Letter to the editor: Guns were made to kill people; do we really need them?

Posted on May 28, 2018 |
By Fred Barnes



I find myself unable to be quiet about this incredible debate on guns. It shouldn’t be a debate at all. We live in a country that has been violently destroying other countries and the people living in them. This seems to be a well-accepted fact by many leading intellectuals around the world. We are considered a violent nation — a warring nation. Statistics don’t lie. Perhaps we are so used to violence that we are able to accept all this killing of our children.

Letter to the editor: Middlebury parallel parking backed

Posted on May 28, 2018 |
By John Pratt



I agree with Spence Putnam’s suggested parking on the Battell Bridge in downtown Middlebury. I will go one step further — when I was a kid in the ‘50s there was parallel parking all the way from the Library to the next corner which was, at the time, the First National grocery store and is now the art gallery. Believe me, the cars in the 50s were NOT smaller than now!

It would be a simple matter to create spaces that are perhaps another quarter longer so people are not bucking in and out and holding up traffic.

Poetry: Good-Bye, Ben Franklin

By Gary Margolis



Oh store of Most

Everything. Gold

pins. An aquarium.

 

Plaid cloth.

The least of things

and more. Main

 

Street’s store

named for Invention’s

Curiosity.

 

What can we do

with a key and a kite

string? Invent

 

electricity. All

manner of pens.

One to sign

 

a constitution

with. Ours and theirs.
