    Gritty Spartans ensure NCAA won't have awkward UConn trophy moment

    Bowl destination easy; opponent more difficult
    Virginia Tech's possible bowl opponents include both schools embroiled in the Cam Newton mess, a traditional and occasionally loathed rival, the presumptive No. 1 pick of April's NFL draft and Frank Beamer's son. The Hokies' postseason destination is...
  • Not Women's Or Men's, Just Greatness

  • Study Shows Scales Of Justice Askew When It Comes To Death Penalty

    Now that the Cheshire killers are headed to death row, we can all breathe easy, knowing that Connecticut sparingly, but justly, gives the worst of the worst the death penalty. If only that were the case. A former Yale Law School professor's long-running...
  • Stephen Girasuolo Moves Beyond The State Of 'Orange Alert'

    Stephen Girasuolo Moves Beyond The State Of 'Orange Alert'
    Stephen Girasuolo wants you to know that "Orange Alert"is not a play about 9/11. But it has haunting echoes of that tragic date as it follows six troubled people who work around Ground Zero, living their present-day lives in a state of suspended...
  • Finally, Carbon Limits On Power Plants

    I applaud President Barack Obama's climate change policy speech Tuesday. Fundamentally, he's doing what he believes is right. Ethically, he's delivering on a promise he made in 2009 to the United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen: to cut U.S....
  • Check Your Bumper Sticker At The Door

    There are inspirational posters in my doctor's waiting room. One announces to those with aching bunions, open lesions or incipient Ménière's disease, "Seeing what others don't is another kind of vision." I'm not convinced. I sit there thinking, "If you'...
  • UConn Should Live Sustainably Within Its Watershed

    "Unquenchable" is the title of Robert Glennon's scorching critique of U.S. historical water policy. The word also applies to the University of Connecticut's seemingly unlimited thirst for water. To ensure the growth of its Technology Park, hedge against...
