Kunstler to Speak in Montpelier 

Not everyone in Vermont is content with Obama or the two-party system he emerged from. Take the folks at Second Vermont Republic: They're putting on tomorrow's all-day Vermont Independence Convention at the State House in Montpelier. In addition to members of the Alaskan Independence Party, the convention features keynote speaker James Howard Kunstler.

Kunstler, the author of the acclaimed non-fiction book, The Long Emergency, spoke with Seven Days in April 2005. For better or worse, his ideas about peak oil and suburban sprawl are as timely as ever.

What's Kunstler up to these days? Earlier this year, he released World Made by Hand, what his website calls "A Novel of the post-oil future." Learn more about the novel from this New York Times review.

ADDENDUM: My Tuesday Blurt post from Denise Begins Barnard's Richmond hair salon failed to mention Diane Snelling, a Republican candidate for Senate in Chittenden County. Snelling won back her Senate seat by earning 31,148 votes. Barnard lost.
