The legal justification for President Biden’s student loan forgiveness measure is flimsy at best and non-existent at worst.
It should be called the ‘No Inflation Impact Act’
If Gov. Ned Lamont spent any time looking at the Inflation Reduction Act, he would know that it does nothing to combat inflation.
Roe: It’s almost all about politics
In Connecticut, abortion is a lay-up. Objective, thoughtful debate on the merits of this important issue is soundly and righteously rejected by the political majority with little protest from the political minority.
The predictable corruption of the Connecticut budget process
It happens this way in Connecticut every time: Party leaders deliberately drop a huge bill, hundreds upon hundreds of pages long, on the desks of legislative members without anywhere enough time to understand what they are voting on.
The solution to teaching bias in Connecticut schools
Just like the separation of church and state contained in the Constitution’s First Amendment, subjects concerning politics or political views should be kept out of public schools.
Time to disband the politically created Contracting Standards Board
The SCSB was born like many laws and entities: as a political necessity in 2007 to “do something” after a scandal, horrendous crime, or disaste
Connecticut’s hypocrisy at the top
Gov. Ned Lamont (like every politician) lives on patronage!
Another view on the Rittenhouse verdict hysteria
I was disappointed to see an item in The Mirror on November 22, entitled “The bias that found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty sends other young people to jail,” written by The Mirror’s new Community Editorial Board director/columnist, that denounced the Rittenhouse jury verdict as biased.

Advancing Critical Race Theory: Not letting a good crisis go to waste
Anyone who is semi-conscious knows that Critical Race Theory is a hot topic
What is a fair tax system?
There are more and more calls for “tax fairness” — which usually means taking someone else’s money.
Journalistic bias against anti-maskers/vaxxers
Coverage of a protest against Gov. Lamont by anti-maskers that essentially consisted of a one-sided disparaging of them.
On the smearing of Lamont via Cuomo
Wow. What else is there to say about an op-ed entitled “What their actions say about the values of our leaders, including Lamont’s,” of August 30, written by Brendan Cunningham about Gov. Ned Lamont that implies he knew about former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s wrongdoings – without supplying any facts whatsoever.
Connecticut should have a one-house legislature — and fewer lawmakers
In 2020, there were 35 out of 187 (19%) statehouse seats that were basically uncontested, which meant the election/balloting in these cases was a foregone conclusion. This is the norm, election after election. By definition then, we have too many statehouse seats in Connecticut.
On characterizing Woodbridge as racist without evidence
The March 1 article “Open-housing debate in Woodbridge: Define racism” described the latest developments in the push to require affordable housing in Woodbridge. The article symbolizes a much broader contemporary philosophical battle than that involving Woodbridge and affordable housing.
Emotion substituting as evidence sunk impeachment trial
As Gandalf exclaimed to Saruman in Lord of the Rings (the movie version) when he learned of Saruman’s evil doings: when did you “abandon reason for madness?” So, too, did the Democrats when they launched the second impeachment trial (and arguably the first as well). Madness may be too strong a term, but emotion (primarily vindictiveness, payback and vengeance) overwhelmed reason when the hastily assembled articles of impeachment were prepared and delivered six days after the Jan. 6 insurrection.
