Sing The Praises Of City’s Music Scene

March 4th, 2013 · 5 Comments · Analysis and Comment, Best of Bridgeport

Spread the word, the Downtown Bridgeport music scene is heating up. The Bijou Theater, Downtown Cabaret, Two Boots, Klein Memorial, Webster Bank Arena and so much more. Concerts, clubs, community theater. Saturday night a jammed Bijou grooved to the genial showmanship of Livingston Taylor, singer songwriter extraordinaire, who’s also a professor at Berklee College of […]

Mayer Master Baiter, Plus: Rick, Dick, And SuBy On Hot Seat

January 23rd, 2010 · 25 Comments · Education, Library, News and Events, State Politics

Lots of stuff I couldn’t fit in on Friday … like we should run John Mayer for public office. I’m just trying to figure out what office. Mayer for Mayor sorta has a nice ring, but after reading John’s new take in Rolling Stone, one thing’s clear … he’s a master baiter.

Who Are These People!

July 16th, 2009 · 41 Comments · City Politics, Education, News and Events

Lots of twists and turns in recent days as Democratic candidates position for seats on the Board of Education. Two slots are available on the Democratic side this cycle, and there could be a few more twists before the Democratic Town Committee meets Wednesday night to endorse candidates for BOE. Democratic Town Chair Mario Testa […]

A Little Spring Cleaning

March 20th, 2009 · 25 Comments · News and Events

Throw open the windows, pull out your drawers, air out that closet. Spring is here so I’m wondering (this can be dangerous) how would you clean house? Take a powerwash to Chris Dodd and call it even? Make public financing of local elections voluntary? Or maybe mandatory? Rip up all downtown streets and finally begin […]

Jewels, Jangling And Justice

February 9th, 2009 · 28 Comments · Law Enforcement, Media, News and Events

I’ve decided when I’m on my deathbed (other than my wife, of course) I want Jewel to sing me a lullaby. She could make nicotine mellow. I saw the singer/songwriter’s intimate performance at the Klein Sunday night. Great stuff, jammed hall. She shared stories about playing biker bars in her native Alaska, living out of […]

Can You Spare Some Coal?

January 15th, 2009 · 7 Comments · Analysis and Comment, Media, News and Events

Baby, it’s frozen tundra out there. How frozen is it? State Rep. Chris Caruso bonfired his failed legal briefs to keep Mayor Bill Finch warm. Democratic Town Chairman Mario Testa set his restaurant on fire to give predecessor John Stafstrom an arson case. City Councilman Bob Troll Walsh brewed a cup of hot chocolate (with a […]

John Mayer’s Labor Day Puke Session, Plus: Ice Lady

August 31st, 2008 · 34 Comments · Education, Media, National Politics, News and Events

Hey, what’s up for the next couple of days? Can you believe September’s here? I’m still fighting woodpeckers, bats, wasps and rodents, although my cat Stinky’s pretty good at mauling mice. Speaking of shrews (okay, I know that’s a bit much) but John McCain’s selection of the ice lady from Alaska reminds me of the golfer […]

The Skinny At Captain’s Cove: The Three Amigos Hold Court

May 16th, 2008 · 32 Comments · Media, News and Events

I’m a little late getting started today. You know how parties can take on a life of their own. We had quite the eclectic crew show up at Captain’s Cove Seaport, a collection of great and near-great pols, elected officials, neighborhoods activists, and urban warriors. Cougar Rodgerson pawed in with some of his cubs from […]
