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.

Messner Hasn't Jumped Shark
Thursday, May 31, 2007
Did I mention you need a super-majority of 67% to jump the shark at BurlingtonPol? That's because it's easier to beat up on someone than it is to admit you actually like them.

In any event, the folks who think Messner has jumped the shark were only able to muster a 50% plurality, far less than the two-thirds required.

Of course the real lesson here is- even if nobody else does, as long as you believe in yourself you'll never really jump the shark.

Thanks for playing "Has Tom Messner Jumped The Shark?" and for reading

Memorial Day
Friday, May 25, 2007
My Brother sent out a Memorial Day remembrance for the four soldiers killed during his tour of Iraq in 2004. It was his sad duty to attended all of their memorial services in Baghdad.

Spc. Chad H. Drake, 23, of Garland, Texas.

Spc. Justin W. Johnson, 22, of Rome, Georgia.

Spc. Casey Sheehan, 24, of Vacaville, California.

Army 1st Sgt. Ernest E. Utt, 38, of Hammond, Illinois.

What's a liberal blogger to say?

This was how I replied:

Thanks for this. It chokes me up. As much as I feel the invasion of Iraq was a horrible mistake, I do not feel our soldiers who die there do so in vain. They die upholding civilian rule and government by the will of our people, and this maintains the continuity of our nation. By carrying out their orders, they are in fact defending America by proving that they will give everything for those ideals, even if the orders themselves make absolutely no sense. It's we the people who owe them. We owe more attention, more thought, more personal involvement in how the policies of this nation are shaped. We will self-correct, because the genius of our founders has given us the mechanisms to do so. It's all there in the Constitution. I'm sorry for your personal pain and I'm grateful for your service- not as your brother, but as an American like any other. I will say a prayer for these four great men you knew. I will remember the blessings of liberty and use them to be the best citizen I know how to be.

Socio-Economic Integration
Wednesday, May 09, 2007
From the Free Press- They talk to Ed.

From WCAX- They talk to Tom.

I don't think this is going anywhere. People send their kids to the school that's closest to their home. It's the homes that should be more integrated.

I think San Francisco is more integrated like that as a result of its hilly landscape. The rich like to live on the hills, and the poor get pushed to the valley, but since there are so many hills, rich and poor are interspersed in close proximity.

In Burlington we have the hill section, and we also have the beach so the money gets spread around here too. And let me ask you something- What's the "socio" part there for? We're talking about economic status. The baseline metric for all this bullshit is the percentage of the student body of each school living under the poverty line, so don't try to tell me there's some sociological aspect of this that isn't derived from the economic aspect itself. We're talking about class.

They might as well just come out and say they've got a utopian scheme to mix up children from different classes because they believe this will serve to...what? I don't know- lead to greater equality in the future? Raise the prospects and opportunities of all kids? Who knows?

But in the end if we do this it will probably mean a ton of paperwork and a lot of extra money spent on gasoline, and sure as shit even within the same school the kids will segregate themselves by "socio-economic" status faster than a ten year old kid in Rome can pick your pocket.

(The opinions expressed in this post are not necessarily mine.)

Fake Blog Interviews Internet Guru

Wow. According to Cathy Resmer, Zypher Teachout actually granted an interview with Politics Vermont Blog.

I wonder if she now considers that a mistake.

In a related story, "Deep Throat's" email address doesn't work any more.
