FeaturesBURLINGTON- The third annual Vermont Daily Briefing/Green Mountain Daily Hamburger Summit was a huge success yesterday. This was probably the biggest yet. Bloggers, politicians, activists, cartoonists, musicians, and even radio hosts descended on North Beach for a fun time of food, stories, jokes, and awesome comradierie. It didn't matter what political stripes you wore. Everybody was friends with everyone else. The highlight was seeing gubernatorial candidates Anthony Pollina and Gaye Symington shake hands and share a laugh. It was that friendly.

Last year, Gorty Baldwin and I attended. This year it was Gorty and I, Steve West, Lee Sanderson, Frederic Noyes, and Harold (a really nice "Live & Local" listener).Here are some snapshots from yesterday's summit. Be sure to be there next year. It really is a fun time for all, regardless of political persuasion. We're all on the same page!

    How very ultra cool. And no fights!

    Thanks, Christian. It's nice to have an image to go with a nom-de-net.
