Re: “North Ave Ballot Question Puts City Officials in Sticky Situation

I say bring back the streetcar. Take back Vermont--to the times when public transit got people around with dignity. At the very least, let's have public meetings and get to know each other and our positions better; and exercise the visionary part of our noggins a little. I would love to see a subway or light-rail get people out of their cars. Here's a study that recommended that: http://www.ccrpcvt.org/library/transit/bur…
Doesn't it deserve a couple of those 4 lanes on North Ave?

Re: “Burlington's Next School Chief Is Still Stuck in Canada

Here's what I'm seeing...
St Albans Citizenship & Immigration says "What does the Burlington School Board know about its needs? This guy's 'ideas on diversity, equity and inclusion appear to be popular in his home country' (!), but this is Vermont, folks... we don't need that kind of baloney here. Trust us, we're the homeland security folks."
To which all (or most) of the letter writers (and "likers") say: "That's right--damn the foreigners! Vermonters like to stew in their own juices."
Seriously?
-- A Canadian who moved south many years ago and now suddenly feels like he did living in the Midwest after 9-11
