Sit on it

Over at Hall Monitor, intrepid blogger/journalist Darren Allen of the Vermont Press Bureau chides the Vermont House of Representatives Institutions Committee for trying to buy new chairs — for $41,000. Governor Douglas did not include that item in his proposed budget.

Allen writes: "$41,000 for chairs is two drug counselors in schools," one administration wag told me. "I guess they find it more important to cover their posteriors than protect high school children."

Incidentally, it appears that Allen is the state's first official paid journalist/blogger. He beat me by a couple months, I guess.
