Re: “Former Vermont State Senator Ed Flanagan Dies

Ed was an ally and one of the early ones to be out. He had the moral courage that the best gay men develop from a life on the margins.

Re: “Hard Lesson: A UVM Econ Prof Fights to Keep His Job

Classical capitalism is destroying life on earth. An economics that depends on endless growth on a finite planet is an engine of destruction. An economics that turns corporate polluting and destruction of the climate into externalities rewards corporate destruction and despoiling of our water, soil and atmosphere. UVM has an entire school meant to be devoted to ecological economics which we hear little about. Why is the school defending the very systems that are destroying us from a critique by a well liked teacher? Universities are no longer concerned wtih critical thinking they are money machines now and as such will play to the tastes of conservative donors.

Re: “Heated Forum Leads Pride Center to Denounce 'Mister Sister' Name

Is there a lesbian on the board at the PRIDE Center? There certainly is no programming for lesbians. I think there is homophobia in the trans community I've heard it. Maybe we are two different communities. We've been told sexual orientation is not the same as gender presentation and aside from opposing violence to the gender non conforming I'm not sure we have the same goals at all.

Re: “'Mister Sister' Controversy Leads to Pride Center of Vermont Resignations

I am pleased to see the PRIDE Center remembered that it was also meant to serve the LGB community. If they had opposed the bar based on a few people who are taking offense to the name it would hardly be representative of community opinion.

Re: “Air Show Noise Sets Off Some Burlington Residents

I object to grand scale military dick waving and the ridiculous noise it creates as well as the pollution it is spewing into the air. US bombings of the middle east have made us less safe and are the biggest contributors to air pollution. It is a waste of money as well just because it makes the jingos feel strong by proxy. Nothing strong about it. Those planes and the military are in the death business and their endless wars are destroying life on earth.

Re: “St. Mike's Won't Approve a Planned Parenthood Internship

If men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.
