Re: “Amuse at the Essex Culinary Resort & Spa

Underwhelming food
The food was fine but it wasn't worth the drive or the price. I was expecting something more unique, more like a Kitchen Table or Hen of the Wood dining experience. As it was, the whole place is a little too pretentious for me, and as Le Cirque in NY is one of my favorite restaurants, that is really saying something. Food: 2 Ambiance: 3 Service: 4

Re: “As Outbreak Spreads, Holcombe Questions Zuckerman's Vaccination Stance

We eradicated measles and polio because of vaccines. Until an anti-vaxxer explains how the risk of polio is less than the risk from allergies and vaccinating against it, I’ll never accept their arguments.

Ice cream kills some small percentage of people, that doesn’t mean it’s inherently dangerous. Historians will weep writing about remarkable and miraculous medical advances that were rejected due to ignorance, propaganda, and intolerance. I weep for humanity being dragged back by those seeking to appease the one percent who were harmed by vaccines and medicines that saved the rest of us. If you’re waiting for a cure that never does any harm, you will wait forever.

Re: “Rough Francis Drummer's Coronavirus-Themed Nirvana Cover Goes Viral

Urian Hackney and other artists using their creative genius to deal with this insanity is a silver lining to the idiocy and incompetence of the federal government. Thank you Mr Hackney, it isn’t at all a silly video and redditors, music aficionados and Kurt Cobain fans across the world love your work!

Re: “Why Are There So Many New Banks in Chittenden County?

There really ought to be a journalism award for excellence in final sentences. Outstanding acerbic humor and word play, bravo Mr. Picard.

Re: “Progressives Knock Off Incumbents, Take Majority on Burlington City Council

Given losing Burlington Telecom, the giant pit downtown weeping critical tax revenue, tearing up city hall park, regular raw sewage releases into Lake Champlain, police gone bad, water main breaks, year-round car-wrecking black holes and crumbling roads, St Paul business-wrecking extended closure, and cutting off access to the bike path to an entire section of the city, it does seem that the inmates have taken over the asylum.

Burlington residents are paying high taxes and high salaries to city employees and getting screwed left and right, up and down. I pray the new city council can help lead us through the morass of incompetence engulfing our fair city.

Re: “Medical Records Cases Lead Feds to Huge Settlements — and Purdue Pharma's Doorstep

Thank you Owen Foster, along with so many of your colleagues working on behalf of our country. Many don't understand or appreciate the value of all the civil servants working quietly behind the scenes improving all our lives.

Unsung and unheralded as too many millions spin 'deep state' conspiracies, living in sour ignorance of all the vital functions, large and small, performed by public servants.

Thank you to the AUSAs and all worthy government employees, please know the majority appreciate the work you do.

Re: “Where on the Connecticut River Is the Vermont-New Hampshire Border?

I say we declare war, NH for centuries has been encroaching upon Vermonters' liberty and right to free determination and water rights. Who's with me, people?!

Re: “Mirabelles Is Moving to South Burlington

Losing Mirabelle popovers and omelets is a devastating blow for all who appreciate superlative breakfast. Please let’s all pray very hard for these treasured chefs to reconsider and offer some type of limited breakfast service in the future.
