Re: “Moooving Scene on Church Street: PETA Activists Say No to Cow's Milk

If everyone stopped drinking milk (what about milk products, butter, cheese, etc.?) millions of dairy cows would no longer be needed and would be slaughtered. Is that PETA's goal? Let's face it, PETA members are fanatics, they will find things to complain about with no thought to the unanticipated consequences. If they don't drink milk and eschew milk products, that's alright with me; but get off my back.

Re: “Papers, Please: The Feds Reach Deeper Into Vermont

Why don't you file a FOIA query to determine how many people do they ask, and how many dangerous illegals they apprehend. Also Geographical data if any. I think it's just a make work for ICE. If it were effective they'd be bragging from the tree tops. At least Dumbo would.
BTW I'm a German Jewish Holocaust survivor. I left Germany with my parents when I was three; when I was 6 and living in NY the Nazi's revoked my citizenship. This is beginning to smell like then. Never Again! Never! Not here!

Re: “Walters: Environmentalists Object to Scott Climate Panel Choice

When I look at the "pristine" ridgeline I don't see many wind turbines, but I see miles of wide clear cut channels for power lines and new ones being cut every day. Why is one type of environmental destruction acceptable while a less intrusive one isn't? There's no discussion about the scars from the power lines in our forests while the idea of one turbine drives the low information folks nuts!

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.
