  • Furor hurts, mystifies family

    The Harris family's life began to unravel around dawn on the last day of August. R.J. Harris, who is 77, was in bed when a noise jolted him awake. Bam. What was that? Bam. It sounded like an explosion. Bam. The front door swung open and officers in...
  • Patt Morrison Asks: Hard lessons with Michelle Rhee

    No one, it seems, is lukewarm about Michelle Rhee; she's a pass-fail figure, inspiring or polarizing. In the name of reforming public schools, the onetime Teach for America teacher, depending on your viewpoint, either trailblazed or bulldozed her way...
  • Voter ID laws uphold system's integrity

    Two recent bulletins place progressive outrage about voting rights in interesting perspective. Item No. 1: The latest "Pew Center on the States Report" found 24 million invalid voter registrations and nearly 2 million dead people still on U.S. voter...

    Co-worker friending and cubicle dancing
    If you're mad it's Monday, remember: Tuesday is just a Monday that has had an extra day to practice. (I'll give you a moment to think about that.) OK. As much as I'd like to be a philosopher, I remain a newspapery question-answerer. So, on to the...

  • Look into my crystal ball for 2013 big news

    Look into my crystal ball for 2013 big news
    Thirteen is lucky. Or unlucky, depending on which hype you believe. I see 2013 shaping up to be a year just like any other with lots of highs, lows and plenty of wacky in between. My top predictions .... George Zimmerman will lose his "Stand Your...
  • Gun Violence Requires Focus On Young

    Seven years ago, I disagreed with a New Britain minister — who once was my pastor — when he started a petition to bring metal detectors to the high school. His well-intended response was to allegations that a student at the school was found...
  • Why I Don't Keep A Gun In My House

    After the Newtown massacre, a friend asked me if I kept a gun in my house. No, I do not, for several reasons. The first is personal experience. The last time I had a gun in my place of residence was in Vietnam. In early 1970, my Army unit moved to the...
  • Gun Debate Loaded With Red Zone Anxiety

    In the bustling hallways of the state Capitol on Wednesday, the first day of this legislative session, a few of us fell to talking about Joel Gonzalez — although, tragically, nobody could remember his name. Gonzalez showed up for a gun legislation...
  • Malloy Misses Chance To Lead, Set Tone

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's state of the state address Wednesday began with notes of promise. It started with a meditation on the slaughter of innocents in Newtown last month. It would have been appropriate for the governor to devote his speech only to the...
