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: “Young Gateway Farm Owners Build a Diversified Operation

What a smart, innovative and industrious couple. Thank you Seven Days for publicizing this wonderful story of a beautiful, modern family farm. I wish I could shake that loan officer's hand!

Re: “Exodus? Tenants Flee a Newly Built Burlington Apartment Complex

This is what happens when you choose quick and cheap contractors. I thought Redstone had higher standards, really sorry for the current and future tenants. On top of everything else the exterior is hideous.

Snyder is infamous for their quality standards, I continue to be amazed people buy their homes with all the word of mouth. And there is no such thing as new building syndrome, how ridiculous. New homes are desirable because they're brand new, built to current code, and thus are more efficient and livable than older houses.

Re: “Freeman Unseats Incumbent Knodell for Burlington City Council

DING DONG the witch is dead!! So, so happy Perri won!

Many people worked hard to oust Knodell, corruption has deep tentacles and requires constant vigilance to eradicate. Knodell threatened that she will run again, If so we will never stop fighting to make sure she keeps on losing elections along with the ability to further harm Vermonters. Congratulations Perri!!

Re: “Vermont House Passes Abortion-Rights Protections

This is the Vermont I know and love, thank you legislators for protecting women from extremist Christians and those who would impose their religious values on me. I won't keep them from genuflecting to their statues and monuments or talking to an invisible old white man in the sky, and they can keep their sanctimonious claws out of my body and my doctor's ability to care for me.

Pass one law restricting men's bodies or medical care, then those who've spent their lives trying to restrict women's medical care might gain some moral authority. Religious zealots have caused pain, misery, and death for thousands of years, with no end in sight. When they involve themselves in our government they need to start contributing and pay taxes. Nonprofit or religious exemptions need to be more restrictive, I'm politically active and I'm not alone in voting for legislators who agree these exemptions are too broad.

Re: “Healthy Living Plans Yet Another New Store, in Williston

Thanks for the reminder so I can swing by and stock up at Natural Provisions on Harvest Lane. Our community needs to make an effort to support the good guys or one day we'll look around at all the bad guys surrounding us and wonder what the heck happened to the neighborhood.

The thought of Wealthy Living wrapping its tentacles tighter around us gives me indigestion.

Re: “Walters: Abortion Rights Bill Headed for Floor Vote in the Vermont House

Extremist Christians terrorize more Americans than any Muslim ever has. The Handmaid's Tale is not a dystopian fantasy to these sick people, it's their dream future.

I will always prioritize the well being of living women over fetuses, as do the vast majority of decent people around the world.

Re: “Jafar Vows to Remain in Burlington Council Race Despite Sexist Tweets

I understand Jafar was raised in a misogynistic culture, the question is does that make him a good public servant? If he was white and had publicly joked about degrading black people he would've been thrown out, even by the republicans. If he had publicly joked about degrading native Americans, he would've been done.

I'm disgusted with the progressive party and I'm not voting for any progressive candidates this year. Women have put up with way too much crap for way too long. It's unbelievable we haven't even been able to vote for 100 years despite being the majority! Women deserve better.

Your character is determined by how you act when nobody is watching so your character sure as heck is revealed by how you act in public. I'm done going along with treating women as acceptable objects of abuse, humorous or not. I welcome all immigrants, I think they generally work harder and are a big reason America prospers and we all enjoy great art and cuisine. But Jafar is not acceptable as a representative for my people.
