Vermont Blog Roundup -- Post-Election Edition

What a week this has been! I'm totally exhausted, and ready for some downtime. How about you?

We're probably all taking a bit of a break for the next couple days. So before I head out, I want to leave you with some links, lest you wander over here over the weekend looking for something to read:

  • What's Good blogger Max Bookman has been following the Chitteden 3-4 House race for the past month. He did some wrap-up interviews with Dave Zuckerman, Chris Pearson and rep-elect Kesha Ram. Pearson lost to Ram. "I never was the most popular when I was at UVM," he says, "so I guess this shouldn't be a surprise."
  • Vermonters Bill and Jane Stetson were in Chicago on election. They shared the experience on Philip Baruth's Vermont Daily Briefing.
  • Software developer Julie Lerman had some unusual visitors at her office this week. Yep, this is what it's like to be a software developer in Vermont.
  • Blogger Steve Benen of Essex Junction appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show again this week. That's the vid I've embedded here. Steve is not sitting in an actual library — apparently that's a super-swanky WCAX studio.
  • And last but not least, a Gen Xer essay from Salon that someone in my Facebook network posted. It starts out, "Dear boomers: We're sorry for rolling our eyes at you all these years.We apologize for scoffing at your earnestness, your lack ofself-deprecation, your tendency to take yourselves a little tooseriously." You can probably guess where this is going.

Have a great weekend!
