  • The Latest, and Least Worthy, Comic Strip Controversy at the Hartford Courant

    The Latest, and Least Worthy, Comic Strip Controversy at the Hartford Courant
    There’s been a spirited debate in the letters section of the Hartford Courant this past week. Elaine Kaufmann from West Hartford started it off in Independence Day with this shot across the bow: “Perhaps I do not have the necessary sense of...
  • Time For Murphy To Get Off The Canvas

    Remember the scene in "Witness" where the local bullies start taunting the Amish in their carts? One of them paints the face of Alexander Godunov with his ice cream cone. They're knocking off straw hats. And Harrison Ford clambers down out of the jitney...
  • Worst Deadbeat? Too Close To Call

    Everything is so close! The U.S Senate race is too close to call and so is the argument about who is the bigger deadbeat. Your choices: A) Chris Murphy, who appears to have fallen behind, at various times, on his rent, his mortgage, his property taxes,...
  • Throwing The Flag On Connecticut Candidates

    Earlier this week, for one brief shining moment, our badly divided republic came together so gloriously that Paul Ryan and Barack Obama were finishing each other's sentences. Everybody agreed that the replacement refs were ruining professional football....
  • Candidates Run Wild In 5th District Race

    One fear we harbor about our dopey Aug. 14 primary date is that freakishly low turn-out will produce a winner who is some kind horrific political mutant. This summer, in the 5th District, that fear is abated by the growing realization that pretty much...
  • Aug. 14 Primary: Day Of Reckoning

    This is the last time I will address you about issues related to the Aug. 14 primary, because the Courant does not allow us to write about the candidates on that final Sunday. This is a sound principle. Let us imagine that I wrote next Sunday: "Chris...
  • Olympic Heights And Depths: The Games People Played

    I grew up thinking the Olympics were boring and that the Summer Olympics looked mainly like an exhausting overnight camp I was glad my parents had not sent me to. Today, with 24-hour cable coverage and the vast informational petri dish that is the...
  • Candidates Burn Millions For Measly Turnout

    There's something wrong here. Permit me to bore you with some numbers. In 2010, Chris Murphy beat Sam Caligiuri 118,000 to 102,000 in Connecticut's 5th Congressional District. In 2008, a presidential year and therefore a better comparison to 2012, it...
  • Ritter's Careful, Legal, Lucrative Career

    I would like to begin by saying at no point did Thomas Ritter do anything illegal. Ritter has been working as a private attorney for the Connecticut Resources Recovery Authority. It is illegal for him to be a paid lobbyist for them, so any lobbying he...
  • Patrician Historian Ellsworth Grant Loved His State

    With Ellsworth S. Grant's passing goes a vast storehouse of Connecticut history. Fortunately, he left much of it behind in the dozens of books and articles he wrote. Writing was just one of the many ways in which Mr. Grant, who died March 6 at the age...

  • Malloy Has Taken Sandy Hook To Heart

    Watch Dan Malloy closely right now, and you might see that rare thing: A politician who has ditched politics in favor of moral seriousness. That, at least, is my current working theory of Malloy. I believe what he saw and heard in the early hours at...
