by Jordan Fenster | May 26, 2015 5:30am


There has been a spate of fatal railroad accidents in recent years, and Connecticut’s congressional delegation, perhaps more so than congressional representatives from any other Northeast state, have adopted commuter safety, both rail and road, as a cause célèbre.

That’s not to say that other issues have not been taken up by our representatives in Washington — Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-3rd District, for example, has been a powerful advocate for food safety, among other causes — but when it comes to gun violence, there appears to be almost coordinated effort.

DC NEWS JUNKIE | Senators Would Remove Ratification Deadline for 92-Year-Old Equal Rights Amendment

by Jordan Fenster | May 12, 2015 5:30am

But, almost a century after it was originally introduced, 15 states have not yet seen fit to ratify the amendment, and the deadline for ratification has long since passed.

by Jordan Fenster | May 8, 2015 5:30am

DC NEWS JUNKIE | China, U.S. Playing a Game of Chicken
