Re: “Vermont Lawmakers Seek to Rein In Rent-to-Own Stores

There's just something wrong when someone pays through the nose for something just because it is paid in installments. There should be a cap on the processing fees or whatever you call them so that the person does not end up paying two and a half times the value of the item. Disgraceful. Rent-A-Center places should be for something you rent because you don't need, or want, to own it, like renting a fancy rototiller for your garden and then taking it back to the store when you are done rototilling your garden.

Re: “Vermont Officials to Take Pot Fact-Finding Trip to Colorado

I am happy to see that the fact-finding tour includes both pro-and anti-legalization folks. I support the legalization of small amounts of recreational marijuana although I have never smoked the stuff myself and don't intend to if it becomes legal. I also think the points raised by Bill Magnus are very well-taken.

And while we're at it, can somebody please explain to the Feds that industrial hemp, while a cousin to marijuana, is not the same thing and shouldn't be illegal to grow. You can't smoke it, unless you want to get really sick. it is used to make rope, twine, and other stuff that can be made out of fibrous materials. It is used in products like hand lotion. It is legal to BUY products made from hemp; why isn't it legal to grow the hemp that these products are made from? Hello?

Happy retirement, Sam! Are there books in the offing?

Re: “Media Note: Free Press Staffers Must Reapply for Jobs

This is really peculiar, to say the least.
