Patty Rowland's Christmas Poem (CT's first lady)
Anyone following events here in Connecticut will really enjoy this Christmas poem presented by our first lady at the Middlesex Chamber of Commerce meeting yesterday.

<snip>
When out on my yard there arose such a hubbub, I thought maybe (Hartford Courant reporter) Jon Lender had jumped in the hot tub.

Now surely that man needs to go soak his head, but there on the lawn stood Santa instead.

"Come in, dear Santa, and rest for a while. I've got cookies and milk," I said with a smile.

"I am late," said Santa. "My last stop took hours, all that coal I delivered down The Courant's tall towers.

"They used to be good girls and boys," Santa said. "But the poison pen's power has gone to their head.

"And I have the same problem at the media stations, they've just simply forgotten good human relations.

"Their thirst and hunger for the day's biggest story has earned them black coal for their ill-gotten glory."

"Oh Santa," I said, "that is sad, I agree. They've acted like Grinches who have stolen our tree.

By whining unions she is referring to the state unions who were trying to save, among other jobs, the jobs of the blind who work for the state.

1. I wonder
if she wrote a "sweet" little poem like that when Clinton was being harassed and tortured for 8 frigging years? I wonder if she, being republican, was concerned about "Their thirst and hunger for the days biggest story."

I have to laugh when I hear ANY repiblican whining about not being treated fairly...in light of what they did to Clinton when he was in office. That will never wash with me. No sympathy here. Ho Ho Ho!

Amazing that they criticize the Courant, which is a subsidiary of the Right Wing Tribune...
