This is the first day of a predicted heat wave...Get those A/C's running and hope for no brown-outs!
Republican US Senate Candidate Alan Schlesinger says he is staying in the race despite his gambling "issues" and Governor Jodi Rell's request, on more than one occasion, that he drop out. I am waiting to see how this pans out but I think for the good of the Republican party, at this point he should probably step aside.
According to an AP poll cited in today's Hartford Courant the majority of Americans want to see Democrats take overall control of Congress. It may be the majority's opinion but this American doesn't want to see that happen.
Hartford lawyer and magistrate for the state judicial branch James Aspell was arrested in Amherst MA yesterday on charges of engaging in sexual conduct for a fee. You can read about it here .
On the lighter side of the news, 2 escaped EMU, yes I said Emu, have been spotted in Simsbury and Middletown. The birds, which cannot fly and are originally from Australia, apparently escaped the farm they live on in Simsbury.
So besides the Senate, the heat and the Emu, what else is going on today?
