Re: “Scott Vetoes Gun-Purchase Waiting Period, Signs Abortion Bill

Why does Vermont have a republican governor? Two reasons really. One is that Shumlin was not liked and did a poor job. The second is that outside of Chittenden county and a few other small pockets, Vermont is a very conservative state.

Re: “Piss Poor: Burlington Mulls Proposals for More Public Bathrooms

I guess it is up to the individual businesses if they want to open their bathrooms to the public. Way back when I worked for a business on Church Street we had an open restroom policy because everyone was considered a potential customer. The insurance policy excuse seems flimsy at best. Own up to turning away a little girl who needed to pee. In the end, it would be nice not to put the onus onto the business owners.

Re: “Champlain Parkway Construction Could Begin by Year's End

Assuming it gets completed, how long before it becomes a toll road?

Re: “New Airport Noise Map Is Not Expected to Lead to More Home Demolitions

I am not worried about the nukes. I think Trump can negotiate peace between North and South Burlington. The planes on the other hand, I can do without them. A plane that big and loud is way too much for that little airport.

Re: “24-Hour Handgun Waiting Period Clears Vermont House

The flip side of the domestic abuse coin is the fact that those who commit domestic abuse do not necessarily want to and in a fit of rage are not going to stop to logically consider his/her partner might have a gun purchased inside of the 24-hour waiting period.

Re: “After Weed Legalization, Burlington Police Search Cars Less Often

Fewer searches will hopefully lead to more equitable treatment for black drivers, del Pozo said.

Is this an actual quotation from del Pozo? If so it marks an odd progression of this story and a strange attitude about probable cause and equitable treatment of citizens from del Pozo. After all, shouldn't the chief of police have a bigger impact on how drivers are treated than marijuana laws?
