PoliticsVt DEBLOGGING; BOWING OUT W/ SOLID POSTS

Here are some articles worthy of mention.

It's a great piece for the local political junkies among us.

FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Brought my clean laundry to the Essex Junction Five Corners light yesterday and had a folding party. I threw on the CD, VERMONT SONGS, with Marty Morrissey and Robert Resnick, opened the Fritos and proceeded the fold and organize 26 loads of clothes. The light turned green just as I finished finding the mate to that last pesky sock. It was perfect!
