Re: “Radio DJ Mike Luoma Fired From the Point

How is "Boo" a stinging rebuke? I think these days it's a polite and mild comment.

Re: “Burlington City Council Votes to Re-Redesign City Hall Park

I'd like to respond to a comment for my previous comment. The person said,
"Jesus Christ on a cracker. You people. You can't "bully" trees. They are trees, not people. You also can't force something that is dying to live. Science doesn't work that way."

Did Jesus stand on a cracker? No, it was a joke. The idea of the plan "bullying the trees" was a metaphor. We believe that science will support the saving of most full-grown trees in City Hall Park. The trees aren't dying all at once. Keep the Park Green is not against progress, or science, or fixing up the park. It is simply against taking more than half the trees for the sake of the design of the Plan. We need to find a compromise, and that is why we have this Resolution. Bless the City Council for seeing our point. This is democracy in action.

Re: “Burlington City Council Votes to Re-Redesign City Hall Park

I just want to say the dislikers are doing a great job on this comment section. There is a lot of money in this project. I'd say just fix the project so a majority of trees stay. Trees make a park. [Okay, I'll bet I get ten likes and 20 dislikes. Go for it.]

Re: “Opponents of Burlington City Hall Park Redesign Speak for the Trees

Excuse me Brad, but
"From the picture it looks like there are lots of people enjoying the new park"
is not a great punchline cause it's an architect's rendering, not a photo. Please stop. Get back to the subject.

Re: “Opponents of Burlington City Hall Park Redesign Speak for the Trees

Brad D wishes to spar:
"You do realize that the park right now looks nothing like the original City Hall Park. Maybe we should go back to the time when it was round.
As a matter of fact let's go back to the time when the world was flat!"

Well, Brad, I can see that you do not get my point. I hope you do not fall off the world.

Re: “Opponents of Burlington City Hall Park Redesign Speak for the Trees

"Stop the insanity"? Why is saving trees insanity? As for the way the park looks Now - ask anyone who's been here for a year - this is the worst-looking season to judge the trees and grass. The fact is that thousands of residents do not want the park to be laid bare and removed of all its history. If you do not like trees, please go stare at a building, down at the sidewalk, or up at the sky . Thank you.
