Re: “Vermont Organizations Receive NEA Grants

I would have thought that picture of the mayor was from his Sinex mall negotiations.

Re: “Vermont Delegation Disturbed, Troubled by Comey Testimony

If Bernie ran over a bunch of people in a car today...

Depends. What kind of car?

Re: “Vermont Delegation Disturbed, Troubled by Comey Testimony

Bernie is probably not going to talk with Seven Days. Get over it and stop acting like a jilted ex-girlfriend. It's unbecoming.

Hillary was a rotten candidate. It's time for the democrats to stop clinging to the Russians and take responsibility for losing touch. It's not just the presidential election either. The democrats are losing elections all over the place and it's not because of the Russians.

Re: “South Burlington Student's Post on 'White Fragility' Goes Viral

Correct me if I'm wrong, and not that it matters, but isn't this a bi-racial kid from an affluent part of Vermont? The Rebel name is likely the biggest racial inequality he's seen. Hopefully he continues to take on some of the bigger racial issues that are present in the world.

Re: “Walters: Bernie Sanders Made More Than $1 Million in 2016

If only Bernie would just speak to Seven Days he could defend himself against the snarky undertones of this article but alas, he just won't speak to poor Seven Days. I will organize a vigil for Seven Days. When is good for everyone?

Re: “Chief Praises Officer for Not Shooting at Suspect in a Car

Just so you know, the police can fire upon moving vehicles. Is del Pozo trying to set a precedent for gunfire during traffic stops? Who gets to determine "extreme circumstances?"

That officer's life was in less danger (the suspect does appear to swerve around him) than any civilian trying to cross the street when the suspect came backing through the intersection and that danger was 50/50 between being hit by the suspect or being hit by the cop's bullet if he had fired.

I don't think the police officer would have been justified firing off shots.

Re: “As Scott Threatens Veto, Vermont Budget Faces Uncertain Future

You are trying to marry together issues that do not belong together with a quick fix solution. Vermont's economy is struggling, wages do not support the cost of living, and taxes are too high. This is not because teacher salaries are too high.

Teachers are not demanding they make more than everyone else. Their salaries are already in the middle of the pack. Middle of the pack spending on teacher wages should put Vermont's education spending in the middle of the pack as well but this is not the case so other things are driving up this cost.

Reducing teacher wages and benefits does not solve the other issues but solving the other issues makes teacher compensation a non-factor.
