MONDAY'S HUM (12-18-06)
GRANDSON NOT IN CHRISTMAS MOOD
GRANDMOTHER STRANGLED WITH CHRISTMAS LIGHT CORD
Our Better Letter to the Editor award goes to Ralph Farnsworth of New Haven. Farnsworth's offering, published in the Sunday, December17 Burlington Free Press, questions the driving capabilities of Senator Edward Flanagan, of which there is considerable Hum.
"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."
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
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.
