"In other words, for a nebulous, not particularly large dollar amount in savings, it appears legislative leaders have decided to abdicate analyzing the financial consequences of their legislation, which flies in the face of advice from good government groups across the country."
News that most of the Legislature’s Program Review and Investigations Committee staff would be assigned to other legislative support offices is being billed as a cost-saving measure. Five analysts are being moved to the Auditors of Public Accounts and the four others and an administrative assistant are being transferred elsewhere.

Interestingly, when I tried to post this to Facebook, it was CENSORED. WHY?
Recently, the amazing cantor at our synagogue, Magda Fishman (if you get a chance to hear her sing, run don't walk!)encouraged me to join our synagogue choir after a lifetime of thinking I couldn't sing. I've now taken as my ...

Latest on the First Five report - now with added whistleblower info on Small Business Express!
Curious taxpayers finally got a look at the state Department of Economic and Community Development’s long-awaited analysis of the First Five Plus economic incentive program on Tuesday. The document raises as many questions as it purports to answer.

In light of Eric Trump's ridiculous assertion yesterday, this strong woman would like to issue a challenge to all the men she knows - and even those she doesn't.

Dear sexist morons in companies. It's 2016. Women with brains, investment accounts and buying power can take their business and their "juicy melons" elsewhere. Later!

My take on #debate2016

All my creative friends know what I'm talking about....
Yesterday I attended a literary luncheon for the witty, wonderful Emma Donaghue, whose new book The Wonder I can't wait to read. As Emma spoke I scribbled notes in my bullet journal to share with fellow writers and students. ...

Today in #Facebook censorship. Seemingly innocuous blog post by a person who makes a living in creative field asking a sincere question in the hope of starting a meaningful dialogue is blocked by security systems. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?

"There’s another very troubling aspect of how our economic incentives are being distributed. We already know that Connecticut’s racial wealth gap is one of the highest in the nation. We also know, from the recently released report by the U.S. Census Bureau, what percentages of Connecticut businesses of different age spans are owned by women and minorities, but our analysis shows both of these groups have been receiving a disproportionately lower percentage of incentives, both in terms of dollars and number of businesses served."

I find it interesting that Governor Malloy is very keen - adamant, one might say - to use data for teacher evaluations (when the American Statistical Association has issued a warning about using VAM for this purposes), but when it comes to his vaunted First Five program? Not so much.

My latest for #CTNewsJunkie
Political analyst Stuart Rothenberg tweeted recently that he is old enough to remember the Republican Party. He has 15 years on me, but I'm old enough to remember, too.
