Re: “Burlington Police Will Investigate Claims of Abuse at St. Joseph's Orphanage

Thank you Winnie. It is amazing that those who yell the loudest about the presumption of innocence when there is an obvious criminal who is charged are the same who are willing to crucify those of faith who devoted their lives to making the world a better place and saving the lives of many based on unfounded reports from a half a century ago. Imagine the hurt felt by those wonderful nuns and priests who sacrificed much to do good for so many children.

In Vtdigger there is another article that is so telling about the horrors of politics in this day and time and how many of our elected has lost their way.…

Vermonts Attorney General, TJ Donovan, says he will specifically investigate crimes and abuses that allegedly occurred at St Joseph which has now been closed for some 44 years, matters which were the subject of dozens of lawsuits in the 90s. So, why now?

Without explanation he added: my sense is we will also look at some larger issues involved here. That is suspect since a Vermont State Police reports that, we have received no complaints or requests at this time. Im not a Catholic but see a danger to all people of faith. In this age of non-belief in God, intolerance of religious views is tolerated.

People of faith today are often marginalized and discriminated against. To be horrified and angry about past possible wrongs is ok, but for it to trigger a task force and press conference to announce an investigation of the entire Catholic Church is beyond the pale.

Could it be the AG is motivated by his future US Senate hopes and sees it as opportunity and a safe one at that?

Re: “Conservative Senator Peg Flory to Hang Up Her Spurs

Seems that Seven Days is not adhering to its stated position on moderation when you consider Roy's comments about this fine lady. Roy obviously does not know Peg, one of the finest legislators we have. Their policy does speak to what Peg is, and that is "classy". Thank you for your service Peg. I am happy for you but sad for us.

Re: “Vermont Legalization in Limbo After House Democrats Pull Pot Bill

Senator Sears needs not only listen to the medical people and organizations, the law enforcement community, educational leaders but now also the people who worked hard to send the message to their House members, who heard them, and were going to vote H.170 down. Senator Sears obviously knows more than doctors, police, educators and the people. Don't you get it Dick?

Re: “Outta Town: Vermont's Congressional Delegation Spends Recess Far From Home

We may not see them but isn't it nice to know that we have aristocracy that know how to give us the royal matter where they are, home or abroad. These three guys could be poster boys for the need for term limits, especially Patrick Leahy. Maybe next time! sigh!
