A Poem About War in Iraq by a Former Brattleburgher:

"They shall not return to us, the resolute, the young,
The eager and whole-hearted whom we gave:
But the men who left them thriftily to die in their own dung,
Shall they come with years and honour to the grave?

They shall not return to us; the strong men coldly slain
In sight of help denied from day to day:
But the men who edged their agonies and chid them in their pain,
Are they too strong and wise to put away?

"Bulgaria: An Intimate Look, at Putney Library, March 6

On Wednesday, March 6th, Carol and Arthur Westing will give a slide-talk titled “Bulgaria: an Intimate Look.”

The presentation will take place 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Putney Public Library. This illustrated presentation offers a glimpse at the land and people of Bulgaria, a fascinating, but little known country of southeastern Europe --- a country about five times the size of Vermont, although with about ten times its population. It is based largely on two weeks of hiking and sightseeing during July 2008 in three rural areas of western Bulgaria, but augmented by insights from three previous one-week professional visits (in 1984, 1986, and 1988) while Bulgaria was still ruled by a Communist government.
