This post o' the week comes from Philip Baruth at Vermont Daily Briefing . He writes about a peace rally in Rutland last weekend that drew a bunch of folks. Find a shorter version of his post on the letters page of this week's Seven Days.
And if you're looking for interesting reading, you might pick up Philip's 1999 novel about Burlington called The Dream of the White Village. It's actually a collection of interwoven short stories that touches on the two degrees of separation thing we've got going on here. I read it in a book group years ago and really liked it. And I'm not just saying that because I was on VPR with the guy.
