For 74 years, Roxbury, Vermont, library patrons had to run next door to an accommodating church to answer natural calls. Now, the AP reports, the old place is getting indoor plumbing.
The new biffy en suite may be a fine thing, but let not the era pass without a salute to generations of Roxburians willing to hold on for a couple more excruciatingly cross-legged moments in order to see how Travis handles Puss Killian's note of adieu.
And then there's that other nice Vermont characteristic. Those guys actually believe the Constitution means what it says about good folks going armed, so a law-abiding guy can slip his 1911A1 in his waist band and go for a walk, no permission required. (I can carry here in Smugistan, too, but I had to ask mommy.gov.)
