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.

    "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. "
    - George Orwell

    This is one of my favorite Orwell quotes. Liberals love to quote him. I wonder what they think of this one.
    They should consider it the next time they are complaining about the military or the police.

    He made that quote back when we went to war for the right reasons. I wish he were alive to witness this mess. I'm sure he'd make a wonderful statement we could quote. I have no trouble complaining about this war, the thousands of dead soldiers who died for no logical reason, the tens of thousands of civilians, women and children, lives wasted, for nothing but lies.

    How about that glorious tent city on the UVM Green? I was going to go set up a tent, but then I then I woke up and remembered that Mario Savio is dead and the forecast says rain.

  • At April 13, 2006 9:19 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…

    Huh? There's another tent city? Remember when Dean Davis climbed that ladder to negotiate with the students that took over Waterman? ...Ah, I doubt anybody does... I can't even remember what that was about.

    I'm a student of language and have always been fascinated how people use words, whether it be in corporatese, political spin, every day conversation, or newspeak.

    Of late, I've been taken by the language currently used in the immigration debate.

    Today on Fresh Air with Terry Gross (NPR), there was a commentary by Geoff Nunberg, a linguist professor in Berkeley, CA on "The Permutations of 'Alien'." It's worth a listen..

    RIP William Sloane Coffin.

    Mr Coffin died yesterday in Strafford. He, along with Eugene McCarthy and David Dellinger, inspired me to become more active in the peace and civil rights movements.

    I stand corrected. Thank you for that info Cutis.

    Hey! I'm in Providence, RI with Poopsie and Koko for the weekend. Tomorrow we're going to the zoo and Sunday Poopsie's cousin will take us to an Easter service at an Armenian church. I haven't done that in about 25 years. It should bring back memories.

    Happy Easter!

    Anybody see 60 Minutes about the crime wave in China believed to be caused by their surplus of men and shortage of women for them to marry? They didn't mention it, but think of the military recruitment possibilities of a nation with tens of millions of incredibly frusterated unmarried young men with no familiies to live for. It's scary.

    In other news- sources say Burlington's beloved Five Spice Cafe is to be sold soon by its owner Jerry. Perhaps you heard it here first...

    It's Monday April 17, 2006.

  • At April 17, 2006 12:34 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    The Five Spice is owned by 4 different people -- among them is Ginger, who is not married to Jerry.

  • At April 17, 2006 1:35 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…

    Are the other two married to Jerry?

    Maybe Jerry's selling his share. I don't know. I'm just spreading a rumor I heard.

  • At April 17, 2006 2:19 PM, Blogger Bob said…

    That problem in China has been around for a while. I saw something on the wife trade there years ago. Basically, young girls were being taken from rural villages and sold in cities. The story featured a guy who had rescued about 100 of these girls.
    The government should have thought a little harder about the one child per couple law, especially knowing how male children were preferred. Maybe an exception that would let you have a second child if the first was a girl.
    See that Haik. American ingenuity could have saved them a lot of trouble. Of course, we tried to warn them about their impending population problem in the 1950s, but they thought we were trying to subvert their communist greatness. Oh well.

  • At April 17, 2006 11:44 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Just read something astonishing (well, not so astonishing when you realise how the current fascist administration has morphed the war on terror into a war of fear)....

    Talk Left blog, one I read daily...has this post about what's happening in the Big Apple.

    Smile for the camera

    Your movements are recorded as you walk the streets of major cities. You know that private security cameras watch you shop for sweaters, but city streets have always been anonymous, a place to be lost in the crowd. Until now. The hope of finding private moments in a public setting, you now realize, is so last century.

    Read the whole post...

    In Burlington, I suspect there are already cameras all up and down Church Street and even at certain intersections in the city.

    And BPD has said they want to use tasers on our fellow citizens. I've heard nothing about it further since it was reported last year in Seven Days. Has anyone else?

  • At April 18, 2006 5:48 PM, Blogger Charity said…

    Hey, Haik. Here's a great Bush quote for your below-the-title random quote of the day: "I'm the decider and I decide what's best."

  • At April 19, 2006 3:58 PM, Blogger Bob said…

    The BPD probably said that after that gang member fired shots on Church St.
    The taser is a non-lethal alternative to deadly force (aka guns). It's a pretty good idea if you look at it that way. Especially since the police can't fire in a crowded area (like Church St).

  • At April 19, 2006 9:09 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…

    "And BPD has said they want to use tasers on our fellow citizens."

    I doubt they actually put it that way. I don't have a problem with police using tasers. It's better than guns.

  • At April 19, 2006 10:02 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…

    Hmmm. Interesting point. I had a friend once (also a republican) who didn't believe in seatbelts for the same kind of reason. He said it gave people a false sense of safety and made them drive less carefully.

    You make some good points Kevin. But here's a question- What happened to the plane that hit the Pentagon? Where did it go?

  • At April 20, 2006 9:54 AM, Blogger Bob said…

    "You give BPD tasers, they'll use them 200 times in the first year, watch"
    That's absurd. Police have guidelines for everything. Criteria have to be met before they can even draw thier guns, let alone shoot them. Do you think tasers will be any different?

    "Can you imagine BPD using a firearm on a drunk downtown? Ok, now imagine the likelyhood of use of a taser in the same situation."
    Subdueing drunks is usually done by hand. If they are violent, the police might pepper spray them or use their clubs. They will not start zapping them just becuase they got tasers.
    All having tasers will do is give the police a non-lethal alternative when they can't use lethal force, such as drawing a gun on Church St.

  • At April 20, 2006 9:55 AM, Blogger Bob said…

    When was the last time anyone heard of the BPD using excessive force anyway?

  • At April 21, 2006 12:04 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…


    I was just giving you shit about that 9/11 conspiracy show you were on. That's all,

  • At April 21, 2006 7:32 PM, Blogger Haik Bedrosian said…


  • At April 25, 2006 1:40 PM, Blogger Bob said…

    "Actualy, Bob, most uses of force do not get wide exposure in the press, and so any excess would also not be reported."

    Yeah, right.
    People in this town live to protest. Police brutality would clear out half of UVM, even the tent city folk would leave their tents just to be there!

    Taser the jaywalkers!

  • At April 27, 2006 9:27 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    "Taser the jaywalkers!"

    Be careful what you wish for.

  • At May 03, 2006 10:38 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    Anyway, speaking of sunshine; we'd like to see the BPD create a civilian link to the civilian community. Have a door civilians may enter without being photographed, videotaped, and the like just to pay a parking ticket.

    Creates the feeling it's 'them' against 'us'. Just more meat ax mentality/bunkerized bullying/overkill. Wonder if the commissioners get patted down.

    Besides, re that sunshine. Rumor has it that AP has released the letter they sent to Chris Graf.

    Brings back the good, very old days when some media were expected to assure 'equal time' to politicians of differing stripes.

    Limbaugh's in, Leahy's out.
