New Year Open Forum

The Courant argues that Justice Borden should be made Chief Justice. I agree. Borden deserves the honor, and would do a good job--even if he would be forced to retire in August.

The Courant also lists some of the problems facing the legislature, including health care, energy costs and the state police.

New laws, including a minimum wage hike, go into effect today.

More reactions to Rell's health care plan, which I still believe is a positive first step (if not a final and full solution to the problem).

What else is going on?

When do the House websites for Joe Courtney and Chris Murphy become available?

I would assume shortly after they're sworn in.

Great editorial in the Rep-Am today about media bias. Most of the examples have something to do with Katie Couric...imagine my surprise.

FATTIES BEWARE! Roraback has got his eye on your 'back' and wants to reduce it by barring TRANS FAT.

Rell's plan is to politley ask insurers to offer coverage to everyone with existing conditions at $4,000/year? (The $3,000 in premiums, plus the $1,000 deductible.)

Does anyone think that pig will fly?

And it does nothing to address the needs of the working poor, whose needs, morally, we should be addressing first.

Other than that it's likeable, like Governor Press Release...

Anonymous 6:13 PM .. I stad corrected. They're tag teaming my snacks and dinner plate.

They're worse than my mom. :(

I'm not sure if I should be offended, can't I figure out what to eat on my own? I mean, when Bloomberg did it, it was 'cute'.. now it's getting annoying.

TrueBlue - her plan isn't meant to solve anything, it's to convince moderates that nothing else needs to be done.

The simplest answer to "how will Rell achieve the impossible" is that she doesn't intend to.

Can Gov. Rell keep pace with Gov. Spitzer?

Spitzer has drawn a line, far beyond Rell's ethics standards.
