Re: “He Couldn't Lose: Bissonnette to Represent Winooski in Vermont House

I hate to burst old Clem's bubble, but he didn't win because of some astonishing groundswell of support or because of some sentimental impulse on the part of Winooski voters. He won because the ballot said to choose two candidates, and there were only two listed, and he was one of them. Many people would not have even known that a write-in candidate was running, let alone have taken the time to learn about him and then make the effort to write in his name. Old Clem won by default, and any other interpretation of the results is pure delusion. He said he was retiring and didn't want the seat; he should do the honorable thing and stick to his word, instead of convincing himself that the citizens of Winooski cannot live without him.

Re: “With a New Policy, Healthy Living Reads the Fine Print for You

I believe there's a spelling error in this article. I think you mean "Wealthy Living."

Re: “'SNL' Skewers Vermont, Where 'the Leaves Change Colors But the People Never Do'

If they think there are no immigrants or minorities in Vermont, they've obviously never been to Winooski. They're a dime a dozen.

Re: “Despite Controversy, Burlington Principal Plans to Vet Student Newspaper Stories

Green is either insane or incompetent, and clearly has contempt both for the law and for free expression. It's long past time for a thorough housecleaning in the Burlington schools.

(To FreedomToThink: you have freedom to think; now try using it.)

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: “Slideshow: Hundreds of Marchers in Burlington Decry Trump's Immigration Policies

The affluent white middle- and upper-middle classes have turned out nicely, based on these photos.
