  • 'The Sing-Off' is back, bigger and better

  • Connecticut Venues With A View Of The Season's Foliage

    Connecticut Venues With A View Of The Season's Foliage
    I love our state's fall foliage. What I don't like is fighting traffic jams on country roads, or worse, hiking up some dusty path to see it. I prefer to do my leaf peeping in comfort, preferably over the rim of a martini glass. Luckily, there are plenty...
  • 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...
  • Former Lake County attorney Rolon Reed was a character who fought against rampant growth

    If intellect, energy and force of will in the 1990s could have turned Lake County from its race toward the out-of-control growth of the next decade, then Rolon Reed would have been legendary. Heaven knows he tried. The retired judge from New York with a...

    It's time for LSU's academics to catch up to our football program
    When LSU and Alabama go at it Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, there is no doubt in anyone's mind that these two are college football's premier programs.  It's #1 vs #2.  We all know that to be true.   So when it comes to athletics - especially football...
  • McManus: Presidential crystal balls

    McManus: Presidential crystal balls
    Unemployment is mired at 9%, and President Obama's poll ratings are mired too. Democrats are dispirited. Republicans are fired up and ready to go. Activists on both the right and the left are demanding change. So is there any way Obama can win reelection...

    Over the hill, under scrutiny
    A tweak. A twinge. A minor ache in the knee. A mild stitch in the side. For most of us, the process of aging arrives in what the showbiz folks call a soft open: You don't feel it in a grand thunderclap, but in a gradual series of small incidents. When...

    You too can attend Yale, sort of
    NEW HAVEN, Conn. — There's April in Paris, January in Park City and November in Tokyo. There's October in New York, resplendent in Halloween oranges, its crimson leaves choking every gutter. Then there's September on Chapel Street, which is not...
  • DeStefano: Regional Plans, Good Research Key

    If you remember New Haven two decades ago, you must tip your hat to former Mayor John DeStefano Jr. The Elm City was moribund when he took office, with empty buildings, litter blowing down Chapel Street, no sense of where it was going. Today, downtown...
