WEEKEND HUM (08-25-07)
TOP 5 HUMMERS OF THE WEEK
AUDITOR SALMON FINDS FISHY BEHAVIOR
Does anyone know how I get a job with the Vermont Association of Hospitals ?
See, if I'm with that group, I can take anti-terrorism grant money and go party in Quebec City, drinks included! Wow! Where do I sign up ?
Hats off to Vt. Auditor Junior Salmon for digging through the administrative mud and uncovering this pearl. Though we liked former Aud Brocksie, maybe Junior ain't so bad.
Vermont Press Bureau's Louis Porter took the lead with this story and never looked back.

CHARLES IN CHARGE...OF THE LANDFILL!
Scathing letter to the Free Press published Wednesday, August 22 by Charles Kogge of Hinesburg.
Charlie rips into the "self-concerned individuals" who are fighting the future CSWD landfill. Whether you're for or against, Charles has a good point. A lot of these people are spoiled brats with half-million dollar houses who are just looking out for themselves.
Hey, how much waste do you think is generated by a bunch of materialistic bozos living in a $500,000 cribs? Lots, huh?
VERMONT THIS WEEK UPDATE
VPT'S Vermont This Week taking considerable heat for stocking the panel (8-17) with liberal blowhards. Thing is - there aren't many media slugs in Vt. who aren't leftos.
Credit Captain Ledbetter with airing a couple of the angry letters to the show.
Listen to the show if you want.
ST. ALBANS MESSENGER HAS THIS REALLY COOL CRIME MAP
You got to see this to believe it. It's fun and you can see where the bad spots are in Snalbans.
It takes a sec to load, but it's worth it.

There used to be a club in Wells River where one had to be 200+ pounds in order to be listed as a member.
The president of the club weighed in at around 400 pounds, with the largest member tipping the scale at 473!
