I spoke with three Burlington bartenders who spent much of Tuesday calling the center. One called 44 times before she got someone on the line. One called 49 times until she did.
One still hasn’t got through. “I just feel helpless,” she said. #btv #vtpoli

It's amazing how full the roads still are given the lockdown. I'm not sure where that traffic is coming from. Sure, not everyone is working from home. But restaurants are closed, shops are closed, and many people are quarantining. Where are all the cars coming from?

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
Undoubtedly it is our duty, and for our best good, that we occupy and improve the faculties, with which our creator has endowed us, but so far as prejudice, or prepossession of opinion prevails over our minds, in the same proportion, reason is excluded from our theory or practice. Therefore if we would acquire useful knowledge, we must first divest ourselves of those impediments and sincerely endeavor to search out the truth: and draw our conclusions from reason and just argument, which will never conform to our inclination, interest or fancy; but we must conform to that if we would judge rightly.
