    Happy Mother's Day to all moms everywhere. Your job is harder now than ever before, what with all the so-called "role models" out there. I hope you have the strength and courage to reject them and just be yourself.     Stop by the Mark Twain House...

    For those of you living in states where the nanny culture is not in control of your everyday life, here's what's going on. The Democrats in Connecticut's House of Representatives have approved a bill that would attach warning labels to Internet dating...

    I hope the governor's bluffing with these 4,742 layoffs, particularly the state Department of Education and that nonsense about closing the vocational high schools. Talk about shooting ourselves in the foot and eating the seed corn, if I may be allowed to...

    The Arab Spring has sprung. It's going to be interesting how all these countries in turmoil today shake out in the end. There's not a lot the U.S. can do about it, either. Ideally, I'd like to see representative democracy take over, but even that could be...

    According to the Connecticut disaster Center, Connecticut ranks 42nd in the country for frequency of tornadoes. That's a relief to me. I grew up in Indiana, which seemed to rank first. I know that's not true, but every spring, it was a tornado warning, or...

    Nothing is going to change in the Middle East until Hamas gives up its written charter that says Israel has no right to exist. Any country that can succesfully defend itself against invaders has a right to exist, something Israel's done many times, and...

    If I thought the world was coming to an end Saturday, first thing this morning, I'd go to the Bentley/Rolls Royce dealership in Greenwich across from the train station and buy one of each. I would drive one and hook the other to the back with a tow bar. ...
