Re: “'Camp Hell': Vermont Inmates Report Threats by Guards in Pennsylvania

I suppose I should be more sympathetic to the plight of Mr. Wool, but I'm not. I have a hard time considering they're victims within considering their victims.

Re: “#HerToo: Middlebury Student in Trouble Over List of Accused Sexual Transgressors

While no one should condone sexual assault or protect those who perpetrate it, is it not possible that the male who assaulted Ms Dunn was every bit as drunk as she? In which case would she not be equally as liable?
Also I suspect that her list could and most likely does include some wrongfully.
I had a nasty breakup during my college years and could envision landing on a similar 'list' as a means of revenge by the person with whom I broke up.
Some of those listed may now be wondering where they go to get their reputations back.

Re: “South Burlington Student's Post on 'White Fragility' Goes Viral

"It is a well-documented psychological phenomenon." Dear Young Mr Hines, with all due respect, my graduate and post graduate studies revealed no such well-documented phenomenon. Were I cynical I might think that you may be enjoying your 15 minutes of fame (also not a well documented, but commonly assumed psychological phenomenon), but I am not.

Re: “Freshmen Revolt: Why Did 16 Democrats Break With Their Party?

"He said he voted for Scotts proposal because it would address his constituents concerns about property taxes." What a concept, voting the wishes of the people who elected him. There may be hope yet.

Re: “Walters: Zuckerman Won’t Pick a Fight, But He’s Ready for One

Kudos to Mr. Walters for holding out on 'ponytailed' until the last paragraph.

Re: “The Parmelee Post: Fish & Wildlife Board Appoints Ted Nugent as Honorary Chair

"Arts + Life >> Humor," maybe a little more emphasis on the last word would be nice.

Re: “State Auditor Doug Hoffer Wants to Keep His (59th) Job

I don't think I've ever voted for a 'Progressive Party' candidate for any office prior to Mr. Hoffer. His dedication to the data and non-partisan approach is what is exactly needed in the Auditors office.
