WHY ARE GAS STATIONS ON SHELBURNE ROAD 10 CENTS HIGHER A GALLON THAN STATIONS ON ROUTE 15 ?! SOMEBODY IS GETTING RIPPED OFF !!!
PLEASE! DON'T BE MANNEQUINS! SPEAK OUT !
We're not kidding ! Yesterday, A HUM correspondent was on Shelburne Road and, generally, the prices were around 2.49 a gallon. An hour later the correspondent was on Route 15 in Essex and the prices averaged 2.39 ! For example, the Simon's on Shelburne Road was 2.49 and the Simon's in Essex was 2.39 ! What is up with that ?
FIRED WALTER REED GENERAL UVM GRAD
Native Vermonter Weightman received M.D. from Groovy Uvy.
HUM DINGER - A HUM EDITORIAL
From most accounts, General George Weightman is a decent man and loyal patriot. West Point grad and all that. Unfortunately, the less-than-acceptable conditions at Walter Reed demand a fall guy - and Weightman is the top dog at the hospital, hence, the dude who's accountable. With the embarrassing news accounts of the past week, shedding very bright light on the problems at Reed, Weightman was an easy target, the easiest. But remember two things when someone mentions this story to you:
- Weightman was only Walter Reed chief for six months - barely enough time to figure out where the vending machines were. The problems at the Medical Center originated long before Weightman took over.
- All VA hospitals are presently experiencing difficulties with bureaucracy and operations. How 'bout taking some of the Homeland Security monies we're presently spending on "stupid stuff" (little-used security cameras in remote Alaska, etc. ) and bolster the facilities at Walter Reed and beyond.
