John Irving reads at Mead Chapel

Posted on October 21, 2010 |

MIDDLEBURY — After years of wondering and surmising along with her husband, one Monkton resident was finally able to ask John Irving last week if he had, in fact, named his main character of the novel “Cider House Rules” after her husband and his father, both also Homer Wells.

Her husband’s father grew up in an orphanage in Maine, she said into the microphone in the center aisle of Middlebury College’s Mead Chapel on Oct. 13, and she was wondering if Irving had stumbled across the name during his research.

Plato: Politicians employ dense, Platonic turn-of-phrase on regular basis

Posted on October 21, 2010 |

Author’s note: This essay begins a second series of essays and reflections about politics and the moral life. Each essay develops a theme from a work by the philosopher Plato, entitled “Laws,” which he wrote shortly before his death in 347 B.C. “Laws” is written as a dialogue 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.

STATE BUDGET: The state budget shortfall is currently projected to be around $120 million, but the shortfall will likely be larger than that; the proposed savings from the Challenges for Change, if successful, will not begin immediately but will phase in over time.

STATE BUDGET: Shift taxes from earned income in business and wages to unearned profits on land speculation and natural resource extraction. There is $1.2 billion per year in tax revenue on resources alone, but corporations pocket this revenue. The Legislature acts in the interests of corporate lobbyists and land speculators, driving business and wage-earners away from Vermont.
