West Hartford, 1956

From  an Aug. 19th Bloomberg News piece by Al Hunt, about U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd:

Dodd, the son of a senator and himself a lifelong politician, exudes an easy charm and an engaging humor. He’s a natural campaigner who loves to meet and talk to voters.

After a recent event in Decorah, Iowa, he wandered around a Nordic Day celebration, reminiscing that Midwestern culture was strikingly similar to his childhood experiences in Connecticut decades earlier: “It was West Hartford, 1956.”

So even though Dodd is rarely seen in these parts anymore, he does remember us.

Here, by the way, is Decorah, Iowa:
