Re: “Walters: Corporate Contributions Ban Has a Tough Day

Public financing of elections. Period.

End the legalized bribery of Citizens United.

Re: “Welch Takes Campaign Cash From Telecom Regulated by His Wife

This is just another reason for Public Financing for elections . . . get the filthy corporate money OUT of politics.

Money is not speech. Only a dunce or Corporate Shill would think otherwise.

Citizens United does not offer equal protection under the law.

Re: “Nonprofits Urge Vermont Lawmakers to Ditch Tax Change

No picture of Senator Ashe staring pensively into the distance? Thought that was standard for all articles in 7 Days . . .

Re: “Vermont Tomato Farmer Leads Defense of Organic Principles

Corporate capture of regulatory agencies at all levels of government is criminal and it is widespread. It is Cannibal Capitalism. And it needs to end.

Re: “Movie Review: Only the Silent Survive in the Chilling 'A Quiet Place'

A great , intense, clever movie. I felt bad making any noise in the theater as the movie is so silent. Go see it if you need a 90 minute stress/freak out. Kisonak's review is good except for his trying to sound like a sensitive, modern man with his "female empowerment " flailing. It is a movie about family, about sacrifice, and fear. ALL of the family members contributed, Rick. You must be sleeping on the couch again.

Re: “First Night Burlington Shuts Down After 35 New Year's Eve Festivals

It's a shame to see First Night end. But it is not surprising. I would look at the roster of performers each year and realize that some were very good, some were OK, and the rest was Hamburger Helper. And some of these lesser acts would repeat for years. I recall one white guy with a shaved head and acoustic guitar whose songs were described as "healing and medicinal" who did little more than moan, whimper and whine into the mic for 30 minutes which sent most of the crowd out the door before he finished. The only medicine I thought of was Pepto-Bismol.

The weather can't be blamed for much of the collapse of First Night. There should be consideration of just who was doing the picking as far as entertainment and why evidently most folks lost interest in coming. Perhaps a more consolidated schedule and fewer but better acts might have saved First Night, say running from 3pm to 9pm, a more family friendly time slot instead of trying to party into the night.

Or maybe as Burlington becomes more corporate and sterile we ain't so "vibrant" anymore.
