Re: “Cash or Trade Reimagines the Secondary Ticket Market

It strikes me as unfortunate that the acronym for Cash or Trade (CoT) is so similar to the acronym for Burlington's Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS). If you are going to use an acronym, I think some consideration should be given to not trespassing on existing organizations' brands.

Re: “Media Note: The Hardwick Gazette Is For Sale for 400 Words

"You Could Own a Newspaper for the Reasonable Price of 400 Words or Less"
I hope that whoever takes over the paper knows that the headline should read "...400 Words or Fewer".

Re: “'Bernie Sanderswitzky' Steals the Show on 'Saturday Night Live'

Quote: "David appeared as Sanders in a "Curb"-style digital short called, "Bern Your Enthusiasm." Though the candidate himself was absent from the sketch, David more than filled his shoes." Actually Larry David inserted his own TV germaphobic curmudgeon persona into Sanders' shoes. While it was funny, it was not legitimate satire. It was nothing like Tina Fey's satire of Sarah Palin, which skewered things that Palin actually did and said. David's sketch was pure fiction.
