Re: “Trumpatized? Prominent Vermonters Reveal Their White House Worries

After reading this article, my strongest reaction is that my respect for Jim Douglas has been seriously damaged..

I often did not agree with Mr Douglas when he was governor, but I always felt him to an sensible and thoughtful man.

But, here, we hear him spouting the standard "it's still early, we need to wait and see" nonsense. In heaven's name, what more evidence of who --and what-- Donald Trump is do the Trump-apologists need?

And then, finally to read Mr Douglas repeating the old dodge that the fact that the media honestly and accurately reports on the outrages committed daily by Trump and his lackeys is evidence of the "left-wing bias" of the media... it's simply hard to know how to respond..

In a word, Mr Douglas, you are better than this.

Re: “'Mob' Attacks Middlebury Prof and Controversial Speaker Charles Murray

There are two issues here that need to be kept distinct:

-- Is racist blather reprehensible?
Yes, of course.

--Was the behavior of the thugs at Middlebury reprehensible?
Yes, of course.

It is helpful to bear in mind that these are not mutually exclusive statements..

Re: “Immune-Boosting Fire Cider Packs Heat

I second the point by David Diaz. This is particularly important in the Trump anti-science era. I think it's fair to wonder how open Seven Days would be to printing an equally science-free article that was in support of, say, Climate-Change denial.

Re: “WTF Is Richford's 'Mystery Spot'?

If you ride up the Cog Railway at Mt Washington you can experience a similar optical illusion. As you sit in your seat your brain tells you that "up" is along your spine, through you head, and then toward the ceiling. However if your conductor walks down the aisle between the seats you can see him/her tilted about 30-45dg away from you, even though they are obviously straight-up vertical.

Re: “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years

OK, fair enough. Perhaps I read too much into the phrase "undeniably the least gifted of the group..." (as well as the follow-up discussion that appeared to suggest that his primary function was simply to come up with wacky sayings). To my ear, it just sounded, well, kind of dismissive.

But I think, ultimately, we're in full agreement. The band wouldn't have been who they were without any of those guys.

And, in any case, really looking forward to seeing the movie. Thanks.

Re: “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week — The Touring Years

"Ringo Starr, undeniably the least gifted of the group..."

OK, granted that being a member of the Beatles sets the bar pretty high, but... "....undeniably the least gifted of the group...[!!]" Nothing personal, but are you nuts??

Granted, Starr was not a song-writer, or --frankly-- much of a singer. But, _musically_, he held his own with _any_ of the others.

I worked as a musician for decades and I never met a drummer who didn't list Starr in their top-five list of favorite rock drummers.
