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

Love the "stole an American woman from an American man" crap. Something tells me that Phil isn't much of a catch.

Re: “South Burlington Student's Post on 'White Fragility' Goes Viral

I'm not sure, Maggie, but calling it white fragility is racist though, whether it was intended that way or not. If the concept being discussed was 'black fragility', given that the word 'fragility' is always going to carry negative connotations, there would be no question in anyone's mind that it was inappropriate.

Re: “South Burlington Student's Post on 'White Fragility' Goes Viral

Looking over the power point linked in the post, the presentation seems fair and measured. The term 'white fragility' is an awful way to start it out, though, even if it's fairly accurate. That needlessly puts a pretty large group of people on the defensive before the presentation even starts, and likely makes large portions of the audience in a position where they're no longer as open to the ideas being discussed. Like the Rebel name, a large group of people is going to be offended by using the term 'white fragility', and rightfully so.

Re: “Reports: Second Dannemora Escapee Shot, in Custody

Kind of odd that the officer yesterday isn't being grilled for shooting an unarmed man twice in the back. I know this isn't your usual 'suspect', but use your radio, and get help if you're too fat and out of shape to keep up with a malnourished escapee who has been in hiding for the last three weeks. Lethal force was not justified here, as far as I'm concerned.

Re: “Shelter Skelter: Domestic Abuse Survivors Wind Up in Seedy Motels

I also spent some time working at the Comfort/University Inn for Larkin, and it was truly embarrassing that the state was supporting that practice. The rooms were full of mold, the place was a haven for drug deals, prostitution, and all other sorts of criminal activity, the state never checked in on the disgusting condition of the facility, and Larkin management refused to deal with the obvious issues, as the state filled rooms (at 55 per night) that they'd have never managed to fill with paying customers.

The state needs to rethink this policy, but as long as there are disgusting companies like Lark-Inn in existence, there will be someone to undercut decent facilities, allow abuse of the law and the taxpayers' dollars, and make sure that this program is virtually worthless.
