    Who booed Gov. Dannel P. Malloy when he tried to speak at the Eastern League All-Star game in New Britain on Wednesday night?

    • Gun owners.
    • Republicans.
    • The New Britain city council.
    • Fans who blamed him for the rain.
    • Opponents of the busway.
    • All of the above.

When Gov. Dannel P. Malloy attempted to greet players and fans at the Eastern League All-Star game Wednesday night at Rock Cats Stadium in New Britain, he was met with a shower of boos. The hosing followed the unveiling of a sign on the outfield wall honoring the victims of the Dec. 14 Newtown school  shootings. Though Mr. Malloy took the boos with a smile, some found it disrespectiful and inappropriate. Who might have unloaded on the governor? What do you think?
