Re: “Two Brothers Tavern

My friend and I had a wonderful meal at Two Brothers this weekend! We were in Middlebury for the day and were dining mid-afternoon, and the staff was really friendly and attentive. We made a meal out of an order of poutine (Hooray for vegetarian poutine!) a pretty fantastic beet, walnut, blue cheese, and arugula salad, and a couple of glasses of wine. We both agreed that it was the perfect meal for a rainy, chilly day. We'd go back again the next time we're in town without hesitation.

Re: “Health Group Chair Says She Was 'Silenced' by Scott Administration

"Secretary of Human Services Al Gobeille, whose agency recommended the cut, said he understood Palumbo's frustration but was disappointed that she had chosen to step down.

"She should stay there and fight with me because that's healthy," he said, calling Palumbo "an amazingly dedicated" person. "You gotta stay in the game and keep pounding."

I am so tired of that sentiment. Fighting isn't the way advisors and agency heads should be working together. Respecting opinions and working in a collaborative way to best serve Vermonters is. This isn't a cage match. It's the health and welfare of the people in our state.

Re: “At UVM Event, Second Amendment Advocates Decry Gun-Control Measures

"'I think the real solution is going to come from something like school choice, he said, noting that without it, school systems trap students in situations where they feel uncomfortable or ostracized, which can lead them to build up resentment until they come to school with a gun." or, you know, we could tackle the rampant economic inequality leads to schools to be so underfunded that teachers have to fundraise for pencils and paper, and create a minimum wage that keeps parents from having to work multiple jobs to make ends meet so they can actually be home with their kids at night, and make healthcare affordable and accessible so that anyone who needs it can get the care they need early on and doesn't end up self-medicating. But sure (shakes cane on front yard and yells at kids to get off their violent video game playing asses and play football) let's just let people with the means to use school choice leave behind deteriorating, chronically underfunded public schools with the kids who don't have the means to use them and then wonder why the violence continues.

Re: “Men Accused of Shooting 200 Cars in Burlington Over Two-Year Span

I cannot for the life of me understand the point of this kind of vandalism. I know they haven't released a motive, but ffs, what on earth would motivate two people to go on this kind of extended spree that does nothing but make other people miserable without any real other outcome?

Re: “Making Miso, the Miraculous Broth

I make my own miso every year on New Year's day and crack open the previous year's batch when I start the new one. It's really, really easy and the flavor of homemade is nothing like what you can get in the store. I highly encourage folks to try making their own! Sandor Katz has a few simple recipes in his book "Wild Fermentation".

Re: “A New Photography Zine Explores Concepts of Home

So glad to see Mary's work reviewed! Watching some of the work take shape through her instagram posts has been really fascinating.

Re: “UVM Student Announces Burlington City Council Run

knowyourassumptions - would you rather restrict who is eligible to run, or let the process work and have voters choose who they want to represent them from multiple candidates? Isn't this the basis of democracy?

Re: “City Councilor Quits Job to Vote on Burlington Telecom Sale

I just keep coming back to the fact that after living and working in Burlington for 17 years, I can't personally imagine having the financial resources to just up and quit any of my jobs (because even with a college degree I have to piece together multiple jobs to afford my less than extravagant lifestyle) for a conflict of interest at what is essentially a volunteer job. I have no idea what that kind of freedom would be like. Must be nice.
