Jessie Raymond: 'Friendly skies' tough on stomach

Posted on October 26, 2017 |
By Jessie Raymond



During a layover in the Newark airport on the way back to Burlington Monday, I had one thought: “Stop the world, I wanna get off.”

I didn’t mean it in a metaphorical sense. I meant the world before me was literally spinning, the result of several consecutive days of carsickness, capped off by a rambunctious flight during which the attendants spent most of the time strapped into their jump seats, praying.

Letter to the Editor: Deferring Mount Abe work wouldn't be wise

Posted on October 26, 2017 |
By Louis duPont



Thirty-five million might seem like a lot of money, and it is a lot of money. But a vote for the Mt. Abe Renovation Bond on Thursday, Nov. 2, will be less expensive by far than continuing to put off work that is desperately needed.

Letter to the Editor: Golden Spurs

Posted on October 26, 2017 |
By Charles Sabukewicz



His ticket out –

those lucky bone spurs in his heels

good for five deferments

a free pass

from the hot lead of Viet Nam

 

Not for him

the brotherhood of the fallen

 

Golden Spurs

to match the golden locks

combed over the barren dome

of the Commander in Chief

for the flag he so loves

for the country
