Gregory Dennis: What happens when skiing melts away

Posted on February 15, 2018 |
By Gregory Dennis



For Winter Olympian Jessie Diggins, climate change is personal. She’s one of the world’s best Nordic skiers and an American — a rare combination in a sport dominated by Europeans.

But the snowy world that has dominated her life and sport is disappearing.

Gregory Dennis: 'The Post' and the legacy of the free press

Posted on February 1, 2018 |
By Gregory Dennis



“The Post,” Steven Spielberg’s latest melodrama, will lift many a heart. It recounts how the Washington Post defied the Nixon White House and a posse of prosecutors to report on the Pentagon Papers.

Editors and reporters will be among its biggest fans. As Manohla Dargis observed in her Times review, the film is about “a subject that’s dear to the heart of journalists — themselves!”

Cheers for keeping Carol's café open

Dennis, Greg ONLINE.jpg

Sometimes you wanna go where

Everybody knows your name

And they’re always glad you came

 

You wanna be where you can see

Our troubles are all the same

You wanna be where

Everybody knows your name

 

The bar in the TV show “Cheers” was a fun-filled, made-up place. But now that we’re on the verge of losing a real place where they’re always glad you came — well, then it’s time to take things seriously.

Posted on January 4, 2018 |

Even the most imaginatively jaded observers couldn’t have imagined what a wild ride 2017 would be, thanks to a certain president whose last name rhymes with “dump.”

Between the Lines, Gregory Dennis: Serving a dog's breakfast in D.C.

Posted on December 7, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



When Gina McCarthy was a little girl and would get unnecessarily wound up about something, her mother would tell her, “Never waste a good worry on something you can’t control.”

At a time when the Trumpsters have hijacked efforts to combat climate change, McCarthy offered that coping strategy to a large crowd of Vermont community leaders. She was the keynoter at Saturday’s 10th annual conference of the Vermont Energy and Climate Action Conference Network (VECAN).

Gregory Dennis: The time suck that is Twitter

Posted on November 9, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



My name is Greg and I’m a Twitterholic.

It didn’t used to be this way. Back before my addiction took hold, I could just look at Twitter for a few minutes and then go on with my life.

Now, though, I can’t escape the giant time suck. The pull of the keyboard, the angry post and the witty riposte.

Some people pour their entire lives down the bottle. I’m in danger of pouring my life down the Twitterverse. And when you’re drinking from the firehouse that is Twitter, the high never lasts.

Between the Lines, Gregory Dennis:

Posted on September 14, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



It was the first week of August when everyone started talking about the end of summer. As if talking about it, a full month ahead of Labor Day, would somehow prevent the coming of fall.

August brought not the hot weather of most 21st century summers, but more cool and wet. It took a bit of gumption to dive into the lake, or to clamber over the rocks into a mountain stream.

And now autumn is upon us.

Between the Lines, Gregory Dennis: When a big birthday arrives

Posted on August 17, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



All the usual clichés apply. You live your life, try to be a good person and have some fun along the way — and then one day you wake up and you’re 65 years old. How in the world did that happen?

Medicare turns out to be more complicated than they make it sound. Anybody turning 65 is grateful for it. But it’s not socialized medicine. It’s subsidized healthcare — and more expensive than many of us thought.

Gregory Dennis: 'Nah, it'll never happen' — reality TV pitch for the 'President Drumpf' show

June 2007

MEMO to: Aaron Sorkin

FROM: Dirk Diggler

RE: Your proposal for new political shows

Aaron, baby, I’m so excited to make the shows you’re proposing. Now that it’s mid-2007 and everyone is starting to think about the upcoming 2008 presidential election, I’m sure there’s going to be huge viewership for both shows.

Between the Lines: A day of hiking with 'Superman'

Posted on June 8, 2017 |
By Gregory Dennis



I met Superman in New Haven last fall.

At the time I didn’t realize that Alberto Schiavon was Superman. I thought he was just a fit and articulate Italian, in town to talk about his family’s small hotel in the Dolomites. 

Gregg and Caroline Marston, the New Haven residents who for many years owned VBT Bicycling and Walking Vacations, introduced me to Alberto at a wine-and-cheese event for friends of VBT.
