You've got to be kidding! Unless this is a campaign fundraiser ruse it should rightfully be a no-cost event to disseminate his vision to his constituents. Perhaps it should be retitled the RTC Sycophant Summit. View Comment
The woman makes me sick. She is infected by the GOP virus known as sychophantitus that is flagrant throughout the Gold Coast aside from being the most gorgeous looking undocumented beauty queen in the universe. Please don't tell Barbara Starr of CNN about her arch rival. Barbara is of course the undisputed, drop dead gorgeous beauty extant. The question is: Is Barbara more handsome than beautiful? Is she a metrosexual monstrosity, of simply the definition of glamour and feminity. Cast your vote here. View Comment
This woman turns my stomach. She is little more than another member-in-good-standing with the Gold Coast GOP troops, and a remarkably capable sycophant. Are there an independent voices to be heard? View Comment
Westport has a great team, but Cal obviously has a greater one. Let's face it, New England as a whole doesn't hold a candle to California. It's a more progressive place that excels in many areas, including (not surprisingly) athletics. New England, for the most part, exists in a time warp. View Comment
Why the subterfuge to identify academic underachievers? It's not school lunch programs that are at issue. It is test scores. Why not be "politically incorrect" and identify the underachievers as predominantly minority students from public housing and low-income neighborhoods. The rest of the politically motivated pitch is banter to present a pretext designed to impress mainstream Greenwich constituency that we are in "good hands" as our educational guardians assiduously discern and reveal the paucity of the system. It's 90% buzz and bs and 10% of substantive value. Teachers can only do so much to motivate student desire to learn. Parents need to "get on the stick" and encourage their underachievers to treasure the value of education and not depreciate it by the indifferent attitudes of their "students" and/or by blaming schools for failing to educate.

Will Ouiji Board Vodka be next?
While multiple distillations undoubtedly improve quality, I am not entirely convinced that diamond (Herkimer or otherwise) filtration results in any qualitative improvement. In terms of psychic energy, crystals have long been thought to posses paranormal energy. Thus, it is this aspect of his marketing pitch that is most intriguing. Of course, the biker crowd should gravitate to the skull packaging -- adding another angle to his demographic targeting. Good luck Mr. A! View Comment
Health is more valuable than all the wealth in hedge fund heaven and/or hades, the bull corrales of Wall Street, and all the world's most grandiose art collections (Cohen's notwithstanding) combined. Keep the faith Fred ... and be well. We need more examples like Pope Francis to propagate compassion and humility, not to mention civility.
I am not a proponent of the NRA nor do I have any interest in guns. I do not think making gun ownership illegal or requiring a background check will safeguard sane society from the insane. As is the case with drug enforcement, making guns contraban will not effectively preclude access to lethal weapons by those committed to committing heinous acts. The social experiment we are all a part of will always have uncontrolled variables, including chronic and/or sudden-onset mental aberration. Minors. like Lanza, should be assiduously monitored and taught by parents to respect the sanctity of humanity and all life. If that had been done, Lanza could have owned an arsenal without endangering anyone. View Comment
As an acquaintance of Werner I admired both his knowledge and gracious manner. He was a genuine gentleman without pretense. I extend my sincerest condolences to the Pfister family and, in particular, to his brother with whom I was also acquainted. Best wishes to all. -- Harry Dill View Comment
Nice concept to generate funding, however, the tie should have clearly communicated Greenwich PD versus such a generic design. It is like celebrating Starbucks with a generic cup of coffee versus incorporating the Starbucks label in the design, or a sailboat to communicate IHYC without burgee. It makes little sense as depicted.
For the most part, such financial achievement is praiseworthy. As we know greed has a way of insidiously corrupting scruples to wit Madoff and his kindred flock of scoundrels. Thus, it is with reservation that we should "boast" about our wealth manager population. Do you suppose any of these achievers would consider forming a benevolent consortium wherein they assist others interested in pursuing entrepreneurial dreams and/or humanitarian endeavors? Such an initiative would certainly underscore their character and generosity. View Comment
Recognize that our "Habitat For Humanity" must be shared with its indigenous flora and fauna "residents." Man may be at the top of the food-chain, but he is becoming increasingly disrespectful of all life forms, including human-beings. Man is unconscionably raping every vestige of sanctity by warfare and unbridled atavistic greed and imperious aggression to expand his dominion. Soon it will extend to other planets with unforeseen consequences. Respect, moreover mutual respect is the only way to preserve and advance civility. As a civilization, we cannot afford to do otherwise. View Comment
