From: Shirley Ison Westport Columbus has much pride in its beautiful buildings, the many opportunities for education and employment, etc. It hosts people from many states and nations.

It's more than a fat cat spat. The Big Mules are stubborn. They don't always pull in the same direction. Big Mules, the yoke of history tells us, pull for themselves. The mules, who have long ruled Alabama, usually do their dirty work in dark board rooms and back rooms once filled with smoke but now fogged only by the air of entitlement. But not this week. Alabama Power Co., a king of the mules, pulled support from the Business Council of Alabama, a nouveau mule set up to do the bidding... [Read More]

UConn president Susan Herbst has upheld the dismissal of Kevin Ollie as men's basketball coach, and the situation is going to arbitration. Herbst sent a letter to UConn AAUP executive director Michael Bailey on Tuesday terminating Ollie in what Bailey said was the "last step in a calculated process to replace Coach Ollie without paying him the amount due to him under his employment agreement with the University of Connecticut." Ollie was fired on March 10 for "just cause" after six seasons at the helm, with more than $10 million left on his contract. Less than two... [Read More]

After skimming Mr. Beem's article last week in your periodical I had to stop, reread it and take inventory of its vocabulary. He is quite verbose. Twelve uses of "ugly" and 31 very derogatory words describing people he disagrees with. I must say, the amount of churning stomach acid produced to get this article to... [Read More]

I am offended by the piece written by Serafin Mendez-Mendez regarding the Lieutenant Governor's race that appeared on the New Haven Register's webpage. It is amazing to me that Mendez-Mendez, a professor of communications at CCSU, criticizes the endorsed Democratic Lieutenant Governor candidate, Susan Bysiewicz, by remarking on the shoes she wears. I would hope that we are in an age where all people, including women, can be respected for what they have done with their lives rather than the shoes and clothes they wear. [Read More]
Anthony Bourdain a celebrity chef, author, and travel and food TV star hung himself in his hotel room in France. Fame and fortune crashes again. Perhaps he was inspired by the famous lady designer, Kate Spade, who took her life just a few days before. I get the feeling these people don't know when to quit, or slow down, or take a long vacation for themselves. They are trapped in their success and have to sustain and maintain it even when the fun and pleasure has long gone. Because if there is enough pleasure in your life the chances... [Read More]
