Re: “Massachusetts Republican John Kingston Runs a Christian Retreat in Vermont

Why is this news? It appears that no laws have been broken. So, what's the reason for the article? Because he's a Republican operating a perfectly legal Christian retreat in Vermont? I used to think the right's yammering about liberals being intolerant was just so much nonsense, but "news" articles like this are causing me to wonder if there might not be some truth to the claim.

Re: “New Chinese Environmental Policy Hits Vermont Recycling Programs

@ saysme "I will lead the campaign to collect what I'd estimate are thousands of UNUSED cloth or heavy plastic shopping bags stashed around the state in people's homes and garages that can be donated to those too poor to buy a bag."

I look forward to seeing the poor enthusiastically lining up at your door so you can hand them their second-hand shopping bag. I'm sure they will come in droves. While we wait, let's learn a new word. Facile: (especially of a theory or argument) appearing neat and comprehensive only by ignoring the true complexities of an issue; superficial.

Re: “New Chinese Environmental Policy Hits Vermont Recycling Programs

Doesn't the environmental cost of shipping our recycling half way around the world undo any good that the recycling might have brought about in the first place?

Re: “Some Councilors Cry Foul As Obeng Gets Residency Exemption

Is there any rule or policy left that has not been bent, bruised, or broken for this man?

Re: “Unlikely Allies Open a Homeless Shelter in Lamoille County

Why is an alliance between religious leaders, law enforcement officers, and volunteers "unlikely," as this article asserts? I cannot think of a single reason why this is any more unlikely than any other alliance under similar circumstances.
