OP-ED | Here Are The Facts, Malloy’s Economic Record Is A Strong One

by Sean Goldrick | October 24, 2014 2:10pm

In the old TV detective series Dragnet, Jack Webb’s Detective Joe Friday was famous for saying, “Just the facts, ma’am.”  So channeling my inner Jack Webb, here are the facts.

OP-ED | Black Conservative Leaders Talk Guns, Civil Rights and the GOP

by Suzanne Bates | October 24, 2014 1:44pm

When Sonnie Johnson broke into her spoken word poem, A Moment of Clarity, about her journey from the projects in Richmond, Va. — the daughter of a biological mother addicted to crack and an alcoholic father — to her job today as a tea party activist and founder of the website Change the Game, it was clear this was a different kind of conservative panel.

OP-ED | One Corner, Six Elections (2004-2014)

by Susan Bigelow | October 24, 2014 1:26pm

Every other year, during election season, I go to a specific corner near my home in Enfield and take pictures of the election signs campaigns have posted there. I’ve been doing this for a decade, now, and the result is my own very minor contribution to local election history.

OP-ED | Holding My Nose To Vote For Q1

by Terry D. Cowgill | October 24, 2014 5:30am

ct.gov
When Connecticut voters walk into their polling places on Nov. 4, they’ll experience an uncommon occurrence: they’ll be voting for more than just candidates for office. For reasons that will be explored later in this column, these sorts of ballot questions are unusual in our state. And this one will be notable for its tautological quality: voters will be voting about . . . voting.

OP-ED | On Responsibility, Sports, and Parenting

by Barth Keck | October 23, 2014 8:00am

As a Baltimore native and lifelong Orioles fan, I was disappointed with their recent elimination from the playoffs. Nevertheless, I was heartened by their successful season, especially since prognosticators gave them no chance of winning anything this year.

On Oct. 7, several hundred friends and supporters gathered for the grand opening of The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine on the University of Connecticut Health Center campus in Farmington. This will be the newest branch of The Jackson Laboratory — a nonprofit research institute that has been a pioneer in genetics research for 85 years.

OP-ED | Joe Must Go

It’s time for you to go, Joe. You’ve probably worked harder than anyone else in the race for governor, but in your heart you know you can’t win.

OP-ED | Bipartisan Lack of Integrity Destroys Confidence in Political System

by Sarah Darer Littman | October 17, 2014 11:57am

Last Friday, I attended the funeral of a much-loved relative, a brilliant man who had a long, successful career as an international tax partner at a Big Four accounting firm. One thing that struck me while listening to a succession of moving eulogies, particularly as a political writer living in “Corrupticut,” was the number of times people used the word “integrity” in describing him.

Sadly, integrity is a trait that’s increasingly rare in politics. In fact, in the last 24 months, I’ve begun to despair that we will ever shed our state’s reputation for an ingrained culture of political malfeasance.

Integrity isn’t a partisan issue — or at least it shouldn’t be. I’m sick of hearing political figures decry corruption in the other party, while remaining silent about unethical folks in their own.

OP-ED | Cut Out the Ebola Panic and Get Informed

by Susan Bigelow | October 17, 2014 9:27am

How quickly it all has come home. A few weeks ago we could forget about Ebola in our smug, self-satisfied, American way. After all, it was “over there,” in African countries we can never remember the names of, killing people whose lives we don’t value. But now this disease is right here in our own backyard, and it has our full attention.

by Terry D. Cowgill | October 17, 2014 5:30am

Question: What kind of person would you want to steward upward of $30 billion in pension assets and manage a busy office of about a dozen people whose business it is to look after the retirement plans of about 194,000 workers?
