WONKETTE TRASHES JIM JEFFORDS
One of the most tasteless headlines we've seen in some time, comes from the D.C. insider site Wonkette, which has an estimated page viewership of about 3 million per month. The headline screams, Jim Jeffords to Give Important Speech This Afternoon, If He Remembers.
Check out the article and the comments here.
Indulge yourself in this 'shake your head' story from WCAX.
"A Burlington woman is going to jail for holding up her sister at a convienence store. Tonya Sprano was caught on tape last winter holding up Spillane's Mobile in South Burlington. Her sister -- Amanda Sprano -- was working behind the counter. Authorities say Amanda was NOT an accomplice in the crime. Tonya says she held up her sister because she felt it would be safer than robbing a stranger. Tonya has been sentenced to four to 15 years in prison. She will undergo drug treatment in jail."
CATCHIN' A GOOD BUZZ
Vermont Buzz, that is. Excellent 9-28 post by Terri Hallenbeck, on the particulars of inviting everyone to the congressional debate.
Her opening sentence was pretty funny. "The table of candidates at Tuesday night’s congressional debate stretched on for so long it looked like the head table at a very large wedding."
Her closing thoughts suggest that too many candidates spoil the rhetorical soup. Catch the Buzz now.
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE - Essential collection
The Essex Junction Five Corners Light is the place to complete your personal hygiene tasks. Why, just yesterday, the light took so long to change I was able to floss, pluck my back hair, cut my toenails AND take a spongebath, all the while watching every episode of The Waltons on my portable DVD player. It was a mighty pleasurable experience.
