Evaluate senator's
driving abilities

"I think state Sen. Edward Flanagan should be examined by the state to see if he is qualified to operate a motor vehicle. The next time he has an accident, he may not be so lucky or worse, he may involve other people.

I believe the state should re-examine operators after the age of 75 or 80 for eyesight and some form of reflexes. I don't believe a written exam is necessary.

Maybe operators having an accident for unexplained reasons such as Flanagan should also be re-examined, regardless of age."

Delightful atmosphere at the Essex Junction Five Corners yesterday. Christmas carolers went from car to car taking requests from idlers. I chose The 12 Days of Christmas 'cuz I knew there would be more than enough time to get through it.
