Editorial: American exceptionalism, writ small via GOP's culture war

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



If you’re wondering why a few Republican leaders are pouncing on President Obama’s alleged dismissal of “American exceptionalism,” it’s mostly politics, not substance. These would-be presidential hopefuls are suggesting that Obama is undermining American values in an attempt to smear his reputation among voters. The hope is that Americans will turn against the president not because of what he will have accomplished or believes, but by how Republicans characterize his views as “un-American.”
It is, in short, another shameful episode of the ‘culture wars’ waged by the Republican Party.

Around the bend: Renovation not always constructive

By Jessie Raymond



If you stopped by my house Thanksgiving Day, you might have noticed something unusual about our living room. That morning, we turned the furniture around backward, facing a corner that currently features a weight bench, an abandoned cat toy and a few dust bunnies.

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By Tamara Hilmes

ADDISON COUNTY — According to local vendors, Megan Price’s new book “Vermont Wild” has been selling like hotcakes.

The book is a conglomeration of 13 standalone stories told from the perspective of Vermont game warden of 32 years, Eric Nuse of Johnson. Nuse teamed up with Price, a Fair Haven resident, over a year ago to put his stories in a form that would be digestible for readers both young and old.

Competition in the wild

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By Matt Dickerson



I got to my tree stand 50 minutes before dawn, 20 before the legal start of the hunting day. I climbed up the tree, clipped my safety harness, pulled my rifle up, and sat down to wait and enjoy the woods in the predawn and dawn hours.

Editorial: Shumlin's excellent choices

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



Four weeks after a hard-fought election, Governor-elect Peter Shumlin continues to surprise and impress with his choice of department heads and the speed with which he is assembling a very capable cabinet.
The recent appointment of political rival Doug Racine, a state senator in Chittenden County for 14 years (along with six years as lieutenant governor) who lost the gubernatorial primary race to Shumlin by a razor-thin 203 votes, not only demonstrates Shumlin’s willingness to mend fences but also to reach out to the best leaders available.

Clippings: Satellite radio not a serious option

By John Flowers



After wringing much of the goodness out of my old vehicle over the course of seven-plus years, we recently invested in a new set of wheels. My wish-list going into the substantial purchase: that it be an American vehicle with a good Consumer Reports ranking and safety record; have enough cargo space for dump/recycling runs; and that it be capable of towing my late father’s small, barely seaworthy boat that I refuse to junk and use occasionally for fishing jaunts on Bristol Pond.

Plato considers the equality of boys and girls

Posted on December 2, 2010 |
By Victor Nuovo



 

This is the eighth in a second series of essays and reflections about politics and the moral life. The themes of the essays are drawn from Plato’s ‘Laws.’ his last and longest philosophical dialogue written shortly before his death in 347 bce. Laws is a fictional account of a conversation involving three old men with long experience in politics: Cleinias, from the Cretan city of Cnossos, Megillus, from Sparta, and an Athenian stranger who is not named, but who may be Plato himself. This essay treats the important theme of education.
