Town Meeting Day in Vermont!

So off I go, to Town Meeting -- a grand VT democratic tradition.

So, no post until later in the day or evening, or even tomorrow. All depends how long it takes to wrestle through the annual issues of property taxes, school budgets, roads, policing, and all such as that...

If you're living in VT -- VOTE! No excuses!

Later, all.
