Haven't been many this winter. This is just the second one in the People's Republic of Burlington. I have a doctor's appointment at 10 a.m. downtown. That's the Freyne Land Alley all shoveled by the columnist fighting the cancer with the chemistry.
Not going to catch Cindy Sheehan in Sen. Vince Illuzzi's tent in Montpeculier at noon. Assuming she makes it in from Chicago. It's bad weather all the way.
Commander Dave put the word out via email shortly after 4 a.m. that the Statehouse is going to try to dodge the storm:
Cindy's son was an American soldier who gave his life in George "WMD" Bush's anti-American War in Iraq. And yet, there are bozos out there who compare Cindy Sheehan to Jane Fonda of Vietnam War-era fame.
Sheehan is a Gold Star Mother ferchrissakes.
George Bush and Dick Cheney were draft-dodgers.
Such is life.
