Ah yes, Bernie. He is much loved here, even by those who very much disagree with his politics. I think what people like is that he is what he says he is. An honest man is so extremely rare amongst the political class. It’s too bad the honest one had to be a socialist. Regretfully for those of us in VT, he is bringing the whole socialism thing out of the shadows. In today’s paper there was an article about what to do about our high property taxes with a perfectly absurd socialist solution that you don’t want to get me going on.
