She blazed through her first game
And then lost the lightning her second time out.
We cheered for her, all the way.
The City of Hartford began Election Day unable to check in voters at some sites because the printed books of registered voters had not been delivered. “Hartford Has It” did not, apparently, cover these.
To make matters worse, some voters were simply sent away without being offered an affidavit or provisional ballot. This, in a city of three (3!) well-compensated Registrars of Voters. These people make a lot of money. For most of the year, they have nothing to do. They should be placed in colonial stocks and pillories (I never did quite figure out the difference) and whipped by pirates.
The primary damage is, of course, to each affected voter’s right of suffrage. Secondary damage to Dan Malloy, who needs those Hartford votes. The governor votes at the Hartford Seminary one of the sites that didn’t have the books. They arrived after 7 in response to ecumenical prayers. The governor was apparently obliged to wait about 30 minutes to vote. The Secretary of State, who lives two blocks from the Seminary site, and voted by affidavit.The tertiary damage will come if a court decides to extend voting hours at sites that were shut down this morning. Let one thousand conspiracy theories bloom.
Bridgeport, you will need to put on a late surge of incompetence if you want to compete here.
People who say “um” sound goofy.
One has to be careful about putting too much weight on Daily Mirror reports, but if even most of this story of a Stamford man who faked his own death to get out of a wedding is true, it’s one for the ages.
But now you get screamed at for an innocent error. (This is why you should never talk to anybody.)
…one local inquisitive 4-year-old boy asked a question that got him banned from a Monroe doughnut shop.
“We were screamed at in front of the door, ‘he’s not allowed in here, he’s rude’,” said Rebecca Denham as she described her experience at the Doughnut Inn on Tuesday morning.
Denham said her son, Justin Otero, asked a woman at the doughnut shop if she had a baby in her belly.
When the woman said ‘No’ Otero apologized, and his mother said she was mortified.
