Greg Dennis: The governor and ungrateful liberals

Posted on December 3, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



Midway between the November elections and the start of the Vermont legislative hunting season, the question on most political observers’ minds is this: Will Gov. Shumlin get his groove back?

On the answer to that question hangs the fate of liberals’ hopes for statewide action on healthcare reform, climate change and property tax relief.

Greg Dennis: Why a gratitude holiday matters

Posted on November 19, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



North America is a land where, as Jackson Browne says on his new album, “Even in the richer neighborhoods, people don’t know when they’ve got it good. They’ve got the envy, and they’ve got it bad.”

Which is one more reason it’s a good thing that in Canada and the United States, we set aside one holiday weekend a year to count our blessings.

Greg Dennis: Climate movement's secret weapon — fun!

Posted on September 24, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



World leaders are meeting at the U.N. this week, in the wake of Sunday’s historic People’s Climate March — which filled the streets of Manhattan with more than 400,000 people calling for action to curb climate change.

U.N. conference rooms will be filled with ponderous discussions, hard negotiations and perhaps a bit of progress toward a new global treaty to fight what U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry has called “the world’s most fearsome weapon of mass destruction.”

Greg Dennis: On the road to People's Climate March

Posted on September 11, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



We’re still marching in the streets

With little victories and big defeats

—Joan Baez, “To Bobby”

Baez wrote those lyrics to her old boyfriend Bob Dylan more than 40 years ago. And sadly, they’re still true today.

The climate change movement certainly knows about little victories and big defeats.

Greg Dennis: Lies that liberals tell themselves

Posted on August 27, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



I am, by any contemporary definition, a political liberal. No other approach seems to me both practical and morally justifiable.

But I’ve got enough journalistic skepticism to know that not all the liberal truths are really true. And not seeing the truth, in all its nuances, can be dangerous for any political philosophy. (See pre-World War II isolationism; or “We can bring democracy to the Mideast by invading Iraq.”)

Greg Dennis: Early days at the Valley Voice

Posted on August 14, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



You’d have to be a little crazy to start a weekly newspaper in rural Vermont today. The economics just aren’t there.

You also had to be crazy to start a weekly paper here 40 years ago. But that didn’t stop a bunch of us from doing so, when we launched the Valley Voice in the summer of 1974.

Greg Dennis: Diagnosing a case of summer fever

Posted on June 25, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



Case Number: 12345

Patient: G. Dennis

Age: 61, going on 10

Primary symptoms: Smiles far too often. Breathes deeply of the June breeze. Prone to random, pointless walks outdoors. Delusions about the length of the current season.

Dear Dr. Freud:

I write to refer to you a patient, a Mr. G. Dennis, whose ailments are too serious for me to deal with as a psychotherapist. I trust him to your care in hopes your methods can help this poor soul.

Greg Dennis: Growing the $3,000 tomato

Posted on May 29, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



This is the story of the thousand-dollar tomato.

Or, “How Our Hero (I Use the Word Loosely), an Inexperienced Gardener with More Money than Sense, Started His Garden Late, and Expensively.”

It all began not with the need for a garden, but for a vacation. The annual mid-summer escape to Maine was a distant dream when I began casting about for something to break up the work months between Christmas and August.

Greg Dennis: Lasting, local steps toward divestment

Posted on April 16, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



It’s one thing to launch a national political movement. It’s another and much larger challenge to see it gain momentum.

Remember Beyond War? Remember the Million Man March? Me neither.

So the growing success of the national movement for fossil fuel divestment is all the more impressive. Launched just a couple years ago by 350.org (which itself originated on the Middlebury College campus), the divestment campaign has proven it has staying power.

Greg Dennis: College-town collaboration is a winner

Posted on April 2, 2014 |
By Gregory Dennis



Every year after Town Meeting Day, Vermonters get an interesting glimpse at what we “really” think about some controversial statewide issues. That glimpse comes courtesy of State Sen. William Doyle’s survey distributed at many town meetings.

This year’s findings are worth noting on several counts, from legal weed to wind power. But before we consider those statewide issues, let’s first turn to some local ones.
