Re: “Obituary: William Marquess, 1954-2020

Will was the sweetest and wisest man I've met in years. We were blessed to have him in our group at the Burlington Writers' Workshop, which I've attended for the last year or two. He is missed by all.
Rest easy, friend. Mimsy were the borogoves.

Re: “Burlington Police to Ticket People Who Violate Stay-At-Home Order

Jim, that skateboard park needs some oversight! That is ridiculous - and you noticed before the police?
Where are the police? Checking on what? Maybe if they talk (friendly talk) to the skaters they can reason with them AND ALSO see if anyone knows about the new graffiti craze in town.
Is this news to the Police?
Do they know there IS a skateboard park???

Re: “Pandemic Grounds Some Commercial Flights but F-35s Continue to Prowl Skies

Many dislikes - people sure like those F-35s - I wonder if they too are in the flight zone? If not, how can you judge what people should put up with?
No one will bomb us, the planes don't Work yet, and they are astoundingly expensive. Let's use the money for protecting the citizens. Do I think there'll be a war for which we need these things?
No, sorry.

Re: “Burlington Police to Ticket People Who Violate Stay-At-Home Order

There may be inherent evil on both sides - anarchy vs. total oversight. I don't think we need to be extreme - somewhere in-between. I don't think this decree is as dangerous as the Virus. I don't believe anyone will be imprisoned over this - they're simply warned, in effect, and that in itself isn't evil. I hope no one is even fined.
No witches, no witch-hunt.

Re: “Burlington Police to Ticket People Who Violate Stay-At-Home Order

EAO - why be agist? You say that all people a certain age (an 18-year span in the case of "boomers") have a certain attitude?
Do You want to be responsible for the behavior of everyone your age? I'm guessing not. So cut it out.
When you get older, you'll see everyone is a person - they don't represent a group.
Kids nowadays...(see?)

Matt will not give in. Patrick will not give in. Public debate is alive. Hope we all stay that way too.

Defenders of the Free -
We don't need basketball games - it's a contact sport - do you know much about epidemics?

As far as those kids in the market - it might help to tell Management - they are not Thinking, that's all. They do what they are used to doing, and haven't re-thought it all yet. Hope they don't make anyone SICK. I have no problem with waking people up.

People shouldn't feel persecuted for helping slow the epidemic/pandemic. Basketball can wait.
