    Tony Verna's replay vision made football a sight for millions of eyes

    Obama's Cuba decision follows change in attitudes in Florida

  • Speak Out for Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014

    What I don’t understand is that the law for “hands free” has been in effect for almost one year and, yet, people still drive talking and texting on their phones. I like the people who hold phones in their hands with the speaker on. You&...

    Lockbox Won't Stop You On Highway To Hell
    The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and in Connecticut, the road to hell is also very congested. And not all that well paved. Really, when it comes to getting to hell and back on a regular basis, you might want to ask Satan if you can...

    Review: Frontline's 'Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA'
