Connecticut is Useless

According to the Associated Press...

"Dozens of people lined up at City Hall on Tuesday for municipal identification cards, the first city-issued ID cards specifically designed to bring illegal immigrants out of the shadows and give them access to community services."

Whaaaaaaaaat?? I'm confused - why is the town of New Haven promoting illegal acts? Hence, the term "illegal immigrants". What about the people that have been waiting to be granted access to America legally?

Congratulations, New Haven!! As an estimated 10,000 - 12,000 of New Haven's 125,000 residents are believed to be in the country illegally already, such a move is assured to make New Haven the arm pit of the northeast. That sound? The residents of Springfield, MA rejoice!

New Haven...here's a better idea -- DEPORT THEM! Who cares if there are less maids to go around?? If such stupidity begins to spread across the country, I'm going to fly off the deep end. This is the one topic which I would be forced to protest.

Let me think about this...because of illegal immigrants:
  • America loses money on taxes.
  • America's schools waste funds on said immigrants.
  • Middle and lower class Americans lose jobs to said immigrants.
  • Hospitals lose money.
  • Nation is forever in bilingual debate.
  • Threat of terrorism increases.
  • Increased crime.
  • Limitless fraud potential.

Not to get political again, but ONLY immigrants and ride-or-die Republicans stand to gain from such lunacy!

**Lastly - on a serious note, I was just informed by an anonymous source that Tedy Bruschi died just a short time ago???? Can anyone confirm and/or refute this? Obviously, we all hope that this is exactly that...an inaccurate rumor.

***UPDATE: As of 5:25 this evening, I have no further details. For that reason alone, I'm assuming the aforementioned rumor is just that...a false rumor. We can all breathe a little easier. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

I have to rank Hartford, CT one of the worst cities in the entire universe. Connecticut would have zero use if it weren't for western CT (Stamford, Greenwich, etc.) and that's only because people use it as a place to reside while they work in New York.

I have also been told by a fairly reliable source that Tedy Bruschi died at Mass General Hospital today. A colleague of mine was informed by an employee at the hospital.

This is not being offered as a confirmation. I'm simply claiming to have been given the same information from another source.

And like the author of this blog, I apologize if this information turns out to be false.

Bruschi Lives!A bizarre rumor that that Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi died on Monday is swirling through New England.

I'm in Atlanta and I've gotten four phone calls and two e-mails asking whether it was true.

Happily, it is not.

How did it get this far? Well, the answer won't really drape the journalism industry in glory.

Apparently, an anonymous e-mail to the Fox affiliate in Boston came in Monday afternoon saying that Bruschi had gone to Jesus.

The smart move would have been to try and confirm with the Patriots. Instead, the reporter who took the e-mail tried to confirm with three other media members which put them all on red alert and caused them to start calling every contact they could to find out if tragedy had struck Bruschi and the Patriots again.

The rumor mill has continued churning through the day on Tuesday.

Bruschi, who suffered a stroke after the 2004 season, has been tremendous with the media throughout his career but abhors having his privacy invaded by the media. This episode, which he is aware of, is not going to be a hit with him.
