Re: “Walters: Black Lives Matter Seeks Visibility

"I am Vermont Too" is more to the point than "Black Lives Matter," as ALL lives matter. BLM is divisive; "I am Vermont Too" is inclusive, assertive, and, in any and all instances and institutions where discrimination truly exists, should be a mantra.

Sadly, our opportunities for diversity are damped by our minuscule population, our nonexistent job opportunities and a Governor who's still in first gear -- all of which affect ALL Vermonters.

Job creation must be a priority for our Governor; proaction does not stop with election. Drive our state to win as you drove stock cars to win Thunder Road: People are much more important than trophies.

"Accelerate Vermont" should be our watchword, dammit. Put the pedal to the metal, Phil! Drive Vermont forward for all of us!

Re: “Scott Administration Opposes Vermont Marijuana Legalization Bill

I've had Multiple Sclerosis for 34 years; marijuana makes my life more functional and reduces chronic whole-body, 24/7 pain, and cuts the depression associated with chronic debilitation. Currently I've got to jump through hoops and pay $100/year to the VT Criminal(?) Information Center for designation as a medical marijuana patient.

Stop dithering like _Ma Kettle_ or _Lucy Ricardo_ and make it legal: Sell it, tax it (save for verified, PERMANENT medical exemptions, and control it in liquor outlets.

Right now, Killer Alcohol is the norm (e.g. Sen. Ted Kennedy, q.v.). A Vermont State Trooper, coincidentally remarked, "At worst, a pot smoker on the road -- without alcohol -- would slow traffic... and sit at an intersection waiting for the stop sign to turn green!"
Marijuana slows one down; eases pain; helps with depression and does NOT, as does hooch, turn drivers into uncontrolled, barely punished vehicular murderers.

Q.E.D.

The development of Federal and Vermont legislators is arrested in 1939's "Reefer Madness" mentality while many need alcohol rehab. It's about time they grew a pair and grew up!

Re: “Man Takes Aim at South Burlington High School's 'Rebels' Nickname

Jeezum Crow! Get a grip, people. We are a democracy, not the PC Police. One man with a hair in an uncomfortable place does not trump the wishes of the community; when he does, it's called tyranny.
