the once and future republic of vermont

looks like i'm moving to vermont. any state with a strong(?) grassroots secessionist movement has got to be a good place to raise a family. the wapo has a short article on the subject as well. choice quote:
After the Great Flood of 1927, the worst natural disaster in the state's history, President Calvin Coolidge (a Vermonter) offered help. Vermont's governor replied, "Vermont will take care of its own."

  1. Yes, Vermont is totally kickin. They make their own rules. Sometimes, when I tell people that I'm from near Burlington, they say "Vermont?" and I have to disappoint them by saying no. Sad.

  2. I just wish their winters weren't so harsh.
