Barnum/Bunkum Bible-Beating Bastards
Why can’t you be Ben Franklin White like me?
I walk down Main St. in Bridgeport sometimes (it’s a very real place, ask any of the family at Ocean Sea Grill where you can eat the fish and not just sleep with them) and tell people it was once the site of an Elephant stampede, who then look at me like I have a third eye and move over to the other side of the street. Have you no respect for Ted Geisel who worked up the road in Springfield? Was not P.T. a venerated and estimable Mayor of the largest City in Connecticut?
In fairness they elected Joe Ganim, a convicted Felon, after ‘Six in Dix’ for “one count each of racketeering, extortion, racketeering conspiracy, and bribery; two counts of bribery conspiracy; eight counts of mail fraud, and two counts of filing a false tax return”. I’ve met him, he seems nothing out of the ordinary for the Nutmeg State where we’ll sell you a lump of wood for the price and call it even.
