Re: “Panera Bread Closing on Church Street

Hopefully the local stores that are going to step in to replace these chains will provide the same quality, service, selection, and price, but that's probably wishful thinking.

Re: “Walters: Ex-Freeps Editor Finds a Friend on Fox News

A bigoted journalist who didn't have enough self control to adhere to the ethical precepts of his employer and his profession found a friend on Fox News? Now there's a surprise! LOL!

Re: “Media Note: Top Burlington Free Press Editor Fired After Controversial Tweets

How can it be amazing to him? Really? This is a surprise? Surely he cannot be so unintelligent and so tone-deaf that he could think tweeting the things he did would not lead to being fired. Somebody that lacking in reading the pulse of the community he serves has no business running a newspaper that serves that community. I suspect he's in the wrong profession, and I have no doubt that he is in the wrong place.

Re: “AG Sessions Threatens Burlington, State Over Immigration Policies

Threats from a racist southern bully who has spent most of the week lying to a Congressional committee.

Re: “The Thin Red, White and Blue Line: Vermonter Wins Prize Of Arguable Merit

Don Chioffe. Islamaphobic bigot? If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.

Re: “McAllister Gets Probation, Not Prison, for Prostitution-Related Charge

Naturally he didn't get prison. He's a wealthy, well-connected member of state government. There is one set of laws for people like him and one set for the rest of us. You can bet that if he had been poor or unconnected to the state establishment he would have seen the inside of a jail cell. Vermont state government: just as corrupt as every other government with ten times the hypocrisy.

Re: “Burlington Activist Takes Aim at 'White Supremacist' Mural

There's a difference between an activist and a crank. An activist, if he has a case to make, would do so through local news media and through proper channels. It's not as if the local authorities around here are deaf to the voices of activists; they bend over backwards for anyone with a cause, and especially so if they perceive the cause to be a liberal/progressive one. A crank, which is what this lunatic is, just takes matters into his own hands and then does something stupid like vandalizing public property. Seven Days should know better than to dignify this old coot with the label "activist." He's an unbalanced zealot, who does the cause he purports to support absolutely no good, as you can see by the right-wing commenters who are out in droves as a result of his lunatic actions. Why hasn't he been arrested?
