I had to visit an office at 960 Main Street in Hartford. Anyone who lived near this city prior to this century knows that address – it’s the G Fox building. G. Fox & Co. was the largest privately held department store in the United States in 1965, when it was sold to the May... Continue Reading →
For more than several years, I’ve been saddened and frustrated by the trend of replacing journalists and trained/educated specialists with analysts and actors on all things news, sports and weather.

As much as I subscribe to Ricky Nelson’s theory on what to do if you can’t please everyone, this time, I’d appreciate your input. I’ll give you a tiny (I saw that eye-roll) bit of backstory.
