  • 2014 Will Be Interesting Year in Baseball, Politics

    I understand I'm a little late with this but I've been away. I think 2014 is going to be a fun year. I don't mean this in every way. The Yankees have gotten considerably stronger this off season, while the Red Sox have pretty much stayed the same,...
  • Republican Governor Candidates Building Their Bases

    Republican Governor Candidates Building Their Bases
    The race for the Republican nomination for governor is an odd and complex affair. The candidates are campaigning around the state seeking support from the 1,200 people they expect to be delegates at the May nominating convention at the Mohegan Sun casino....
  • Democratic Goons Flailing At Straw Men

    Here's something I've learned: All of the Republicans running for governor, as well as all of the Republicans thinking about running for governor, are hypocrites, liars, degenerates and probably worse. The reason I know this is because I —...

     Former VP Claims Back9Network, Recipient Of $5 Million In State Aid, Stiffed Him For $80,000
    A former vice president at Back9Network — a fledgling Hartford-based cable golf network that's received more than $5 million in state grants and loans — claims in a lawsuit that Back9 stiffed him for $80,000 he spent while a consultant for the...
  • Bring On The Nice, With A Big Side Of Civil

    Be nice. I know that's not a very profound sentiment, but it's the lesson I drew from the past week. I sense a nation and state hungry for niceness. Consider the story of how top officials in the administration of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie...

    Republicans Have Good Shot At Governor's Office, If ...
    Republicans could squander a golden opportunity to reclaim the governor's office unless they present a compelling, moderate vision to the hundreds of thousands of unaffiliated voters who will decide this year's election. Anything is possible when the...
  • The Job Of Creating Jobs

    Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's economic development program is a valid topic for critical discussion, but not the way Tom Foley is doing it. In a Jan. 2 press release, the Republican gubernatorial hopeful blasted the state Department of Economic and...
  • The Line Forms On The Right

    The Line Forms On The Right
    OK, let me get this straight. The OTHER Republican candidates for governor are Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton and State Senate Republican leader John McKinney with the very strong possibility of Sen. Toni Boucher, Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti and tea party...
  • With Year Fast Fleeting, A Happy Greeting

    Dear readers, we've come to the end of a year. It's time for my poem, delivered with cheer. I write it with gusto and plot it out happily. I swing for the bleachers, like Papi and Napoli. By bringing you joy, I couldn't be happier If I had the...
  • State Republicans Shouldn't Squander Chances

    State Republicans Shouldn't Squander Chances
    You don't hear me say this very often, but: "C'mon, Republicans, get your act together!" Lost in the shuffle of holiday madness was an article by the Connecticut Mirror's Mark Pazniokas, who noticed that the state Democratic Party is currently...
  • Jim Shea: Even With A Beard, Ted Williams Would Not Have Fit With 2013 Red Sox

    Jim Shea: Even With A Beard, Ted Williams Would Not Have Fit With 2013 Red Sox
    There was, of course, no bigger story this past week than the Red Sox winning the World Series. Those who are not Red Sox fans may disagree with this assessment, but then not being Red Sox fans, what do they know. Every year, the World Series seems to...
  • Jim Shea: Foley Cementing New Yorkers Support for CT Governor's Race?

    Tom Foley was back in the news this past week, and it had nothing to with his driving, or reports that he had become deceased, which he hadn't. This time Foley's appearance in the news was, I guess you would call it, self inflicted. He suddenly appeared...
