I'm a loyal reader of the Courant, the West Hartford News, West Hartford Life and any other strange publication focused on our town that lands on my doorstep. I read the town's emails. I peruse the politicians' mailings. I sometimes even talk to a few of the people who run our town.
But I feel like I never know what's going on.
So I hope that starting a blog that takes an occasional look at events here may force me to learn more and perhaps it will also spur a bit of debate. That often does wonders for clarifying what's really at stake.
Though I'm a registered Democrat, I don't much care about party labels. I've voted for my share of Republicans over the years, mostly without regret. So I hope this won't seem too partisan.
Let's see where it goes.
