  • Child Of The Senate, Now One Of The Old Guard, U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd Prepares For Departure

    Child Of The Senate, Now One Of The Old Guard, U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd Prepares For Departure
    Seated before a bank of cameras in the clubby, wood-paneled confines of a Senate hearing room one morning last week, Christopher J. Dodd looked completely at home. The silver-haired senator was poised to take the gavel for the final time as chairman of...

    According to the Connecticut disaster Center, Connecticut ranks 42nd in the country for frequency of tornadoes. That's a relief to me. I grew up in Indiana, which seemed to rank first. I know that's not true, but every spring, it was a tornado warning, or...

    If I thought the world was coming to an end Saturday, first thing this morning, I'd go to the Bentley/Rolls Royce dealership in Greenwich across from the train station and buy one of each. I would drive one and hook the other to the back with a tow bar. ...

    I grew up in the Midwest and recognize the weather conditions that can cause tornadoes. It was hot and extremely humid Wednesday and a cold front was sweeping toward the East Coast. This system had spawned violent weather in the Midwest, so all that day,...

    I'm not a big fan of the Connecticut Siting Council. They rammed super-hot high power lines deep into a quiet Middletown neighborhood right next to homes after a series of sham hearings. It was obvious they planned to do that even before the hearings...

    This whole busway thing sounds like one of those Connecticut insider deals where somebody gets rich at taxpayer expense. Follow the money. I'll bet if you followed it far enough, you'd find some rich donor (or two) to both political parties in Connecticut...
  • Bridgeport Legislators Seek Settlement In Education Funding Case

    Bridgeport legislators on Thursday began a campaign to pressure Gov.-elect Dan Malloy to negotiate a settlement in a 5-year-old lawsuit that calls for overhauling the way the state pays for its public schools. At the core of the suit, Connecticut...

    I never thought I'd live to see the day when Connecticut would do something that made sense as far as drug laws are concerned. Understand that this was the last state to legalize birth control back in the 1960s.   All over the the world, health agencies...

    July 12, 2011-The WTF Economy
    I was considering a cartoon about Rupert Murdoch and his troubles with his hackers at News Of The World in London, but as you can see, I ultimately decided not to draw it. I like to draw cartoons mostly about issues that will affect us hard working...
  • Windham Schools: Moving In The Wrong Direction

    Windham Schools: Moving In The Wrong Direction
    Five years ago Windham had a blue-ribbon school. The small, blue-collar community in eastern Connecticut, which includes the city of Willimantic, had a nationally recognized urban elementary school and Windham schools were considered to be among the best...

    Smoking Can Be Hazardous To Your Buzz-June 23,2011
    If the high price of cigarettes isn't going to stop people from smoking, the gory pictures on the back of the pack won't. A pack of butts now is around $8 in Connecticut. I smoked two packs a day when I was smoking cigarettes, so that would be $16 a day,...
