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.

Fourth Anniversary
Happy anniversary to my wife Poopsie. If history is any guide, this means our son Koko's fourth birthday will be in two months.

"Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives."

I'd like to surprise my wife with a jaunt to a Croatian island in the Adriatic, but that's not gonna happen.

Not while I'm still temping, anyway. And not until the kids are older. Right now I just hope August turns out the way it's supposed to.

Norcross Georgia II
Friday, July 25, 2008
The mystery of who's been visiting this blog from Norcross, Georgia has been solved!

I received an email from the person on Monday. It turns out she's my half-fifth-cousin on my mother's side! Someone my mother Louise used to email about our genealogy.

Her third great grandfather Jonathan Griffin was the half-brother of my third great-grandfather Benoni Griffin III. She writes...
"One of the Benoni Griffins in our past (yours and mine, and Louise's) was married once in Simsbury, CT, had 3 children, and divorced his CT wife for adultery...A few years later, his sons show up in Vermont, one being your ancestor Benoni Griffin III. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Benoni, the divorced, married at least one more time and possibly 3 more times. In his 2nd marriage, my 3gt grandfather Jonathan Griffin was born in CT about 1777."
So my mystery reader is a "little old grandmother" and self-described Christian conservative who lives near Atlanta, and tells me she leans "more toward the profile of your blogging friend Charity."

Imagine that.

Thank you for your prayers and reading my blog cousin. Visit often!

I just got an email about a 42 year old guy from Huntington named Dan Hanson. Dan is about to embark on his third "gruel-a-thon" to raise money for the National Veterans Foundation.

From Hanson's MySpace page:

"I , Dan Hanson, am the founder of and sole rider in the GRUEL-A-THON. The GRUEL-A-THON takes place every two or three years, and is my solo, unsupported attempt to bicycle 1,000 miles in 5 days. I try to average 200 miles per day. The next GRUEL-A-THON will be from August 9th through August 13th. The route will be from my home in central Vermont, across northern New York, almost to Niagara Falls, and back the same way...

...This will be the first time that the GRUEL-A-THON will raise awareness and funds for a cause, the National Veterans Foundation (“NVF”)."

Dan Hanson will be on Church Street tomorrow (Sunday, July 20) between Sprout and Lippa's Jewelers at a colorful non-profit table with his training bike on rollers from 2:30pm to 5:30pm. Stop by to learn more and make a donation.

City Employee on Paid Leave
Thursday, July 17, 2008
John Briggs reports that Adam Cate, the city's waterfront manager has been placed on paid leave for reasons that haven't yet been disclosed to the public. From today's Burlington Free Press Online:
"John Ewing, whose tenure as Parks Commission chairman ended this week but who continues as a member of the five-person commission, said Cate was on paid leave, and added that was "all we know for certain. Everyone is anxious for this to be resolved. No one is going to know the true story until the true story is told,""
I'm not a big fan of paid leave. It's like a free paid vacation for somebody, usually because they did something wrong. Paid leave for a public employee is worse because it comes at the expense of taxpayers. Paid leave for a public employee for reasons not shared with the public, simply is not ok. Somebody needs to let us know what's going on here. Preferably Bob Kiss.

The Way We Were
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
Does anybody else get this? There's still a part of me that gets uneasy when I hit "pause" on a You Tube video, because I grew up with tape decks, and it wasn't good for tapes to leave them on pause. There was physical resistance and strain involved, and even though that isn't true with an internet video, I still look for "stop" instead of pause. Except often now "pause" is all there is, because when it's fly-by-wire, pause and stop are the same.

I was just watching 101 Dalmatians with Koko. The animation in it is made up of real drawings. Nothing but real drawings. It's such a richer, fuller experience than any of the computer-generated crap out there today. And I wonder, are there any real cartoons made anymore? I'm guessing not, since the cost of labor for the illustrators would be so high. That's sad. I wonder what the last real, drawn cartoon movie was.

John McCain told an ugly rape joke in 1986. Here's a .pdf of a newspaper article about it. The story cites Bruce Wright and Leigh Larson as witnesses, but says they could not be reached for comments at the time. Lee Larson seems to have died, but I bet the Bruce Wright in question is one of these. If you want a scoop for your blog or high school newspaper, you could probably cold-call those Bruce Wrights until you found the one who was present for the McCain rape joke and confirm what was not confirmed by the Tucson Citizen in 1986.

Things are like that. The world is small and so is cyberspace. For example, I did a post on Single Payer Universal Health Care a month ago. Now if you Google that term, my post is the #9 search result in the whole world. I find that depressing, and an indication that single payer is a long way from ever being a reality in this country.

I visited Tucson once. Nice place. I've been to the Grand Canyon twice, too. Maybe after I've been blogging a couple more years, I'll share a wild story about one of those trips to the Grand Canyon. Not yet though. I'm not ready.

In the first few months of this blog, one of my anonymous detractors commented here that I was living in the past. In a way that's true. I'm actually ageless. I'm the son of an immigrant and a direct descendant of the Mayflower. I still think about 9-11 quite often. I keep links up to blogs that haven't been updated in years. Queer Eye for the Straight Guy thinks my blog's layout is too spartan and dour.

Thanks for Reading Visit Often!

Metal Sculptures Removed from Church Street
Monday, July 14, 2008
This is sad news. The family of weird post-modern, brushed metal sculptures that have resided for many years on the east side of Church Street, just south of the mall entrance, were taken away for scrap today. I don't know why- I just saw the workers at the scene of the crime with nothing but the rectangular stone bases left of the once proud sculptures. Reminiscent of Stone Henge and used by many children for impromptu games of hide and seek, the area will now be home to nothing but brick.

Baby Born on Cherry Street
I heard that a baby was just born on Cherry Street less than an hour ago. The mother was waiting for a bus to take her up to Fletcher Allen. Paramedics got her into an ambulance in front of the bus depot at Church and Cherry and she delivered the child inside. That's all I know.

BurlingtonPol Beats Blurt II
Hey I got more traffic than the Seven Days staff blog "Blurt" again on Sunday. Final visitor score: BurlingtonPol- 76, Blurt- 72. This was a come-from-behind victory due mostly to John Odum's GMD post on the Douglas Push poll that I was lucky enough to participate in today.

Cathy Resmer shouldn't feel too bad though, as Blurt does indeed 'crush me on a regular basis.' By the way, props to Cathy for moderating the discussion on Shay's Blurt post about SVR and the LOS. The ugly comments from the VNN freaks on that sting are a wake-up call to decent people. Disturbing and incredibly stupid.

Douglas Campaign Push Polling
Sunday, July 13, 2008
Today I did a phone survey on my landline administered by a caller from Promark Research Corporation. It was obviously a push poll for Douglas and against Symington. With questions like "If you knew Symington supported early release for convicted pedophiles, would you be more or less likely to vote for her?" and "If you knew Douglas opposed tax increases..." etc.

I kept telling the caller what a ridiculous push poll it was, and he cracked up a couple of times. I ended the call by wishing him luck finding a better job.

City Council Agenda 07.14.08
Friday, July 11, 2008
Here's an MS Word .doc of Monday's City Council Agenda.

There's one permit item on the consent agenda that seems to be for an event that happened yesterday:
"6.09. SPECIAL EVENT INDOOR ENTERTAINMENT PERMIT APPLICATION (one day only) One-Half Lounge, 136 ½ Church Street , Thursday, July 10, 2008, 10:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m., DJ “MACEO” of DE LA SOUL, Playing for a Pre-wedding Party, Dancing *waive the reading, accept the communication, place it on file and ratify the Special Event Indoor Entertainment Permit Application for One-Half Lounge" [Emphasis on the date added.]
Did anybody go to that last night? Anybody know if the council normally approves event permits ex post facto? Because that's a good idea. If an event goes wrong, then no permit. It would save the city from a lot of potential liability.

Open Microphone VIII

It's too hot to blog. My nights have been restless and haunted by nightmares lately. I still haven't written up my Radio Deli interview. The presidential election is boring right now. My personal life... well... you won't be reading about that on this blog today.... except for the part where I say I'm grateful for every visit to the Huntington Gorge I get to squeeze in this summer.

The Declaration of Independence
Friday, July 04, 2008
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which
they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
