No Chill 'Til Chicago

by Jordan Adams, Seven Days

Over the years, we here at Seven Days have noticed an amusing phenomenon: We profile an interesting person in Vermont's arts community and, less than a year later, they announce they're leaving town. I recently passed my one-year marker with the paper, and I can attest to some truth in it. Browsing the annals of my coverage, I noticed that no fewer than five people I've spotlighted no longer reside in the 802. What's up with that? Is it something we said?

Dan Bolles, Seven Days

Adam Mamawala has a way of tackling weighty subject matter with equal measures of insight and charm.
