Re: “What's Up With Burlington's Phallic Mushroom Sculpture?

The Stonehenge-like sculpture near the Moran Plant was removed (I think) because it basically wasn't pretty nor comfortable to rest on. What should have been saved were the 200 trees surrounding the Moran Plant which were taken down when the City started renovating the bike path. Trees are good! They weren't in the way, and we need more trees around town. They make for a more livable city - more pedestrian-friendly too. The mushroom is okay in my book. Many mountains and hills look like breasts - such is life.

Re: “Burlington Residents React to Latest City Hall Park Redesign

[We'd have to see what the parks in those cities were changed from and changed to, before we can have opinions on them.] City Hall Park needs help and maintenance, and public restrooms, but there's a lot to be said for keeping almost all its trees. This design has a few questionable elements which were considered last night. Many valuable views were heard. The city says it's going through a public process, and that's good. We could use a second opinion on a few things. Perhaps the old design is mostly okay. It should be kept up and made safe - everyone agrees on those things. But we may not need to remodel so expesively and expansively.

Re: “Trump Admin Axes Millions in Funding for Vermont Nonprofit

One more thing to fight him on. And Sessions announced another bad decision/reversal today. We better get those foxes out of the hen-house soon.

Re: “Vermont Leaders Make a Case for Opiate Prescription Data Transparency

The problem is not in the Medicare age people - chronic pain cripples many older residents. I don't think we're proving here that every doctor needs surveillance - it's much more important to follow up on the Doctors who over-prescribe for patients they hardly know.. Do all these states have the same general age-percentages as Vermont? "Per-opioid patient" seems an odd term for that chart that shows VT way way on the top. There are some facts in the article, and some spin which is independent of the facts.

Re: “Knodell to Serve a Third Year as Burlington City Council President

Pardon me, "AngryProg," but who's policing the discussion? You're really putting some time into this. That says something. I know a bit about the process here. I'm surprised to have "gotten your goat". Most folks I know have stopped commenting here because these discussions spiral into anger and annoyance. I saw the Disney clip on that link. Can we get back to the City Council? I have opinions, but I don't want to argue. Sincerely, Stick..
