  1. Between current events, social issues and politics, there’s less and less opportunity it seems, for an activist to opine on topics of pure joy, like watching the University of Connecticut’s, woman’s basketball team, win well-played games in the NCAA March Madness tournament. Good luck to the women Huskies this weekend against Indiana. I think we should be proud of the fact that the NCAA and the University of Connecticut chose Bridgeport to host part of their March Madness Tournament. Maybe in the near future we could figure out a way to raise the stature of Bridgeport in several fundamental ways, to be truly worthy of such an honor.

  2. A daytime post by Little Stevie A during work time hours, oh nevermind he’s only giving the name of places to eat in Bridgeport. I see that you are on the DTC now you are really important in your own mind.

      1. Little Stevie A, I see that you made your comment after work hours because you know Mario will do to your scare ass. I tell you what with your punk ass Little Stevie A, I dare you to say what you said to my face.

        1. Sure, Anytime ! You miserable , negative piece of human waste. You actually believe people on this blog listen to you. I do Thank you for making me feel like a super star. Some of us are movers and shakers. People like you are like a lead balloon. You suck the oxygen out of a room. You are bad PR for all of your candidates. Great job helping your candidates for the DTC.

          1. Hey, Little Stevie A, let’s have this conversation on Monday at 10 a.m., oh my bad your punk ass can’t post anything because you are scare of Mario. Come on back Little Stevie and be the real superstar of OIB in your mind so that you can be somebody instead of being all up in Mario ass.

          2. I did say sure anytime- to your face idiot! not on this blog- My previous post was my last post addressing you.
