As a resident of New Hampshire
, living just a spit away from the old Green Mountain State
(assuming I have the salivary
power to launch one across the Connecticut River
), I can assure you that the good people of the Granite State
as something of a freakish lot
, what with their tendency to elect Socialists
and all. 1998's Vermont Senatorial
challenger Fred Tuttle
star of the indie
film "The Man With a Plan
" was a refreshing change to this. There is also the annual reggae
festival, but since I am partial to the Jamaican
sound, I perhaps should not mention it.
I will point out that Vermont hosts the World's Fair every September in Tunbridge. Really. It's a major hoot, and I recommend it highly, not the least for its demolition derby, livestock contests, and displays of the most modern farming equipment on the market. I hear it was better back in the old days when they featured cheap, carnival-like girlie shows.
