"Spreads the carbon footprint"


To The Editor:

To The Zoning Board,

Please allow Small Dog to be open on Sundays. As we know, the computer has now become the hammer and sickle of The Valley's citizenry. It is the modern scythe to reap the wheat of the internet. The computer's use, even on Sundays, is a vital part of everyone's business and personal life.

To deny them their permit only forces our populous to spread their carbon footprint with car use to computer stores in Williston and tax-free Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Small Dog's building is not a "smokestack" or some edifice of some coming "Blade Runner" apocalypse. This store would contribute more to environmental abuse and decay? I will say this, for every day and every time a Small Dog customer has to leave The Valley, it is the gallons of gas at $4-plus per gallon you can be proud of saying you helped waste.

Andy Paquin
