Posted on September 19, 2013 |
By Eric Davis

Greg Dennis: The tweet life, 140 characters long

Posted on September 19, 2013 |
By Gregory Dennis



When Twitter announced it was planning to sell stock to the public and make its founders richer than God, millions of people responded to the news by wondering, “How can a company named after bird sounds be worth $10 billion?”

Millions of other people scratched their heads and wondered, “What in the world is Twitter?”

It’s a social networking (or, if you prefer, “microblogging”) service that until recently limited users to 140-character messages. Photos are now possible, but most users stick with word updates.

Greg Dennis: College fails to lead on divestment

Posted on September 5, 2013 |
By Gregory Dennis



Middlebury College has made enormous contributions to the well-being of Addison County. That’s all the more reason why its hasty decision not to divest out of fossil fuel companies “at this time” is so puzzling.

Eric Davis: Vt. congressional delegation must decide on Syria

Posted on September 5, 2013 |
By Eric Davis



The three members of Vermont’s congressional delegation must decide whether to support President Obama’s request that Congress authorize the use of military force against Syria in response to the Assad government’s chemical weapons attack on communities near Damascus. As of Sept. 3, none of the members of the delegation had made a firm statement about how he will vote.

Gregory Dennis: From the Big Lebowski to green burial

Posted on September 2, 2013 |
By Gregory Dennis



There’s a classic scene near the end of “The Big Lebowski” — the best bowling movie ever — where The Dude (Jeff Bridges) and Walter (John Goodman) stand on an ocean cliff. They’ve clambered out there to spread the cremated ashes of Donnie, their recently deceased friend and bowling partner.

But it’s windy out there. When Walter releases Donnie’s remains after a hilariously inappropriate soliloquy, the breeze blasts the ashes directly onto The Dude’s face — where they stick into a pasty mask.

Joanna Colwell: A hero shows the power of compassion

Posted on September 2, 2013 |
By Joanna Colwell



 

We might be all mourning another Newtown-style gun tragedy, this one near Atlanta, if it weren’t for the bravery and calm of a school clerk named Antoinette Tuff. She had just sat down at a desk, taking the place of another secretary at Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy, when 20-year-old Michael Brandon Hill entered the school. Dressed in black and armed to the teeth, the would-be gunman appeared extremely agitated and ready to inflict harm.

Clippings by Xian: So long and thanks for the ride

Posted on August 29, 2013 |
By Xian Chiang-Waren



A few weeks ago, I hopped off the ACTR Tri-Town Shuttle at Mount Abraham Union High School to pay an unexpected visit to a Spanish teacher whose name I didn’t know, who may or may not have been on the premises, who perhaps had something to do with a field trip fundraising effort that I thought would — probably — make a good photo-op for an inside page of the paper.
