Monday's Child: Observations From the Deck



I do enjoy the view of Lake Champlain, and the sunset, from my house, even if it's just a sliver. What would improve the view? Cutting down the trees in my neighbors' back yards, sure, but that's not the answer I'm thinking of.

Hint: And some say wind turbines are ugly.

Does anyone disagree that the bane of urban life, aesthetically speaking, is power lines? Seriously offensive, IMHO.

Hey, Mayor Weinberger, how about a campaign to bury the lines in this "most livable city"? Now, that would be a lasting legacy, and way more popular than the Packard Lofts.

In 1968 some visionary Vermonters got rid of billboards, and that turned out pretty nicely. Just sayin.'
