Re: “Governor's Staff Emails: Burlington Mayor's Autopsy Request 'Does Not Feel Right'

While it's been quite a while since this episode originally aired, my recollection is that things don't end on a particularly high note for either Chief Wiggum or Mayor Quimby.

Re: “Sanders Takes On General Motors Near Shuttered Chevy Plant in Ohio

Be vewwy vewwy quiet ....... I'm hunting tax wetuwns.

Ssshhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ....... tappa tappa tappa ......... tappa tappa tap .......

Whoa - what's that?

sounds like a typewriter ..... tappa tappa tax return tapping late into the night o'er on Killarney Drive .......

Bernie's not home ..... he's out on campaign walk about in the Rust Belt:

Today I challenge Donald Trump: For once in your life, keep your campaign promises. ...."

Bernie's campaign promise: - "I will release ten full years of tax returns. Certainly before April 15, 2019"

....... tappa tappa ..... S'gotta be Jane, keepin' the lamps trimmed and burnin' back home ..... typin' and tax filin' late into the nite...... 'cause according to Bernie in 2016 - the last time he refused to release his tax returns - Jane does all their tax filings these days ..... tappa tappa tap .............

I swear Jane must be the busiest ex-ex-college president of 'em all in the presidential steno-pool ...... a busy ex-queen bee buzzin' and a typin' late into the night ................................... ten years of Bernie 'n Jane's tax returns ............................... as solemnly promised before April 15th .................... not like that lyin' lounge lizard Donald Trump ..............................................

Any minute now ............................................... as promised ...................... a decade of Bernie and Jane's tax returns .............. can you feel it? ....................... I can ........................ though the anticipation is like to damn near be killin' me ........................ain't nuthin' more sacred than Bernie's solemn sworn word to the peoples ............................. I can feel it in the air tonight ..................... any minute now ................. hold on ........................

Re: “Emails Detail Conflict in Choosing Burlington School Principals

Oh give me a home, where the Colonel once roamed,

And my kid's schools are top notch, they all say.

Where seldom is heard, implicit bias is the scourge,

And other finalists simul-hauled ass yesterday.

Re: “Exodus? Tenants Flee a Newly Built Burlington Apartment Complex

Without fail, some folks never bother to read the fine print in their leases!

"Warning: This apartment is sold by weight, not volume, as some settling of insulation, the building and its contents normally occurs following new Redstone construction. Trace amounts of warm air may be present, due to potential cross contact with Snyder Homes during manufacturing.

Please recycle. If seal is broken around windows, crumple up last weeks Seven Days and stuff into gaps."

Re: “Freeman Unseats Incumbent Knodell for Burlington City Council

Often in these tumultuous political times when embittered, fossiliferous incumbents are ousted from public office by an engaged and energized citizenry, their true feelings are spinelessly masked by gracious concession speeches that encourage all to put aside our differences and work together for the common good.

So kudos to Ms. Knodell for possessing the personal integrity and resolve to publicly share her personal petty outrage and petulant condescension in losing to her up-and-coming Progressive opponent by a huge margin for the second time in as many months!

Re: “Bernie Sanders' Campaign Account Tops $9 Million

Even the most cursory glance at the lead-in headshot of Bernie's thin mane of wispy white hair belies any claim by armchair practitioners of the tonsorial arts that Sanders acolytes are "smiling, cheering and stuffing [his] coiffures". Love him or loathe him, Bernie sports perhaps the least "stuffed coiffures" in all of Congress. That kind of authentic unkemptness cannot be bought for any amount of money.

Re: “Former Official: State Watchdog Helped Green Mountain Power, Not Vermonters

MWM seeking adventurous crony regulator for discrete LTR.

Experienced rate-payer sub and long-term bottom in the usurious utility rate-increase "scene". Now I'm getting the urge to move away from utility and government crony corruption kink, and seek a versatile FWB from the DPS to explore a more plain-vanilla, mutually-satisfying, alternative financial lifestyle.

Youll still get to peg me financially, as always, while watching grainy film clips of classic DPS utility rate hearing incest porn. I simply have an unfulfilled fantasy of experimenting with a smaller-sized GMP strapon!
