Re: “Teen Charged in South Burlington Racist Graffiti Case

I think this dumb ass should be sentenced to removing graffiti from Burlington walls with a toothbrush. (30 consecutive days should wake him up.) BTW, he included a name which makes it a hate crime.

Re: “Mann Overboard? Critics Say New Vermont Judge Is Too Lenient

Who are we to judge? Did we see everything the Judge saw or heard. I know it's not fashionable in our dystopic Trump fueled current atmosphere to suggest that compassion, empathy, respect for people in distress, etc. are all lumped together as "fake news." Wow, a judge who rules on the merits and the facts and is not part of the current fear hysteria. Wonder what the crime statistics in her jurisdiction are like. I bet they don't show the societal breakdown all these critics assume. God Bless her.

Re: “Seriously: Bluffy the Budget Slayer, The Garden of Weedin', To Perv and Protect

With regard to the airport roof, why don't they put in solar panels for them to neglect.

Re: “Vermont Considers Dumping Dorothy Canfield Fisher Over Ties to Eugenics Movement

The term Eugenics is much too broad, as a result it used to revise history and punish the reputations of dead people. Racehorses are the result of Eugenics as are the hundreds of dog breeds. The fact that the Nazis adopted it as rationale for racial profiling has denigrated those who believe only in genetics. In fact, Genetic Counseling is today a respected profession. Boy is that fascist.

Re: “Singing 'Stuck in Vermont' at Waking Windows [SIV489]

Just what the world needs most; another Vermont song that doesn't rhyme with anything!
But, it gives us an Emmy quality video by my favorite documentarian.

Re: “Montpeculiar: Allô Montpelier!

Are there still French speaking native Vermonters in rural Vermont? Back in the '70's I slid into a ditch on a backwoods dirt road near Waitsfield Vermont. I found a farmhouse with a French speaking family who fed me dinner before rescuing my car. I referred to them as French Canadians but was told that they were French Vermonters. I tried to find their house again but never could. Vive Vermont.

Re: “Norwich Students Win National Contest for Counterterror Tool

I'm just a little queasy about some of the tactics, which, as history has shown, may have a tendency to grow and even become fear driven draconian sanctions. There is a danger of authoritarian over-reach.
