SHUCKS ! NO MERGER !
Maybe Lyndonville and Essex Junction can merge. Inside stuff.
We were planning sizable coverage on the merger but we're sick of it like everyone else and will not mention it EVER again.
COFFEE SURVEY CONTINUES
Hey! Tell us where the great LOCAL coffee is!
Lots of comments! Lots of fun!

Anyway, for the inside scoop and best story, see Charity at She's Right.
TIMES-ARGUS, BILL O'REILLY SOUNDING LIKE ROSIE AND TRUMP
They've called each other dishonest and O'Reilly has called the Times-Argus part of the corrupt Vermont media. Now the Times-Argus has blasted back, calling O'Reilly "irrelevant" and a "blowhard." At least they didn't accuse him of having a comb-over.
Here's a reaction posted on a Times-Argus forum:
FIVE CORNERS UPDATE
Got to the Essex Junction Five Corners and had to break up a fistfight between a merger proponent and a merger opponent. It was a bloody mess, not unlike the whole merger proceedings. (Read this BFP My Turn piece from Hugh Sweeney.)
Whoops! We said earlier we weren't going to talk about the merger EVER again, and besides, the light changed and we headed to Winooski. No merger there. Just a roundabout.
