I have been needling #vtpoli for weeks about this, pointing out that the #UVM plan brings major risk to our community.
I ask them: what is #BTV's plan when the UVM admin fail us? No response. They just say "talk to UVM". That's not a plan. It's also straight up negligent. https://t.co/07JVOUcyEv

Nearly 90 degrees after 9pm, a plague of invasive bugs eating our tree, and even more mosquitos than I can count.
Yay summer, I guess.
The heat makes me so sick, at least I can enjoy the moon.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
Not til the late nineteenth century was the doctrine of the subordination of time and change seriously challenged. Bergson and William James, animated by different motives and proceeding by different methods, then installed change at the very heart of things. Bergson took his stand on the primacy of life and consciousness, which are notoriously in a state of flux. He assimilated that which is completely real in the natural world to them, conceiving the static as that which life leaves behind as a deposit as it moves on. From this point of view he criticized mechanistic and teleological theories on the ground that both are guilty of the same error, although from opposite points. Fixed laws which govern change and fixed ends toward which changes tend are both the products of a backward look, one that ignores the forward movement of life. They apply only to that which life has produced and has then left behind in its ongoing vital creative course, a course whose behavior and outcome are unpredictable both mechanistically and from the standpoint of ends.
