Colin McEnroe: I do see signs of a real Hartford renaissance. And if that happens, it will be a miracle, considering how many dumb things happen every day in city government.
I root for Hartford. And I hesitate to make fun of Hartford, because I know that there are people who really do hate the city and many of them will be commenting on the online version of this column. And I respect the opinions of those people even though, as far as I can tell, 80 percent of them are racist pukes.

The Mets have been amazin' so far.
The Mets beat the Braves, finishing off another series sweep, wrapping up a perfect 10-game homestand and pushing their winning streak to 11, which ties a franchise record. Bartolo Colon , 41, is 4-0. Having proved that a ridiculous amount of injuries and a key suspension don't matter if you have starting pitching, the Mets head over to the Bronx for the Subway Series as a sharp, relevant, exciting team. … The Yankees , having won six of se...

America's oldest continuously published newspaper.
Introduction

The Hartford Courant was founded on October 29, 1764, as a weekly newspaper (The Connecticut Courant) and has never missed a publication since its inception. It's the newspaper in which George Washington placed an ad to lease part of his Mount Vernon land. Thomas Jefferson sued this newspaper for libel - and lost. And Mark Twain tried to buy stock in this paper but his offer was turned down.

The paper won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Journalism for a series of stories on the flaws that plagued the Hubble telescope, and the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Reporting for the in-depth coverage of the tragic events of the shooting at Connecticut Lottery headquarters.

In 2013, The Hartford Courant was one of three Pulitzer Prize finalists in the Breaking News category for "complete and sensitive coverage" of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., and for "using digital tools, as well as traditional reporting, to tell the story quickly while portraying the stunned community's grief."
