Montpelier's Other Stinker 

So, did anyone else notice that rank odor emanating from Vermont's capital district? The BBC News sure did today, and it's got nothing to do with Gov. Jim Douglas' announcement this afternoon that he plans to veto the gay marriage bill once it lands on his desk.

No, this foul news emanated from 7-year-old Joshua Boothe, this year's champion of the Odor Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest. Boothe took home the mold, er, the gold, and a $2500 check for winning the 34th annual event and earned himself a permanent place in the Odor Eater Hall of Fumes. Stink on, bro!
