Don't Mess With the Model Horse Hobbyists! 

Freelance writer Alice Levitt went to the "Everything Equine" horse show last weekend and wrote about it for our column, Scene@, that appears in the Calendar section of the newspaper. Scene@ is a short little feature — 350 words or less. It's basically a first-person "being there" piece, so it has more "attitude" than a news story would. 

Well, the model horse hobbyists Alice mentioned in her write-up thought that she put a little too much attitude in her account. One of them started a thread at modelhorseblab.com called
"A good example of Ignorance towards this hobby (or any hobby really)"
 
There are 9 pages of angry replies, including one that ends thusly: "She's still a bitter dried up inside she-snake and woe to her if she steps foot in our barn." Whoa, Nelly!

Consequently, the "Everything Equine" Scene@ is the 6th most popular item on our website this week, and climbing. (Photo from the horse show by Matthew Thorsen.)

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
