  1. Haha you lost completely across the board. Be nice and respect people you disagree with, it may come to help you in the future.

  2. To Anon: I think the entire creation of the Insider is a great one. SOme of their things are a little too much, but they have a sense of humor and at times do get quite insightful about the town. It is obvious (??) that the some of the writers are town employees who feel upset about certain issues or policies with regard to their jobs, but hey, it's America so let them write what they want. As for disrespecting those they disagree with in the blog? I don't see it that way, I see the left,which in CT is huge, will start their machines to do anything to surpress anything that comes from the right. (I.e. Suspension of early release program, high gas prices etc.) IT's all about politics people! The Insider is funny and does not take it self too seriously unlike other blogs that used their cyber prescense to get elected (No issue here) and then as an official doesn't make good on promises.

  3. To Anonymous 2:37 Am,

    I find the Insider is pretty callous myself when it goes on specific and calculated attacks of Elected Officials and City Employees. I am glad to see that the Insider doesn't take itself serious, but how about the people you slander for your laugh. You are a product of the path you choose Insider, don't whine like its not fair when you find what is at the end of the road you chose.

  4. Callous? How about the wrongdoings of the officials and corrupt politicians they are appointing out??? Callous? Drew doesn't even obey the rules conducting council meetings! No BRAVE! And much needed! They are shedding light on things Santangelo, Serra and all the corrupt ones don't want us to see! If not for them Frechette might still be bleeding us dry- oh wait he still is on the payroll!
    Insider sticks up for taxpayers and the little guys and it is about time some one did- The Press, Eye, Patch- all one sided- Its time all sides are out in the open!

  5. Dear Anon 2:37:

    Do you really believe the people in power wouldn't sue if they felt slandered? Come on, let's be real. Is it slander to say that Dan Drew went to China and lied about checking with the other members of the common council? I think the issue is that you don't want the INSIDER to write about anything negative the powers that be do.. Is it true that Lisa Santangelo bullies her way across city hall? Oh yeah! Is it true that George Souto told Drew,"If you don't tell Lisa to stay away from me and stop harassing the moderators." Is that false or slander? It happened! Since she is a liberal it's okay, but I bet if she were a member of the GOP it would be called abuse.

  6. I'm honored with your awarding me this! Thank you very much!
    Cassandra Day
