  • No Wrongdoing Here, Just Some Distractions

    You pay attention to the wrong things. That's what three politicians claimed when caught in betrayals of the public interest in the past two weeks. With no credible explanation for their bad acts, each branded their controversy a "distraction" as they...
  • Adding Hydropower To State Energy Mix Makes Sense

    A good bill to get more clean energy into Connecticut has been held up in the House. That's too bad. The House should pass the bill, which has already passed the Senate. It would likely lower Connecticut's sky-high electric rates while decreasing the...

    11/4/2011-Where Do They Find These Executives?
    Several years ago, I made Homer Simpson the head of Northeast Utilities over a different fiasco. Well, Homer's back, but this may be the last time I can use that metaphor for the world's most incompetent power plant manager. Word's out that this season...
  • Snowstorm Upsets Campaign Calculus

    Politics-as-usual ended Oct. 29 when the snow started falling. The unusual October snowstorm and the widespread power failures it caused ruined the traditional get-out-the-vote push in the last week before Election Day. There wouldn't be any knocking on...
