The host blog changes weekly, but you can always find the current carnival at the blog that started it all, this week’s host Why Homeschool. (Of course, you can [...]

In the continuing struggle to decide how to vote next week (actually sooner, probably, since I have an absentee ballot), here is a compelling piece by Dennis Prager, from today’s Town Hall.
I hope this is not a copyright violation, but I am going to post the whole thing here.
Note to angry Republicans: Stay angry, but [...]

I hope to get a longer post up later. I’ve been busy with Halloween preparations today. I am having a little party for the kids instead of taking them out for ticks and treats.

Okay, this is the last thing I am going to post on the Lieutenant Governor race, I think. There are many other races I want to get into. (Oh, and Bob just came in with my absentee ballot! Yeah!)

People are focusing on the salary of the lt. governor instead of the history of the office. I have always known the lt. governor [...]

In today’s Vermont Daily Briefing, VDB expresses his frustration at Martha Rainville’s failure to sit down for an interview with the clearly left-leaning, anti-Rainville blog. Imagine that.

Okay, full disclosure: we were a smidgin disappointed when you guys cancelled the interview we’d spent a few months discussing. If we’d known that our coverage of [...]

I feel bad that I haven’t updated in a while. I know what a bummer it is to go to one of my favorite blogs and find it hasn’t been updated. Of course, that assumes this is a favorite blog of somebody.
I haven’t really had a lot of time for some reason. Oh yeah, I [...]

A while back, She’s Right reader VermontPaleocon, who now is actually a New York Paleocon, opined that I might be a Crunchy Con because I am into natural and organic food, beauty products, cleaners, and so forth.
He suggested I check out Rod Dreher’s book, “Crunchy Cons: How Birkenstocked Burkeans, gun-loving organic gardeners, evangelical free-range farmers, [...]

I haven’t had a lot of time to blog, but I have a few topics I would like to talk about, so I am going to do a Vermont Hum-style post with multiple topics. My titles will not be as clever, though. And sorry, no Five Corners Update.

Wal-Mart announced yesterday that it will [...]
