Bill Curry whom i know well and supported is a good writer...my only problem with his column every sunday is that i dont believe he is " dis-engaged" enough to write objectively.Given the fact that he was sniffing around as recently as a few months ago in the 5th CD and that relatives and best friends formed a consulting business representing Lieberman,Farrell and Malloy and others..and also given the fact that he is very emotionally invested in them, id bet his column will be slanted.If he slants for his good friends malloy and Lieberman you can be sure his column wont last long..If he can find it within himself to write half-way objectively his column will make a vald contribution to political discourse.
