Re: “Opponents to Appeal Burlington Telecom Sale Decision

Burlington Telecom was never properly supported by Burlington government. Cox cable made sure of that. Remember them? - they absconded with billions.

And it is very unusual for a municipal telecom to fail, to not have proper support, to not generate profit, to not be touted as a real benefit to jobs, to education, to disaster planning.

Look around Muny telecoms are a happening thing around the country. What we have here, in all aspects, is a disgrace. It is our equivalent of Flint, Michigan's municipal water system.

Re: “Sanders, Leahy and Welch Call for Sanctions Against Saudi Arabia

"Calling Shahoggi a "jounalist" is like calling Jack the Ripper a "night person". "

This sure looks like a journalist to me:

Re: “Scott Administration Proposes Draining Clean Energy Fund

By "draining", you mean "stealing", right? Stealing money from renewable energy subsidies has got to be the most short-sighted action in the history of humanity at this point. Scott is a Republican, right?

Re: “With 'Mixed Emotions,' Scott Legalizes Marijuana in Vermont

""And schools, employers, municipalities and landlords are also empowered to adopt policies and ordinances further restricting the cultivation and use." "

Landlords? Does anyone else see a Constitutional problem with a landlord saying a tenant does not have the right to use or grow marijuana (a licit legal product) in his own apartment because of the mere whim of the landlord? Good luck with that.

Re: “Walters: State Legislative Panel Approves Wind Rules

It's not about the industry - it's about the planet, species, and the future of civilization. Vermont is WAY out of line with rest of the world here. And do not doubt for one millisecond where the opposition to wind comes from - the Koch brothers.

Re: “Vermont School Districts Must Save $13 Million Under Legislature’s Compromise

This article talks about:

"Save...Save....Savings....."

These are CUTS. This is cutting school funding, cutting teacher benefits. Shame on you, SevenDays, for such bias.
