Re: “El Gato Cantina (Burlington)

No, thanks.
I find the claims that they make their beans from scratch to be difficult to believe. My refried beans were dry and pasty, so they were either from a can, or sat under warming lights way too long. Meat in my steak taco was overcooked. Drinks and service were good Food: 2 Ambiance: 2 Service: 4

Re: “Milton Students Return to Racial Turmoil

Donna Boutin...

"...Was it a video of black singers singing in it?"
"There was a bunch of colored boys..."
"...When do the statues start coming down in Vermont???

I guess you're right. Vermont never had a race problem.

Re: “Notorious Transient Accused of Assaulting Burlington Business Owner

litebrite42- I'm sorry. "...faith in his recovery process instead of holding things against him all the time"? "What "recovery process"? 900 contacts and 117 arrests since 2011 has to be some kind of record. I've known people who have suffered as much and still haven't visited this kind of suffering upon others. Please don't give him one more excuse to use as a crutch. The system isn't perfect, but there's help if he'll have it. At this point, I'm more concerned about the people who have to pay through their encounters with his pain and rage. I'm not of a mind to hide all our homeless. Neither do I want to have to worry about being assaulted when I take my family downtown.

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

Dear Citizen: There's a place you can go to study history that doesn't cost a dime. It's the library.

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

Donna Boutin. Sure. Nazis are people. They're just not nice people. And, tearing down monuments of racists and slave owners isn't erasing Southern history. There's LOTS of Southern history that has nothing to do with people who thought of blacks as inferior to white folks.
As far as the monuments go, they belong in museums, not on public squares and thoroughfares.

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

Stephen Hutchins, Nazism is buying in to theories of racial hierarchy, which is a lie and racial chauvinism has no place in civilized, intelligent society. It makes sense to say, "I only like white t-shirts" but it's stupid to say, "I only like white people".
If people like ME scare you more than this dude does, you need a to find Mr. Peabody and Sherman and get yourself a WABAC machine.

Re: “Hood's Off: Burlington White Nationalist Attended Charlottesville Rally

Dear Citizen, Lose their job? I'd like to see Nazis run out of town by howling dogs and villagers with torches. Companies have mission statements. Companies hire people based upon their ability to carry out the company brand and mindset. Employees have to work alongside people who may be different from them- culturally, ethnically, etc. If I hired someone who turned out to be a white supremacist, they'd be given two weeks pay, and "Adios, Spawn of Hitler". This guy thinks whites are discriminated against, that Jews lie, and he's "not oppressing anyone".
It's morning in Vermont. Better wake up, folks. Like roaches, racists are everywhere.

Re: “Burlington Residents React to Latest City Hall Park Redesign

It's easy to joke about it. In the 1800s, a butcher was letting his sheep graze on the park. Another merchant used a path through the middle as a road so he wouldn't have to go around the "square" which was, in those days, more like a circle.
The park needs changing, both as an amenity for locals and to attract visitors. Go to Albany, or Buffalo or Portland or any other city and see that their landscape keeps up with the times.
I'm tired of hearing people whine about keeping things the same, or not investing in something better. You want parched grass? Move to Cali.
