Ways of Seeing: Feel other’s pain, see their viewpoint

By Devon Jersild



When Sen. Rob Portman reversed his position on marriage equality after his son came out as gay, he took a lot of flack.

Letters to the editor, columns, and editorials in recent issues of the Independent have criticized Vermont Gas Systems for trying to obtain approval of the Addison Natural Gas project without allowing sufficient time for public consultation and revising the proposal in response to public concerns.
