Re: “Former Rutland Mayor's Son Killed in Gunfight With Police

I agree with GiZzY67 about the photo choice, and "defeated" would have sufficed -- "ousted" and "trounced" are neither pertinent to the story nor sensitive, under the circumstances.

Re: “Vermont Dems Uncover More Alleged Embezzlement, File Police Report

It's bizarre that Batham was given the chance to confess to the rest, and didn't ... did he really think it wouldn't be discovered? How does an embezzler's mind work? Is it similar to that of pathological liars, who create their own reality and believe their own lies? Betrayal of trust hurts the most when no responsibility is taken.

Re: “Movie Review: Seth Rogen Can't Make the Unlikely Romance of 'Long Shot' Work

Chemistry isn't always about typical physical attraction (for example, sapiosexuals find intelligence sexy) but is also about emotional connection and that feeling that somebody "gets" you.

I felt that positive, sweet, good energy between Theron and Rogan in this movie, as well as in several video interviews with them discussing the film. More than a romcom, "Long Shot" is about believing in oneself and being true to oneself -- a "feel-good" film for our troubled times.

Re: “Burlington Council Hears Updates on Kilburn Case, Mall Development


Does the CityPlace project qualify for the Opportunity Zone fund designed for "low-income" urban and rural areas? Would be interesting to find out.

Re: “More Lonely Vermonters Are Falling for Relationship Scams

Great article but I disagree with the headline that "lonely" people fall for relationship scams. Anyone can fall for a scam or an imposter, and people on dating sites are not necessarily "lonely" just because they are looking for a partner. In fact, psychologists say the best time to attract a mate is when you're NOT feeling lonely but instead are radiating the same kind of energy you desire in a relationship.
