Re: “The Spice Traders' Kitchen

Meh. The banh mi did not look like the picture recently featured in 7 Days, even though I made sure to order the one they'd featured. We also waited way too long, and in fact watched a number of people come in, order takeout, and leave with their food before we were finally served (about 45 minutes after we ordered). The banh mi was okay. The noodle dish my partner got was pretty good - but not great. Honestly it was the disorganization and the wait that really soured it for me. Not sure we'll go back.

Re: “Group Condemns Calls to Block Syrian Refugees

We pick up the tab, and I'm happy to do so. Our finances aren't in shambles because of refugees - it's because Republicans are fond of cutting taxes on those who most need to pay them: corporations and the very wealthy people who already benefit from those corporations.

On the other hand, an influx of immigrants often helps to fuel economic growth, because they bring new ideas and skills to a population. I for one would find Burlington boring and would be less likely to live here if we didn't have the various new immigrant populations here that we do--and most of these folks were introduced through the Refugee Resettlement program.

So yes, we pick up the initial tab, and we are payed back with interest.

Re: “Burlington School Officials Avoid Deficit but Keep Mum on Details

How are they being secretive? This reporter is digging (her job, but still as readers it's our job to be critical thinkers). The signs are all positive, and we have no reason to worry as of yet. It's good to be vigilant considering what's happened in the past, but you can't ask people to share findings with you when those findings aren't finalized. That's a business standard, and it's meant in part to help correct for some of the sloppiness of the past. Relax, people. By all means, stay engaged, but know that we're dealing with entirely new people here. Why conflate past mistakes with their new approach?
