Re: “How Three Photographers View a Changing Vermont

I got "Vanishing Vermonters" via the initial Kickstarter, mostly to support Mr. Miller and his work -- his essays in VT Digger over the past few years have been outstanding.

The book turned out to be one of the very best I've read this year. I learned a great deal and highly recommend it.

Re: “Movie Review: 'Wonder' Promotes Kindness With Schmaltz

Counterpoint: I don't want to read reviews from people capable of enjoying movies for 5th graders.

Keep paying for Rick's popcorn and publishing his cantankerous dispatches from "the vast minority." Thank you.

Re: “Council Selects Schurz, ZRF to Buy Burlington Telecom

"Burlington has lost a lot of its global capital as being a leader in local economies."

Nobody talks like that outside of Burlington, Vermont.

Re: “Lawyer: DCF Shooter 'Erroneously' Released From Psychiatric Care Before Killing Four

After awhile, you have to wonder if our state government is even capable of measuring up to the responsibilities and demands we place on it.

Re: “Questions Arise About Heroic Response to DCF Worker Shooting

Really odd choice for a long story, bud.

Re: “How Drug Treatment Policies in Vermont Prisons Contribute to the Opiate Crisis

"He had been six years sober, but the DOC took him off his methadone in prison"

Dumb question: is methadone a life long treatment?

Also, why is that considered "sober" when you're still very much on drugs?

Re: “Judge Delays Decision in UVM Disorderly Conduct Case

"We want to send a strong message that this won't fly on our campus."

What won't fly, though? So much coverage on this with no indication of what was even said.
