Stop 'unprincipled thugs' from stealing this 'game,' the 2020 election

If your child participated in the character-building competition of youth sports and came up against a team driven by parents who openly embraced winning as their only value, coached by a person who slavishly served their goal by violating...

Trump's pro-life court choices are delivering us from evil

“Wrath and anger are hateful things, yet the sinner hugs them tight” (Sirach 27:30). Godless Democrats certainly hug them tight! Since President Trump vanquished Hillary Clinton, they have pulled out all the hateful stops to...

Time to create a National Fire Force

I would like to see the creation of a National Fire Force as a new branch of our military. It makes more sense than a Space Force. Greater resources and well-trained firefighters could deploy, in force, to major fires like those that plague the...

Day presents mixed message on importance of mask wearing

I was delighted to see the powerful photo of veterans marching for suicide prevention in the Sunday, Sept. 20...

If Trump fills court's vacancy, Biden may benefit

A new conservative judge before elections could be a good thing. For those who do not like President Trump but want a conservative court will get what they want and be free to vote for Joe Biden. If the Democrats fight the nomination it will be a...

RBG set stage for better tomorrows

Friday, we lost a great human being, a magnificent soul. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg offered to us a brilliant intellect, impeccable integrity and held herself personally accountable for human progress in what matters in life: equality, equity,...

Sen. Somers should give hero award to her opponent

The Day has chosen to publicize state Sen. Heather Somers’ “Covid...

After Chokas finding of no coverup, Day apology warranted

For over a year now, The Day has published essentially the same article over and over again rehashing and retelling the allegations in the Stonington High School/Timothy Chokas case. The attorney retained by the school board to investigate the...

So-called Chokas investigation only aided the coverup

After reading the article dealing with the report by Attorney Chinni regarding the inappropriate behavior of Timothy Chokas, I cannot...

Drugs, not cops, are the real problem

First off, I abhor unwarranted police violence. That said, I really get frustrated when the liberal news portrays looting and rioting as protesting and unrest. It is violent activity at best! I disagree with many mandates of Black Lives...

Don't look to retired teachers for savings

New London’s Public School teachers returned to their classrooms earlier this month to welcome back their students after the hardest six months of their careers. Imagine my surprise − and theirs, no doubt − when I saw...

America’s time to say, 'Never again!'

We are being asked to accept a leader who admits to lying and downplaying a clear threat to American lives in order to benefit business and his own political future. This seems unimaginable, but after his admitted sexual grabbing of women was...

Senate can grasp goal of court that secures conservative principles

The ability to return the court to its constitutional boundaries would be a win for the ages.

Columnist Leonard Pitts Jr

Black Lives Matter. Don't try to change the subject.

So stop asking me about Chicago. I require no instruction from you on how and when to mourn. More to the point, stop using tragedies to duck the...

Digital world helps 'people peaceably to assemble'

The boat parade was a reminder that even in blue-state Connecticut, which I suspect Biden will carry easily, Trump has a large group of loyal...
