Re: “Drifter's

Best food for the best price in town . Creative without being overly "foodie" . The patio wasn't yet open when we were there . Hope to enjoy it when we return .

Re: “Moran Redux? Officials Present New Plan for Burlington Landmark

Well Wolfgang , we've positively determined it will maybe probably cost somewhere between half a million and 10 million to demolish this eyesore . Is it possible that this "city study" number is deliberately high so that we can all hold hands and say this is a win win ? Regardless, tear it down . Can't handle a few more decades of this discussion .

Re: “Bernie Sanders Raises Nearly $1 Million in Under Six Weeks

Well Lucas , I like Bernie much more than you do but still a clever comment . I was thinking that if you changed a few nouns and adjectives , changed leftist sheep to right wing mouthbreathers , you'd have Trump and his supporters .

Re: “Our Towns: Can Rural Vermont Communities Survive in the Age of Amazon and Act 46?

Great and valuable series . A small quibble is the title . Act 46 is not the cause but the effect of the shrinking of the school age population . A second quibble is the the limited analysis or conjecture you did on the causes of rural Vermont's depopulation . Your reporting on the effects was superb .

Re: “Madaila Band Member Charged With Defacing Burlington Mural

"Maiers band, a quintet that enjoyed a meteoric rise through the last several years"
Seriously ? Meteoric ? Is this sarcasm ? Perhaps this was just a cheap publicity stunt for a never-was band .

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

Perhaps cwinklem is correct and some employees are dramatically underpaid . My suggestion is get rid of a good quarter of the staff and pay the remainder much more. Every time I visit I see so many useless , lazy disinterested workers . There are also many helpful hard workers . Is part of the diversity goal to hire so many useless people ? Perhaps Tashiro should focus on competency when hiring instead of social engineering .

Re: “To Tip or Not to Tip, to Post or Not to Post? Monarch & the Milkweed Stirs Controversy

justoneview - One more reason ? Like the fact that it's terribly overpriced .

Re: “Movie Review: A Genre Mash-Up Doesn't Make for Fun in J. J. Abrams' 'Overlord'

So Abrams neither wrote or directed (nor acted in) this movie . So why spend the bulk of this review talking about him ?
