Re: “Inside the Conservative Takeover of Vermont's Coolidge Foundation

Shlaes "Forgotten Man"'s economic revisionism has been widely discredited by non-ideological economists. The fact that she has been quoted as stating she's an admirer of the Mercers also says all you need to know.

Cal was undoubtedly a great man in many respects but also modest and self -effacing, and does not need Shlaes kind of self-serving efforts at public relations. Her subversive attempt to alter the Foundation's raison d'etre from an historical to an ideological organization via an all-too-transparent masquerade that purportedly strives merely to revitalize a faded and mis-understood but once prominent Vermonter is greatly resented by this 8th Generation Vermonter. The fact that the focus is on her role in increased "fund raising" speaks volumes.

As to the "success" of the "Roaring Twenties", those alive during following decade might beg to differ.

Re: “Walters: House Panel Trims Ethics Bill

Wonder what Ron Hubert has to hide - methinks he doth protest too much.

Re: “Anchor Eva McKend Breaks New Ground on WCAX

In the '60s and '70s my husband and I always thought that natural hair and afros looked great and we still do. Can't believe people are still hung up on this kind of superficial stuff. She's a great reporter, and that's all that counts!

Re: “Land O'Lakes Buys Vermont Creamery: 10 Questions for Allison Hooper

My cousin in St Paul MN worked for LOL at a high level in finance, believe me they are just one more big agribusiness looking to expand any way they can. They see non-GMO as just one more profit center. Too bad one more locally owned Vermont business has chosen to sell out, because, protestations aside, there's no way the business can retain the same values it was founded on, just look at Ben & Jerry's and Unilever.
The CEO's actions as detailed above tell the REAL story.

The real question is why does Vermont Creamery HAVE to expand exponentially anyway? Why could they not have been content to remain a smaller business that could have been sold to the employees? Switchback was also growing rapidly, but chose to do just that despite the fact that it would have been far more lucrative for Bill Cherry to sell his business to Samuel Adams or the like. Instead, Hooper et al have chosen to take the money and run by selling out to the InBev of the butter industry. In future we choose to buy our butter and cheese from authentic Vermont-owned producers. Shame!

Re: “Walters: Nothing to See Here, Say Senators

As 3rd generation residents of around-the-corner Spaldings West Shore we've known Dick from his store since at least 1957 or before. There's no one more honorable, honest, genuine, and kind around. He routinely goes beyond the call of duty to help anyone in need. Yes, Vermont does need better ethical standards for it's representatives, but to try to tie that fact to this drug bust, where beyond any doubt Dick had absolutely zero involvement or culpability, or to question his honest success, is more than beyond absurd, this kind of sensationalism, and muckraking reduces 7Days' credibility to zero, in our view.

Re: “Former Burlington College President Unloads on Board, Jane Sanders

People seem to forget that it was Tony Pomerleau who actually put together the elements that made this deal happen!

Re: “Bernie Bits: Did Sanders Really Lose the Democratic Debate?

Mr. Stern you've obviously never been to social democratic Scandinavia. There's a reason they have the highest standard of living and highest level of happiness in the world. 'Mercans need to get out of the country more.
