Re: “Filipino Cuisine Comes to St. Johnsbury

i give this place six months to a year
if its open next Oct it would surprise me
st j is where restaurants go to die
the mexican place - good example - got all sorts of great press -
decent prices, decent enough food - and
a cuisine Americans are familiar with and which is successful all over the country -
what happened ? it bit the dust in less than a year -
this place - no chance -
i checked out the menu the other day when i passed by - i think just about every dish had pork in it
there might have been one or two that were maybe vegetarian
i am doubtful this place makes it
there is not enough critical mass in that area to support this place -

Re: “Trump-Bashing, Romney-Advising Political Operative Stuart Stevens Finds Himself in Vermont

way too long and not interesting enough - why wasn't this edited down?
who really cares this much about some political consultant in vermont??
better would have been more on the terrible, lousy, no good, crummy folks this dude helped put into office -
just cause trump hates him is not enough of a reason to like this scum bag
and paul - you should pay some writer's fine for using "abode" as a verb - awful - just dreadful - (he abodes in NH . . .) - what were you thinking?? does 7 days employ editors ?? it seems not

Re: “Notorious Transient Accused of Assaulting Burlington Business Owner

three words - Lock him up.
let this drain on society dry up in prison
for a nice long time -
i bet that would make him pretty unhappy - and do his liver a favor
it boggles my mind that he can be arrested 117 times and have 31 convictions
and he then assaults someone and gets released ! again
mental illness, alcoholism - who cares
he should not be on the street
there should be some punishment or consequences for his actions
releasing him sends a message that there are zero consequences to actions

Re: “Leahys in Love: A Senator and His Spouse Weather Cancer

I thought this was perhaps the weakest FG column Walters has done.
Why did 7 days think a full page of their political column devoted to the Ls marriage and MLs 14 year old cancer diagnosis was newsworthy.
Really, who cares? Or who cares that much? A full page? BORING! What is the relevance? Maybe this belonged in the 7 days love issue in February. This is suppose to be where you go for the weekly CURRENT VT political news. I kept thinking why is he writing this long long piece on these two and their relationship and her cancer scare that is over a decade in the past???
I suppose late August is a very slow news period. Question for 7 Days: Where was his editor on this? The editor should have called BS on this and told Walters to hack this down or find something relevant to write about.

Re: “Letters to the Editor (8/9/17)

Mr Duquette's letter would be laughable if it werent so absurd. I am not shedding any tears for Mosher. What Duquette leaves out is that Mosher had his bulls loose on Rt 4 multiple times before this crash. He was warned, he chose to do nothing. He was even warned that evening he had someone come to his house and wake him up and tell him about his bull on Rt. 4 what did he do? He want back to bed! Explain that behavior. Duquette is actually blaming the victim? Hes going over the speed limit on Rt. 4 a major road so hes partially to blame?! Its so ugly and really despicable that he places the blame on this poor man who did nothing wrong besides hit a huge animal that the owner had repeatedly let get out of his fencing. The real tragedy besides this accident is that Mosher didnt do some jail time. I can only hope he (and not his insurance company) got hit for everything hes worth. He is a menace letting his animals roam loose and doing nothing.

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

this is so terribly sad -
it boils down to one single word
he is profoundly uneducated
you can't be even marginally educated and think this way
he is just another sad, loser white dude working (or not working now) in some dead-end low wage loser job
plus he's got the terrible after effects of those stupid ear things
he doesn't have enough money (or health insurance) to have some desperately needed cosmetic surgery to fix his ears
to think there are angry, loser white dudes like this all over the country -
they think immigrants are the problem -
it's all about lack of education
that is what fuels his hate -
i feel sorry for him
