the mythic little town of Brattleboro...

Ah, the lyrical, intimate little villa along the Connecticut River ensconced in the lower right corner of the Green Mountain State, abutted by New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Cozy!

Poets will now sing the praises of its people.

I too will bang the drum slowly.

Of course there will be peanuts thrown from the under imaginative gallery:
"Has everyone up there been out in the cold too long?" said one.

"I would like to know how I could get some water from your town," said another. "It's obvious that there is something special in it."
So it's official: Brattleboro will vote March 4th on whether to arrest George Bush and Dick Cheney should they dare show their faces in the land of Cherry Garcia:
"Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictments for consideration by other authorities and shall it be the law of the Town of Brattleboro that the Brattleboro Police, pursuant to the above-mentioned indictments, arrest and detain George Bush and Richard Cheney in Brattleboro if they are not duly impeached, and prosecute or extradite them to other authorities that may reasonably contend to prosecute them?"
All in favor say "Aiyeeee!"
