"What's the second paragraph?" That is my boilerplate response when someone suggests a column idea to me. "Yeah. Right. But where do I go from there?" Not every topic is worth 700 words. So, today I will offer a few words on recent headlines in the...
The Hartford CourantLast weekend, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy tried to give Connecticut the slip to attend the White House Correspondents' Dinner. The dinner is an annual affair at which Washington-based media, politicians and celebrities get all tuxed up and bejeweled and...
