      Right?! The best. I can't bear to pay the crazy shipping charge to get them mailed in.



      As for poutine, you want it from a Canadian truck stop restaurant or something, none of those fancy fries for me. St. Hubert in a pinch, but their gravy is too thin (tasty, but thin).
      You have to get their bagels hot out of the oven. When I’m in Montreal, I always have a cutting board and bread knife in the car. I like mine with cream cheese and strawberry preserves.

      I buy the St Hubert packets occasionally. I prefer a Bordelaise sauce. Do you know of a cheese curd source? The food co-op across from Dartmouth-Hitchcock maybe? I tried the Cabot store in Queechee. Nope. I never see them. You’d think with all the cheddar made in Vermont, they’d be easy to find.

      I've seen curds in a few stores, the Coop as well as Hannafords in West Leb. and the cheese shop in Windsor next to Harpoon B

      The first time we got St-Viateur bagels, it was in person at the bakery. We got a bag, fresh and hot, then stood there in a corner of the shop where they had 1 table and no chairs and all wolfed one down, still steaming... it was bagel bliss. Rosmary & Sea Salt is my favorite.

      It's interesting how unable you are to be aware of the cause of her death given how widely published it is. It's almost like you're trying to goad people into a political discussion...

      I heard somewhere that most of the people who died of the Spanish flu didn't die from the virus itself, but from secondary infections. I don't know whether that is true, but it does suggest that why people die might not be as obvious as testing for the presence of one possible cause.

      I'm vaguely aware that RBG had some kind of cancer, but I haven't seen a death certificate or learned exactly what killed her, or whether she had ever tested positive for the Wuhan Flu/Covid-19. Feel free to shed light on the matter, but this:

      ...seems like projection. I don't get the impression that there's anything I can write that would disabuse you of your prejudice. I read once somewhere that Scalia and RGB were friends, despite their differences. Isn't it nice how some people don't let their differences retard their social graces?

      There's nothing necessarily political about describing a disease by its origin or the animal that spread it to humanity. The "Spanish" flu isn't political, neither is the "swine" flu or the "bird" flu. Your premise is simply incorrect if you believe that any colloquial label or use of a label other than one preferred by some scientists, is political.

      (Although, its certainly possible that you're one of those people to whom, "Everything is political," in which case I don't see why anyone should care whether you think any particular thing is political or not.)

      There is a valid medical concern in remembering the place, Wuhan, and its practices, where wet markets helped bridge this disease to humanity, entirely apart from your desire to project a political motive to that accurate geographical label. Is it exclusively political to want to stop the transmission of deadly diseases to humanity through wet markets? Much of this thread has been people arguing about the wisdom and efficacy of mandating mask usage. How is telling people what to do (rather than simply offering good medical advice) less "political" than remembering where the wet markets were that bridged this disease to human beings?

      Your labeling concern seems petty and somewhat arbitrary, since the label I prefer "Wuhan flu/Covid-19" or "this disease" (where context avoids confusion) has caused zero confusion. By all means, use the label you prefer when composing your own posts. I'll use the label I prefer when composing mine.

      Try not to be such a busybody. Its shrewish.

      Vermont is the same way. 17% of the residential housing stock is vacation homes. Unlike Colorado, most of the owners can drive to their vacation homes from the flatlands in 2 to 5 hours. You're not going to drive to your Aspen house for the weekend from Texas or California.

      Are "birds" and "pigs" groups of people who can be discriminated against based upon capricious naming strategies?



      No, they aren't. But the Spanish were. Your ignorance on this topic has already been dealt with, but as you insist upon repeating it, we'll cover this again: The Spanish were neutral in WWI, and while the press of other countries was naturally pre-occupied with the war, the Spanish press was free to report on a novel and deadly flu. Since all mentions of the flu were Spanish in origin, the Spanish were wrongly blamed for causing the disease.

      "Spanish flu" isn't necessarily political, as it's nothing more than the base human nature to cast blame where it doesn't necessarily apply. "Wuhan flu," on the other hand, it almost entirely political, as it blames a region and a race of people with a broad brush as being wholly responsible for a virus outbreak, whether or not they had any responsibility for the 'market conditions' you think caused the disease. You want to blame Chinese wet market practices and work to check them, fine. You blame an entire region and race of people - with whom your president is engaged in a trade war - that's pure politics, and it's hateful. It's lead to attacks in America on citizens of Asian heritage who have NOTHING to do with Chinese wet market practices.

      The use of "Wuhan flu" marks you as a bigot who cares more for political gain than actual human lives.
