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.

Open Microphone II- Electric Boogaloo
Friday, March 17, 2006
Yeah I said it. Electric Boogaloo.

I've decided to take down that last post called "American Life." Thanks to tirade, bob the optimizer, anonymous, she's right and amy for joining me in that discussion. I often blurt things and later decide I shouldn't have. That's one of the reasons me and that disclaimer of mine are like Linus and his blanket.

    This pitiful war is now three years old with no end in sight. Even a change in administration won't end it. I'm undecided about the existence of god, but if there is one, he/she cannot be happy.

    Did anyone see Chris Mathews and Andy Sullivan this morning? If I heard right, blogs/bloggers may be stepping up to the bar, even replacing NYTimes types, as a significant means of comuunication. So Haik, hang in there, peripetetic or otherwise; you are doing us, and your country, a very big favor.

  • At March 19, 2006 2:33 PM, Blogger Fells said…

    Bloggers tend to be as well informed, if not more informed than the mainstream media. I have to admit that I peruse the blogs in the morning to see if there is anything I have missed before I do my morning newscasts. Now, how I would cite a blog in a newscast is beyond me..........(Or would it get me laughed out of the media?)

    Haik, yours is one of the better blogs I have seen. Keep up the good work.

    Time to ramble on my blog......

    I lived in the UK back in '99 and read the Guardian and Independent daily on the bus ride to my class. Both papers are on line, of course, but the Independent charges a fee to see the columnists, so now I usually just check out the Guardian.

    Update your bookmarks. The Guardian unveiled a new blog/comment website last week. It is modeled on HuffPo.

    Comment from the Guardian and the Observer is featured. Readers are invited to react on articles, and their posts are updated during the day. The Guardian is way ahead of other papers for recognising that reader interaction is essential. Don't count on the BFP doing that. They don't even do it in the printed edition, despite what they tell you about 1,000s of letters received. During the fluoride ballot campaign, several of the Safe Water Advocates (of Burlington) wrote LTEs and submissions for the "My Turn" op ed pages, which I know were not published.

  • At March 20, 2006 4:29 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Don't get me wrong, the Free Press sucks, but I think when they get tons of letters on a particular issue they figure out the percentages and print a certain number based on that. I'll bet they received hundreds on floride and they can't print them all. They don't do much right but I think they're fine regarding letters. They've printed every one I've ever written.

  • At March 20, 2006 9:35 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    They also have a rule about people writing one letter per month. Not sure what you meant by "all the time" but if you wrote "all the time"......

    Switchboard on VPR will be about IRV. Tuesday at 7. Paul Burns from VPIRG will debate Sandy Baird, a Miller supporter.

    Did people see Darren Allen's Sunday piece about IRV? Check it out.

  • At March 21, 2006 8:57 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Well, tonight on Switchboard it sounded an awful lot like sour grapes. She talked about personal attacks and how the press was against Hinda. Good lord, the press reported about each of the candidates and interviewed fellow employees of each. What they found out wasn't all that favorable to Ms. Miller. Whose fault is that? I'm glad we were made aware of that. It's not an attack. She'll probably get angry and repatriate to Canada.

  • At March 22, 2006 6:31 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Right, sour grapes.

  • At March 22, 2006 7:19 AM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…

    I didn't agree with lengthening the mayors's term or changing the commissions. I didn't know there were plans to stop stagering council races. That's dangerous.

    The thing about the low turnout in Clavelle-Curley '01- it was due to a rediculous snow storm that dumped about four feet. If people used that as a reaon for these changes, then that's wrong.

    I was skpetical of IRV, but it seemed to work fine. All this 'gaming' talk around IRV is meaningless bullsh*it. "Gaming" is code for "I'm a wicked sore loser."

    The most important reform I can think of is to pay city councilors more and give the council more compensation and a bigger operating budget. I called for that 10 years ago and compensation has since jumped from $500 to $5000 per councilor per year. (I am always ahead of my time and that's usually a painful burden.)

    That still leaves a massive imbalance between the resources of the exec. and the leg. in Burlington, but it's a start. I couldn't even use my operating budget to buy a computer when I was on the council. It's a joke. It's like- represent thousands of people, vote on spending a quarter-billion dollars- but do it in your spare time with no help and no money. Look at the mayor's tools, resources and compensation. Can you say "civic imbalance?"

  • At March 22, 2006 8:37 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    It was no more of a game for Curley to select a second choice than it was for every Democrat in the world to endorse Hinda Miller. If she were a good candidate, she would have won.

  • At March 22, 2006 11:27 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    The mayoral term should be scaled back to two years. It's common knowledge that it was only extended to accommodate Clavelle's gubernatorial aspirations.

    "The thing about the low turnout in Clavelle-Curley '01- it was due to a rediculous snow storm that dumped about four feet."

    And the plows didn't visit the NNE until ten minutes after the polls closed. What a surprise.

  • At March 22, 2006 1:26 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…

    Yes. Let's scale it back to two years. If you have a petition, I'll sign it. Put it to a vote, I'll vote for it. If it's good enough for the governor and the US House, it's good enough for the friggin mayor. Three years is crap.

  • At March 22, 2006 4:13 PM, Blogger Charity said…

    You can listen to the podcast of the Switchboard broadcast about IRV here on the VPR website.
