Re: “Burlington Won't Pursue Legal Action Over Trump's Unpaid Bill

Topeople saying "Bernie should pay for his rallies" etc., I don't think you understand; he was not invoiced for his rallies because (in VT) he has used public spaces and hasn't closed down Main Street or required the involvement of dozens of additional police officers, cruisers, and canine units. And he *did* have to pay at Essex for the Super Tuesday rally, and I believe that bill has been paid. It very much *is* Drumpf's fault that he gave out so many tickets. Also, he is (according to him) worth $billions, so he should probably just cough up a couple $thousand and not look like such a carpetbagger. That said, it is also true that *way* more protesters showed up than Drumpf supporters, and that put some pressure on the security.

Re: “Winooski Bistro's Bacon Sign Ignites Internet Storm

I don't believe this is insane on both sides. The woman is overly-sensitive and extremely self-important, but probably not insane. And Sneakers made a world-wise decision, even if people around here aren't able to accept it. As a longstanding and respected member of the burgeoning Winooski service industry, their job first and foremost is to provide delicious food to their many, many patrons. Their job is not to engage in politics. If the business' energy is diverted from food to politics, the food quality and customer service will undeniably falter and everyone, EVERYONE, is worse off for it. Marc made the right choice by extricating himself from the political, non-food discussion, and he's made that stance and justification very clear. The vitriol that has been sparked by this benign and common-sense move is indicative that Winooski, VT is suffering from some serious, serious growing pains, and I am ashamed of residents (and non-residents) who have assaulted Sneakers with their foul language and a lack of support.
