  1. I would think that a high school English teacher would be able to write/proofread better than this. He "currently teachers English Literature"; he is a building representative for the "Meriden Board of teacher" four years in a row; and he is "Chairperson the Cable Advisory Board". Also, if he is scheduled to complete his 6th year in Spring 2013 either his schedule or bio is off. Small errors, but really shouldn't an English teacher to do better than that on something that he presumably prepared carefully?


  2. Perhaps the bio was lifted from the GOP page like all the others. How do you know Mr. Television wrote it? You must be an INSIDER to know who is writing what about whom. It is obvious you are attacking him and other GOP members for silly reasons. It's interesting how you don't mention the first sentence and the link at the bottom.. -Having Fun in Middletown!- P.S.

    Did you check your response for errors?

  3. All bios & letters to the editor submissions are submitted to us. We don't take them from other sources; if someone is submitting to us via copying and pasting in an email to us then we do not edit formatting. We try and maintain original formatting as much as possible or mimic it as closely as possible within our templates.

  4. God bless him for standing up for those women awhile back.. The kid had guts and told the truth in court while Milardo and the Mayor said nothing or plead the 5th.

  5. LISA. Get a life.

  6. Allthe blogs are screwed up with the spelling, i love how they pick on a public teacher who has given his life to teaching children who are impoverished.. I like the show and I like Wilson too, at least his commentary is fresh and bold unlike the other shows who lie to the viewers!

    Don't worry Dems, you will win , the people bithch and moan but constantly pull that D lever.. They desreve the DEM party and they deserve Dan! Wake up!
