CH. 5 GM CHALLENGES VT. DEMS
In an editorial dated November 15, WPTZ Prez Paul Sands urges Montpelier's Democrats to "Work with Douglas to find solutions instead of looking for fights."
Hah! Dude has zero problem saying what he thinks, eh?
He also implores Bernie Sanders to "...look for some common ground in the center."
Yeah, right. We have a better chance of having a 70 degree day in December than seeing Bernie make that arduous trek to the center...well, wait a minute, with global warming, a 70 degree day isn't so far-fetched anymore. Anyway.

Speaking of PTZ, 'tis funny to go on their local page and see a link for an International Paper tire-burn story, and directly below see an ad for IP, letting us know they help sponsor the closed captioniong on the station. There's no conflict of interest there, it's just funny, that's all.
With Katie ( 15 cool million a year) Couric's ratings lower than a public access cemetary board meeting (no partial pun intended), maybe CBS should ditch her and bring in proven Channel 5 anchor Stephanie Gorin. We're sure Ms. Gorin would do the job for a million a year; that would leave CBS with 14 million bucks left over to spend on quality domestic reporters and international correspondents, giving the viewing public more, uh, news and less fluff. Hmmm.
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE - Essential Collection
It was just like high school at the Essex Junction Five Corners Light yesterday. A driver started a food fight and before you know it, the fries and burgers and peaches and tacos were flying through the intersection, creating a fun, messy ruckus. All the cars had their windshield wipers on and their windows rolled up. When the light turned green a couple of hours later, we all headed for the car wash. Just another crazy day at the Five Corners!
