Do you know, I was born and raised in Darien, CT and until this moment, no one has ever asked me what people from CT are called? I think we just say, "I'm from Connecticut"!

I like Connecticutters. I also like what Brian said.

Did you know that if you add "You" before Connecticut it's

you connect I cut

I was thrilled to learn that in second grade.

It's heartbreaking what they have done to the Meadowlands which is a critical area for bird migration. The HMDC which is supposed to oversee development is comprised mainly of developers, I can't imagine they ever say no to a project. The existing road system cannot support additional traffic as they are already jammed as they are the main artery to the Lincoln Tunnel.

Corruption in Hudson County is legendary -- good luck monitoring this project. It's a book/movie/mini series in the making.

Great pun, Brian: "Xanadu, bogging down in the Meadowlands." One of your all time best.
