VT Blog: Vermont Commons

The indefatigable secessionists of the Second Vermont Republic have at long last begun to blog. It was only a matter of time. Every week I check my Seven Days mailbox, and there's a new press release from them. Hopefully now that they've embraced 21st century technology, they'll no longer need to waste paper and a stamp and can send their missives via email.

Their new blog is called Vermont Commons. It's associated with a monthly journal of the same name. So far it's been written entirely by Rob Williams, a writer, musician, and multimedia producer who lives in Waitsfield, and is the president of the Action Coalition for Media Education.

In yesterday's blog entry, Rob invites everyone to come to tomorrow night's debate on Vermont secession between UVM professors Alfred "Tuna" Snider and Frank Bryan. It's at 7 at the Royall Tyler Theater, and it's free. I mention it because Tuna's an iconic, charismatic guy, and a fantastic speaker. I'm going if I can tear myself away from my mountains of work.
