Re: “Vermont Officials Witnessed Pennsylvania Guard Threatening Inmates

I find it crazy that we don't take responsibility for our own people. If the state of Vermont deems it necessary to lock someone up, the state of Vermont should be the one locking them up--not the state of Pennsylvania or Virginia or a private contractor. Keep the responsibility close to home and accountability will be easier.

Re: “The Hackers Are Coming! Burlington Electric’s Crisis That Wasn’t

Has the photo of Mr. Lunderville been photoshopped? If it has, you might want to somehow indicate that it has been doctored (call it a "photo illustration" or the like) so people don't think 7D is trying to pass a fake photo as real. (If I'm wrong and the lighting is just bizarre, please feel free to disregard this comment)

Re: “Protesting Exxon, Bill McKibben Arrested at Burlington Gas Station

Paul Jones: It has been reported elsewhere (BFP, I think) that McKibben gave the gas station $100 in advance to cover any potential lost revenue. If anything, they made money.

Re: “City Council Snuffs Smoking on Church Street

Shannon probably spoke of people's right to BREATHE air, not "breath" air. If she did say "breath," you should probably add a [sic] to her statement.

Also, 24-hour access, not 24-access.

Re: “Media Note: Free Press Statehouse Reporters to Leave Paper

The Burlington Free Press has been laying off reporters left and right; without these latest two, they now employ a total of 9 reporters in their news department. They measure articles' value by the number of clicks they get, instead of by traditional measures of journalistic importance. Video pieces are valued over in-depth reporting. Professional photojournalists have been fired (instead, reporters are told to take photos with their iPhones). And they've lost nearly all of the (frustrated and exasperated) veteran reporters, so they're left with younger folks who are happy to constantly rejigger their headlines to maximize click-through rates.

But don't worry, people -- I have a solution! Simply rebrand the Burlington Free Press as BURLINGTON BUZZFEED and there will be no confusion about its news and business model, nor high expectations for its journalism. Problem solved!

Re: “Vermont's 2014 Gubernatorial Campaign Drinking Game

Paul: I didn't do anything of the sort: I sat down with a cup of herbal tea and made it through the debate just fine. I actually enjoyed it!

If you feel compelled to get either drunk or high on auto fumes just to get through watching a television program, you may have a substance use issue.

Re: “Vermont's 2014 Gubernatorial Campaign Drinking Game

Why is Seven Days promoting drinking games, which are one of the highest-risk ways to drink? As painful as political season may be, I can assure you that alcohol poisoning is worse.
