Got some attention this evening on Burlington's Church Street Marketplace from this suspicious-looking band of older fellas singing in the snow.
Singing pretty damn well, too. A real treat. And the snowflakes obliged.
It's the one-and-only Green Mountain Chorus!
Just had a conversation in Uncommon Grounds about what an especially depressing Christmas Season this is given:
1. The endless Bush-Cheney War in Iraq that everyone knows is based on Dubya's success in deceiving the American people.
2. The melting ice caps and the global-warming crisis that worsens day-by-day in the Age of Exxon.
3. The cost, quality and accessibility of healthcare in our beloved America, and
4. The fact we've got more than a year left of America's worst staying in charge.
Ti's the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la,
la la la la.
