Re: “Pho Hong

Best pho in town
Full disclosure: I've never had anything at Pho Hong besides their pho. Reason for that? Their pho is so delicious that I've become totally addicted to it, and as much as I might think sometimes that I should try some of their other food, when I get there all I can think of is pho. I've tried the pho at all the other Burlington-area Vietnamese restaurants, and Pho Hong's is the most flavorful and balanced of the bunch. Food: 5 Ambiance: 3 Service: 4

Re: “What Is That White Dome on a Hill Overlooking St. Albans?

Vermont and upstate New York actually have an interesting Cold War history. In addition to the St Albans radar installation, there was a significant radar base in the mountains near East Haven, part of the distant early warning radar network. And Plattsburgh Air Force Base was a major B-47, B-52, and F-111 bomber base, contributing to Operation Chrome Dome (which kept bombers perpetually circling in the Arctic, ready to bomb the Soviet Union in the event of a nuclear exchange). It was one of Plattsburgh's B-52s that was lost in the infamous "broken arrow" incident near Thule Air Base in Greenland during a Chrome Dome mission. Perhaps most interestingly, Vermont and upstate New York have the only nuclear missile silos built east of the Mississippi, 12 of them in a ring around Plattsburgh AFB.
