If we can’t have real health care reform,

they can’t have our money
Other Connecticut Companies to Boycott:

Applera | Carrier | Clairol; Your natural hair color is beautiful | Colt’s Manufacturing Company | Electric Boat; Get your nuclear submarines elsewhere, America | ESPN | Ethan Allen | Foxwoods Resort & Casino; Head on down to A.C. | Gartner | General Electric | Gerber Scientific | Hamilton Sundstrand | Nestle | Northeast Utilities; Turn out the lights | Otis Elevator; Use the stairs | Phoenix Companies | Pitney Bowes | Pratt & Whitney; Make love, not war | Priceline.com | Sikorsky; Do you really need that second helicopter? | Southern Connecticut Gas | Stew Leonard’s; How can you think about filet mignon at a time like this? | Time Warner | United Technologies | W.R. Berkley | Webster Bank | Xerox; You don’t really need to copy that.

I love it. Boycott GE! Just say no to MSDNC! (Which will still be 49 percent owned by GE, even after the Comcast deal.) If Olbermann and Maddow take salaries from GE, they’re taking Lieberman blood money!

Another good one is the Otis elevator company: Have fun walking up all those stairs, hippies.

But no way am I boycotting Stew Leonard’s. Grocery shopping with an ice-cream cone and fresh coffee is impossible to give up.

The New York Times Sells Envy

A product always sure to sell, even on Thanksgiving, and especially amid a pandemic, is envy. So I can hardly blame New York Times columnist Farhad Manjoo for capitalizing on a bull market.

The Rural Way

Almost every national Election Night reveals the same old red/blue map. The country geographically is a sea of red. The coasts and small areas along the southern border and around the Great Lakes remain blue atolls. Yet when the maps are recalibrated for population rather than area, the blue areas blow up, ...
