  1. It’s such an indignity that in one of the most prosperous nations on the planet that someone should have to be engaging in work like that without appropriate footwear. Since his chosen livelihood involves walking through broken glass, we as a compassionate society should be ashamed that he was doing so wearing only light slippers. The newly-ensconced Vermont Legislature should take note and find it in their hearts to come up with a new program that will address this apparent inequity. Surely if the taxpayers can afford to provide those in need with clean needles and and endless supply of Narcan, we can provide quality, affordable, and appropriate footware for those engaging in burglary. It’s the right thing to do.
