After Springfield, Vt. was chosen to host Saturday's world premiere of The Simpsons Movie, a constituent emailed Senator Bernie Sanders. "Re: Springfield, Vermont being chosen as the official hometown of The Simpsons. I trust you realize that this means that Homer is now the safety officer at the Vermont Yankee nuclear power plant." The Vermont town, like the cartoon show, has a bowling alley, a prison, a pub and, yes, a nuclear power plant down the road.
Springfield, Vt. won an online contest in USA Today to pick the Springfield that would host the world premiere of the movie.
Now that Homer and Marge and Bart, Lisa and Maggie have come home to Vermont, maybe George Bush will pay a visit to the one and only state the president has never visited.
