A rambling train of thoughts about the universe and our micro solar system consisting of our dear Sun and other planets in a magnetic dance while we hurtle through space on the face of a rock and stare at flat screens where we attempt to connect while we detach.

Chapter 2 #Vermont #fracking #pipeline update
Opportunity to Attend Hearing
The Supreme Court has (astoundingly) said it wants the names of everyone who wants to attend the April 4 hearing about whether it is legal for Vt Gas to use eminent domain to construct its pipeline through Geprags Park.
We need to let the Court know that there are at least 100 of us who want to be there. I believe the Court will move the hearing to a bigger space if it knows there are a lot of people who want to attend.
The hearing will be "oral argument” which consists of the lawyers stating their cases, and members of the Court asking them questions. It will last about an hour and is very formal. (no signs, no cheers or boos, etc.) The hearing will last one hour. It is scheduled to take place in the Vt Supreme Court courtroom in Montpelier on April 4, 9-10 a.m.
If you would like to attend, please send a respectful email to
