Earlier this year, when David Cross announced that he would be returning to perform in Burlington, he appeared to take a shot at Mayor Miro Weinberger. "Well, Burlington, you asked for it, you got it," he wrote on Facebook. "Despite Miro Weinberger doing his best to keep me out, I'm coming."
The post went viral-ish, at least in Queen City circles, shared many times by bewildered fans puzzled by the actor-comedian's apparent rift with the city's Democratic mayor.
