I saw Arnold in person at a the Association of American Editorial Cartoonist's annual convention in California a few years ago. I was shocked at how short he was. He's as tall as I and he was wearing cowboy boots. I'm 5'8", but I'll bet Hollywood could...

I'm not a big fan of the Connecticut Siting Council. They rammed super-hot high power lines deep into a quiet Middletown neighborhood right next to homes after a series of sham hearings. It was obvious they planned to do that even before the hearings...

Clue, the Parker Brothers/Hasbro board game we all know and love, inspires this one-hour murder-mystery tour and event, where locations in the iconic mansion — the Hall, the Dining Room, etc. — turn into potential murder scenes. Hartford's...
