Vermont, you are motherfucking awesome.
Not only do you occasionally have conventions to discuss leaving the Union. Not only do you manufacture maple syrup which has no rivals. Not only are you the only state in the union to have a coat of arms with a heraldically correct blazon. Not only are you the home of two U.S. presidents. ((First person to name them in a comment gets a prize. No, really.)) But, most important of all, you have more attitude than any other state in the country — a monumental accomplishment for the 49th most populated state.
And you’ve proven your gumption yet again, dear Vermont, by voting to have George Bush and Dick Cheney arrested and referred to proper authorities for “crimes against the Constitution” should they visit your green mountains or flowing streams in the future.
In the morning, I will have pancakes. And as I bring a bite to my mouth, I will think about how the syrup you have so lovingly made tastes not only of maples, but also of justice.
