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: “Vermont Supreme Court Overturns KKK Flyers Conviction

The author seems to implicitly suggest that Judge Dooley's vote is illegitimate because of his retirement . Judges should decide on cases that have been argued before them . It's not only correct, it is admirable .

Re: “Vermont Restaurant Diaries: Seven Writers Dish on Dinners

I enjoy reading all of Seven Days departments but the truth is the food section is my special favorite dessert . This article is extra wonderful except now I'm hungry . Yumm .

Re: “Committed: A Son's Mental Illness, a Father's Fight

Sad . Nothing but sad .
I understand that there are no villains here but can't understand why the entire apparatus seems determined to NOT allow family to help their loved ones through mental health crises .Why do the state medical/legal/social agencies work so hard to push the families away ?

Re: “Sean Hannity's Real Estate Empire Includes Okemo Condo

I'm thrilled . Let Hannity continue to buy property for over 2 million that more then a decade later is worth significantly less then half of that . Why he sounds like perfect Trump cabinet material .

Re: “Selling the Herd: A Milk Price Crisis Is Devastating Vermont's Dairy Farms

Well Susan I have no connection with the dairy industry . Unlike yourself , I have no personal bias being a Quebecer who loves and has lived in Vermont . You clearly don't know anything about the politics of this province . Although the rural population is low and getting lower , they retain their political power . These rural ridings usually hold the balance of power in elections . Therefore crossing the farm lobby , specifically the dairy farmers is political suicide . They have harmed Quebec with their out sized clout .
As for the US , perhaps the corporate agribusiness lobby here does have more influence then the dairy farmers . I do believe that any farmer who continues to solely reply on milk for income will suffer . As well detailed in this article , many have been proactive and diversified into various value added products . Perhaps they figure a pity party is not very productive .
