Secret Sandwich
Take two thick slices of Noonie's day old bread, smear Honey Cup honey mustard liberally over both. Cover both slices with green leaf lettuce. Then on one slice only lay smoked turkey on the lettuce, a tomato slice on the turkey and sprinkle it with shredded carrot. Then on the lay a slice of provolone cheese over the carrot then a green pepper ring on top of the cheese. Sprikle with sprouts. Cover with the other slice, lettuce side down. The letuce should be stuck to the bread with honey mustard so it doesn't fall off when you turn it upside down to cover the sandwich. Slice sandwich in half with a knife. Wrap in tightly in plastic wrap. Use too much wrap. Tape on label. Tadaaa! Weighs one pound. Costs Four Bucks.

The following was excerpted from a comment string on Charity Tensel’s blog “She’s Right.” It’s not plagiarized from her site. It isn’t a ‘significant portion’ of the string it’s from. It’s just an excerpt…

Look… I’m too lazy to get permission to rip it off, which I’m sure she’d give me anyway. I mean it’s about me, right…I’m just gonna do what lazy liberals always do: blow off what I really should do and just rely on the First Amendment and the ACLU pick up the pieces. I hope that’s not a problem.

"At least I'm an ass who stands behind what I say with an IDENTITY."

By "identity," do you mean "Haik Bedrosian" or "User Deleted Comment"? You've deleted literally dozens of your comments across various blogs that I've seen. Is that standing behind what you say?

The only impact anonymity has on blog discussions is that it allows a participant to speak freely, and in theory it should help to keep things out of the realm of ad hominem. I could just make up a name and you'd never know the difference, I'm not sure how that would change anything. I have no idea whether the name you use is your real name and I couldn't possibly care less.

You have continually posted hysterical rants, called fellow commenters a wide variety of profane names, told readers of your blog to "f*ck off," and attempted to derail comment threads on other blogs with a variety of childish tactics, all under what you say is your own name. Given the content of about half of your posts, I wouldn't call that brave, I'd call it stupid. If you don't understand why I would say that, then you should really, really speak with an adult about it.

Made in China
Sunday, March 26, 2006

I bought this plastic flag (shown actual size) locally not long after the tragedy that undergirded its marketing. The fact that “MADE IN CHINA” is so prominently displayed might be forgiven by many Americans because if you’re waving it (like you should be) horizontally the words are “on the back.” It is only the Chinese with their advanced educational system, who realize that regardless of orientation- stars at the top left equals proper American flag display. It is also only the Chinese, with their keen wit and 5000-year-old sense of irony who get the larger joke being played on Americans with this product. If you listen carefully you might hear roaring laughter from all the way across the Pacific. Do you get the joke? Do you think it’s funny?

Deadbeats Celebrate 2 years and 24 Shows
Saturday, March 25, 2006
BurlingtonPol has learned from an unnamed source that producers of Channel 15’s critically acclaimed “The Deadbeat Club” will slow production of new episodes from monthly to bi-monthly. Some have suggested the change was prompted by lead-singer Eva’s desire to spend more time with her her blog.

W7 Run-off Suspense...Decelles Beats Blais
Tuesday, March 21, 2006
I just got off the phone with Lori at the Clerk’s office. As of 6:00pm there have been 635 ballots cast at Hunt School and 111 absentees have come in. She expects we’ll know the winner by eight PM.

Right before that I stopped at Hunt and voted myself. Ellie was all alone with Republicans swimming all around her like sharks. She was basically hanging out with Decelles. It's just my after-work mental snapshot of the whole thing, but after-work is prime-time and it was looking pretty good for Paul in that snapshot. I gave Ellie a nice hug and went in and voted for her.

When I came out I shook hands with Paul and said it was nice to meet him. He said he liked my website. I didn’t see any Democrats, unless Leo Grennen is a Dem (I never thought about it.) I saw him and Kurt talking on the way out. I told Kurt how good he looked in that picture over on Politics VT Today. Leo said Kurt was “Number One.”

Rather than create a new post, I’ll just leave a blank space here to report the results. [ Ward 7 Run-off City Council Election Results To Be Announced Here.]*
Politics is fun.

*7:45pm: No Result
*8:10pm: No Result
*8:41pm: Lori tells me it's 451 for Paul, 382 Ellie

Congratulations Councilor-Elect Decelles!

I'll venture an educated guess and say he'll probably be the youngest member of the council, followed I think by Ashe and George. Ward Seven has a relatively older population, yet its council representation will now be the youngest.

Some Quick Stats:
1818 W7 voters cast ballots for council on Town Meeting Day 3/7.
833 W7 voter cast ballots today 3/21.
Today's turn out was 45.8 percent of 3/7's turnout.
Candidate Totals on 3/7: Decelles 713, Blais 534
Candidate Totals on 3/21: Decelles 451 (71% of original total), Blais 382 (63% of original total)

I guess JR Ewing's endorsement isn't what it used to be (unless you're talking about the owner of Ewing Place in Essex.) Don't feel bad, JR. It happened to Peter Clavelle this year too.

Seriously folks, I voted for Ellie and I had the JR graphic so I used it- But when I said "anybody but Cole," I meant it. Decelles was a good campaigner and he'll probably be a fine councilor. Plus it won't hurt my attendance any having someone closer to my own age at NPA meetings.

Ellie- you've done a fine job and have nothing to be ashamed of. The candidate who can win with an (I) next to her name is rare. You did it and should be proud. Thanks for your service. I wouldn't be surprised to see your name on a ballot again soon, but for now you should enjoy any respite you earn by passing the torch. You've earned it.

Dems field questions on Channel 17
Wednesday, March 15, 2006
Andy Montroll, Joan Shannon and TJ Donovan are live on Channel 17 right now. There have been some interesting questions from callers including ‘in the event of a major black out could we run the city on the McNeil wood-chip generator.’ Nobody knew but they seemed to doubt it. Montroll revealed that besides McNeil, the city has another, lessor known generator down by the Moran Plant made of jet engines. Now that’s some Batman Sh*t.

Another caller asked about the impending 23% Electric rate increase. Shannon did a good job of explaining that because of rising energy costs, postponing the increase would just put us in debt that amount plus interest. Andy assured the caller that the council and several other oversight entities had thoroughly scrutinized the increase and its necessity. Shannon is an excellent speaker. Montroll knows a lot. When did TJ Donovan get into politics? I must be getting old.

City Councilor Night
Tuesday, March 14, 2006
As a former city councilor I was invited to attend a special-edition city council meeting tonight during which former councilors and others gave warm send-off speeches to mayor Peter Clavelle.

Normally I would have skipped something like that, but I know it would be my last chance to see Peter sitting in that position. The first seat on the horseshoe table’s west-side, southward extension. He fits there like a glove...

Ward Seven Run-Off March 21
Saturday, March 11, 2006
It's down to the "iron lady" of Burlington politics versus the young upstart from Sandra Circle with a website under continuous construction. What might happen in this not-so-instant runoff? Had the election been an IRV, Cole supporters' second choices would have determined it. But as it is the candidates in the runoff have two more weeks to cultivate new supporters, as well as coax old ones back to the polls.

We lose the potential of those two extra weeks of campaigning and voter recruitment with IRV. Decelles, like Kiss got 39%. In the mayoral IRV election that proved to be enough. In the city council race Decelles fell a percent shy of 40, the required plurality for a first-round win.

Will new voters come to the runoff? Who will win more returning Cole voters? Who will win?

Oooooh! It's going to be tight! After writing Ellie off for the third time in a row, will the Dems come crawling back to her with their tails between their legs once again? Or will they finally break beneath a wave of anti-tax sentiment and cede the seat to a young Republican who may hold it many terms?

Letter from Hinda Miller
Thursday, March 09, 2006
Below is a letter Hinda sent out to her email list, which I'm on.
Dear Friends,
Thank you for your support throughout this campaign. I am so grateful for your commitment and the work we did together the last six months. Although we came up short in the end I will always remember the dedication, energy and sacrifice I received from so many of you.

After the results came in on Tuesday night I phoned Mayor-Elect Bob Kiss, and congratulated him on his victory. I pledge to help him in any way that I can as he begins his new and important role. He ran a remarkable race and deserves all of our support as Burlington starts a new and important chapter in the city’s wonderful history.

I am sorry that in the emotion of election night I said anything to the media more than this.

I look forward to continuing to serve you in the Senate and to learning more from each of you. Thank you.

This article from the Rutland Herald is [adjective], but I don't buy what it says about [whatever]. Considering Peter's Democratic mayoral and gubernatorial nominations and his [something], I'm inclined to congratulate the Progressives for wresting city hall back from the Democrats. Bob Kiss will succeed Peter Clavelle.

Kiss Wins Corner Office, W7 Rejects Cole
If you read how I was voting, you know I'm pleased with the election results.

Here's a quote from Hinda Miller talking to Channel 17's Rob Reiber at The VT Pub and Brewery last night:

“We took the high road. Always the high road. I can't say that for my opponents”-Hinda Miller

This sums up why you lost, Hinda. You claimed you took the "high road" and then went ahead and took the low road in the very same breath. You're supposed to congratulate the winner, not make vague, spiteful accusations on election night. Think about things, senator.

I think Burlington did the right thing last night. What do you think?

Election Occurs, Leaders Chosen
Tuesday, March 07, 2006
Congratulations to all the candidates, campaigns, election workers, voters, media and the city on a job well done. We know how to pull off elections in Burlington in a way people in other states only dream about. Our discourse is elevated. Our people really care. We should be proud of that. Democracy and all of her pillars were on display here- honest debate, widespread participation, diverse press coverage and voter turnout. The nice weather didn’t hurt, either.

Whoever won these elections, we should come together behind them now for the common good. I'm not saying change your opinions- (although you probably should) -just respect the winners and do your part to help the city. I was planning on saying that no matter who won. Now that it’s over, maybe us crazies can take a day off from obsessing about politics…(yeah, right!)

Fourth Mayoral Debate, Part Two
Next question: If the sales tax doesn’t pass, where would you cut?

Ploof: I’m against the tax. I’ll find the money in the budget. I’ll take a 40K pay cut. The people said no to the tax last time and they should again.

Kiss: Seventy-three Vermont towns have authorized a local option sales tax. Williston and Manchester have implemented it. It would bring in 2.3M split 70/30 between city and state respectively. It’s an alternative to the property tax. Replacing Clavelle means a fresh set of eyes to find efficiency solutions in city hall. I will balance the budget by July...

Fourth Mayoral Debate, Part One
Sunday, March 05, 2006
What ever happened to debate number three?

It’s hard for regular people to stay informed and involved in civics, even when it comes to local events that affect them most directly. Do you think I have the time to be doing this blahg? You people need to be thanking my wife for taking Koko and my Mom to TJ Maxx today and giving me a couple of hours to write this. Yeah, so I missed the third debate. Sue me. At least you get my take on the last one in time for the election. Poopsie says “you’re welcome.”

I arrived on “Clinton time” (late) as usual. I cracked the door to Contois and sneaked into the auditorium. I leaned against the back wall and took notes in pencil with my jacket on. There were only a few empty seats, not conveniently accessible. Many of us were opting to stand. Louie “When Cowmen Attack” Beaudin was absent, which was just as well. Bob kiss was wrapping up his opening statement...

I think there are 325 different possible ways to fill out your mayoral IRV ballot this year, but I’m no mathematician so I'm looking for confirmation.

Here’s how I came up with that. Assume you’re going to rank all five candidates. The way to figure out the number of possible ways to arrange five things is 5x4x3x2x1=120

Now assume you’re going to rank only four candidates: 5x4x3x2=120
Three candidates: 5x4x3=60
Two candidates: 5x4=20
One candidate: 5


Is that right? If so, that sure is a lot of different possible ways to vote. Would someone smart please comment and tell me if that’s right? One of the folks from Candleblog, perhaps?

Any-hoo, I just got back from the last mayoral debate at city hall. I have a pad full of notes on it, but no energy to write them up tonight. Look for that post soon.
