Re: “Drifters

Best food for the best price in town . Creative without being overly "foodie" . The patio wasn't yet open when we were there . Hope to enjoy it when we return .

Re: “A Vergennes Father Is Being Forced to Return to Mexico

Forget about Juan . Even if you feel badly about his situation , forget about Juan . How is this policy of removing all the illegals that can be caught , regardless of whether they are paying taxes and contributing to the American economy, how is removing them good for the USA ? So from a purely selfish approach , why is this a good idea ? Do people think spending lots of money to expel the Juan's is somehow going to stop illegal immigration ?
One other more . It's the "good" illegals that are easy to catch . The bad hombres are a lot tougher to round up .Nothing more then political theater . Even a dumb ass should get that .

Re: “Gov. Scott Appoints Killington Golf Pro to Open Vermont Senate Seat

I respect golf pros . They must have the ability to manage difficult often spoiled patrons while also dealing with the hard working people who actually keep the golf courses looking good . Not an easy task .

Re: “A Never-Ending Home Construction Project Vexes a Queen City Hood

Not sure how accepting of a derelict property YOU might be if it was located next to your home .There is also the issue of its owners allowing squatters to occupy it . It should have been leveled long ago .

Re: “Yep, It's Still Hard to Buy a Home Near Burlington

"development moves slowly in Vermont, the result of a detailed and extensive permitting process" Frankly this is an understatement . There is a strong and pervasive anti-development and a NIMBY attitude in Vermont towards new projects , housing or otherwise . This may be part of the charm of the state but it has led to a shortage of affordable housing .

Re: “Movie Review: New Documentary 'Risk' Doesn't Do Justice to WikiLeaks' Julian Assange

Just watched Charlie Rose interview Laura Poitras . Her distaste (disgust ?) of Mr Assange was palatable .
He does seem an amoral snake whose principles are questionable . So are hers .
