Ned Lamont to join us for Drinking Liberally

We just got word that Ned Lamont will be joining us Southeastern Connecticut Liberal Drinkers at our next get together. This is a chance for all of you folks who have thought about coming, but never quite made it, to come join us and meet the man who is the current front runner for the […]

Capuano moves to muzzle the corporations

An intrepid young reporter at the Boston Globe (who shall go unnamed, but whose last name rhymes, and more, with mine) informs us that US Representative Michael E. Capuano (who in retrospect should have been nominated for the Senate) has come up with a nifty way to all but nullify the recent court ruling handing […]

Senate turns down a stupid idea.
