate. Key issues are ignored or glossed over. For example, 24% over three years is catch up for a decade of stagnant wages (ranking 47th in nation), while exec salaries soared, hospital trustees signed a contract with Sinex to occupy high priced offices in the new towers downtown, and UVM Medical Center exceeded its net patient revenue budget (surplus) by $38.3 million. https://www.google.com/amp/s/vtdigger.org/…

Re: “Burlington City Council Votes to Re-Redesign City Hall Park

How was $700,000 spent? It could have created good jobs -- caretakers of City Hall Park, for example. It could have provided maintenance and repairs for the sidewalks and fountain, restored healthy soils for trees, lawn, and gardens, and added benches and game tables.

Re: “Public Safety Commissioner Casts Doubt on Claim of Arrest in China

Either there was an arrest, or there wasn't. Why so hard to find evidence? China isn't a third world country.

Re: “UVM Students Block Traffic to Pile Pressure on University President

Thanks to BLM for challenging an issue that the mainstream accepts as normal. Racism isn't going to disappear without confronting the system that institutionalizes it. Civil disobedience and boycotts are effective tools when negotiation fails. Negotiation that drags on indefinity wears everyone down. Get it done UVM. It's win win!

Thank you for not abandoning DACA. You are faithful to principles our country was founded on.

Re: “On Technicality, Sanders Delays Tax Bill's Passage

Let's see, Leahy (a lawyer) objected to the bill on grounds that no hearings were held (yawn). Bernie objected on legal grounds that nlified the vote. Something wrong with this picture?

Re: “Walters: Top Vermont GOP Official Backs Roy Moore

People in VT wringing their hands over Trump and Moore, saying WHAT CAN WE DO? can get busy and vote to defeat all Republicans until the party reforms itself. VT National Committeewoman supports Moore and Trump. She was chosen by those nice VT Republicans. NOT nice at all! Reject the party, the agenda, and the candidates no matter how nice they seem.
