I’m crying. I’m literally crying.

Shit, that fight was so raw and simple. So stripped back from what we have had for so many chapters, it really highlights how sad this fight is. It really gives an extra oomph to the emotional side, it also comes off somewhat intimate…

Sasuke and Naruto were so desperate and just in a lot of pain, it breaks my heart to read it.

Best chapter in a long time, in my opinion.


My greatest misfortune would be to marry into a family who would carry me as their shame, as I have been required to carry my own mother. Her apparent crime to be born negro, and mine to be to be the evidence. Since I wish to deny her no more than I wish to deny myself, you will pardon me for wanting a husband who feels ‘forgiveness’ of my bloodline is both unnecessary and without grace.

One Cheese at a Time: Jasper Hill Farm and the Rise of Vermont’s Local Food Movement

"These Cheeses Sustain Vermont’s Working Landscape." So it says across the top of Jasper Hill Farms' press packet. For brothers Mateo and Andy Kehler, who founded Jasper Hill, making excellent cheese is not just about running a successful family business, it also is about revitalizing the local agrarian economy.

Central to that vision are the cheese cellars at Jasper Hill (the blueprints for which, are part of the company logo). Designed in 2006, this 22,000-foot, state-of-the-art facility features seven caves or vaults, each calibrated to produce a specific type of cheese. Here, and in their dairy and creamery, the Kehler brothers employ close to 50 locals. More broadly, they help sustain other regional dairies by providing affinage (cheese-ripening expertise), as well as marketing and distribution services. Finally, Jasper Hill plays an active role in a growing network of local craft food entrepreneurs, sustainable farmers, and educational institutions that is redefining the Northeast Kingdom as a mecca for slow food.
