Ironies of outsourcing war

Posted on March 11, 2011 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Middlebury College professor Allison Stanger made big news last Wednesday when she appeared on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” to discuss her book, “One Nation Under Contract: The Outsourcing of American Power and the Future of Foreign Policy.” The release of her book is old news, actually, seeing how the hardback edition came out in October 2009, but the paperback edition recently came out and it was another opportunity for Stewart to highlight an important work — by putting the spotlight on Stanger’s seven years of research tho

Clippings: Wondering why we do what we do

Posted on March 11, 2011 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



 

Monday was the kind of day to make one ask why.

As in, why am I leaving the safety of the office to go to the college gym to play noontime basketball, when I’m pretty sure no one else in his or her right mind will head out in the middle of two feet of snow to do so?

Patchwork: South Street gold

Posted on March 10, 2011 |
By Kate Gridley



It is my birthday (as I write this on Monday) and I am snowed in. All I can think about is maple syrup. The days are palpably longer, and the swing between daytime and nighttime temperatures has become more dramatic. Even with the deep snow cover from this year’s winter, it has felt as if something could be stirring, but not today. It is a white out; everything is shut down.

 MIDDLEBURY — At the same time that state lawmakers are trying to revamp the system by which Vermonters recover from illnesses, a group of citizens is urging the Vermont Legislature to allow terminally sick people the right to forgo treatment and end their own lives.

MIDDLEBURY — Nancy Valko was tired of living in the prison that Lou Gehrig’s Disease had made of her once vibrant body.

So on a sunny April 19, 2009, the former Middlebury resident took one last wheelchair ride through her favorite park, had a piece of berry pie, bade farewell to her beloved friends and family, and went out into her backyard to draw her last breath.
