Re: “Yangser Dorjee’s Himalaya Restaurant

Himalaya is a great new lunch spot for the downtown crowd. It is spacious with views of the water (if you look beyond the old warehouse-type buildings), and there is plenty of seating to go around. I had a combination of 6 momo, two of each variety (beef, chicken, and vegetarian). They were just the right mix of savory and spicy, and the red sauce that accompanied them added a wonderful zing. The service was fast and attentive, and it was easy to get in and out within an hour and get back to the office (although I'm sure a more leisurely meal would have been possible). To sum up: 5 stars!

Re: “Holcombe Hires Out-of-State Campaign Team

The treasurer of a campaign doesn't typically do anything of consequence, so really there are no Vermonters on the team. That's a bad look for a candidate here, especially one going up against the Vermontiest governor we've had a in a while.

Imagine if The Lorax wasted his time on nonsense like this.

Re: “Vermont State Police Won't Investigate Champlain Valley Dispensary

There should not be any such thing as "internal dialogues" between regulators and the companies that they regulate.

Re: “Brian Wilson Cancels Burlington Discover Jazz Festival Performance

Maybe a sign that the Jazz Fest organizers should be looking to book headliners that are on the rise and currently putting out music...?

Re: “State Dismisses Charges in Meat-Cleaver Murder, Two Other Cases That Used Insanity Defenses

Yes, DMH will make determinations as to whether these defendants pose a danger to the community. That's exactly what would happen if they were found not guilty by reason of insanity. And that's what WOULD happen if the SA's office took the case to trial, because they hired experts to offer opinions that the defendants weren't insane, and the experts wouldn't do that - they agreed with the defense. It would be unethical and a waste of taxpayer money for the SA's office to go to trial WITHOUT an expert witness to say the defendants were not insane.

Re: “State Dismisses Charges in Meat-Cleaver Murder, Two Other Cases That Used Insanity Defenses

This story seriously downplays the necessary context for these dismissals. The State conferred with the Department of Mental Health, which said that it would continue to detain and treat these Defendants until they are no longer a harm to the community (which could be never), and that it makes no difference to them whether there is a not guilty by reason of insanity verdict or a dismissal because of insanity. Bottom line: they're going to be detained indefinitely, so long as they're a danger to the community.
