Right as if your Fairfield County property, assuming you are a taxpayer, would be worth anywhere near as much as it is if this wasn't a bedroom commuting area for NYC and Stamford of a more recent vintage. Without being NYC commutable Fairfield Co. would just be The Valley Southwest. View Comment
I have almost been struck walking on the SIDEWALK past Molto. Cars blow past the stop sign next to Jos. A. Bank. They also come screaming off of the Post Rd turning into the Molto driveway. This is a terrible town for pedestrians. One time after almost being killed on the Molto sidewalk in front of the driveway the driver screamed at me that I should look where I was going! How about I am the PEDESTRIAN on the SIDEWALK and you are the driver speeding and not watching where you are going. I have a near death experience somewhere on the Post Rd sidewalk (between RR station and So. Benson) at least once every 2 weeks. View Comment
So this kid who probably crashed a friend's Saturday night party and then hung around all day watching football and got a ride back to campus on Monday morning is a right wing fanatic?

No cost to Conn. taxpayers? That is very hard to believe. "...a private-public partnership," sounds like the state gave them the rights to build and in exchange will offer up a slew of tax breaks. If that's the case, the taxpayer would get hit via reduced tax payments. There's no such thing as a free lunch or a free I-95 rest stop. View Comment
Just as with all of the end of the world hype before the sequester....Ho-Hum.
The list of examples from Rep. Himes is laughably weak. Endlessly raising the debt ceiling without changing spending is like giving a college kid a credit card and every time he/she maxes it out you have a heart-to-heart about cutting spending and this is the last time I raise the limit on the card. Semester after semester after semester.
And, of course, it NOT just about the debt LIMIT......nobody ever talks about PAYING the DEBT. View Comment
Will Mr. T be advising against using non-professionals to do the foundation and footings for a building situated on the beach? I wonder if he'll also advise against doing a major flood zone renovation without lifting the building to meet FEMA . . . and common sense . . .guidelines. In fact maybe he can tell us how to get around such guidelines as the Democratic leadership of Farfield did. View Comment
I've never agreed with this guy before. It's a civil war...in fact it's a regional religious proxy war among different sects of Islam. There are no Good Guys. Let them have their own 100 Years War. View Comment
if you go back 80' won't that eliminate most of the parking? In fact would zoning regulations allow that size building with such greatly reduced parking? On the other hand, if the idea is to push the pavilion up against Fairfield Beach Rd. and put the displaced parking in front of re-situated pavilion . . . that is an ugly fix. Who wants to peer off the deck at a sea of car tops? View Comment
