If only we had a tabloid in town…

Since I’m about as well-connected as leaky faucet, I’m sure thousands of other West Hartford residents have heard the same rumor that reached my ears the other day about … how to put this delicately… extra-curricular affairs between certain prominent figures. I think that’s vague enough while being reasonably clear to those who have heard the talk.

Now I don’t really care who’s doing what to whom, as long as children are neither involved nor likely to have their lives turned upside down by childish adults. But I do worry as a taxpayer if public officials are putting us at risk of a big old lawsuit by acting in ways that some could construe as improper with people who work for them.

And, no, I won’t be more specific because I have no personal knowledge of any of this. It’s just hearsay and that’s not enough evidence on which to say more.

  1. FALCON

    “reasonably clear to those who have heard the talk” what kind of nonsense is that. If you have it spell it out! A talboid wouldn’t do this either

  2. FALCON — If I had personal knowledge, I would spell it out. What I heard concerns me. But if someone challenged me to prove the rumor was true, I could only say that I have no idea. So I won’t write any details. It risks being both libelous and unfair to specify what I cannot prove. I think, though, that it is worth cautioning our elected leaders to nose around and take steps to protect the public in case there’s something to all of this talk.
