It's really sad that NBC treats the Olympics as entertainment and not breaking news. It's near impossible to stay away from breaking news these days, and NBC has been playing up the sob stories, flooding us with commercials and even creatively editing their delayed prime time coverage to create a false narrative (example: http://deadspin.com/5930817/the-us-already-had-gold-locked-up-after-this-floor-disaster-from-russias-world-champion-so-nbc-didnt-show-it-to-you). I hear they are planning the same for 2016 but I hope to god they change their minds, it really takes the fun out of watching these events. View Comment
Even if the ump made the worst call ever, these coaches need to show restraint and be an example of how to to to be a good sport and a civil human being. Cliche, but winning isn't everything. I was on a little league team that lost every game one season and it was a blast. We learned how to be good sports from excellent coaches.
These umps get paid beans and they make mistakes just like everyone else. I'm glad my kid isn't on that team because I wouldn't want that coach "sticking up" for my kid. Teach the kids that sometimes life isn't fair and you gotta pick yourself up and dust yourself off. View Comment
5 years working in SoNo and I still have never seen a Norwalk cop walking the beat or even moving more than 10' from his car. More often you only see them when they are listening to their ipods or talking on a cell phone while ignoring the traffic they are supposed to be directing while making overtime. View Comment
The sidewalk is NOT wide enough and this is a legitimate concern for economic development as well as pedestrian safety. you can barely walk two wide, and if someone is pushing a stroller (we want people coming from the aquarium to come to Washington St, right??) forget about it. I'm all for saving the facade but connectivity HAS to be addressed. Water St is a critical link between Washington St and the garage/aquarium/oyster shell park.
There will always be a pinch point under the tracks but a "road diet" should be explored if busses can still be accommodated. View Comment
I'm not an activist, I'm just a guy who lives in Norwalk and wants to ride his bike to Calf Pasture with his kids. I do it now on my own but it's not safe for the kids, people drive too fast. Which is why more people don't do it. Which explains the "relatively few" bikers. So I would say, yes I do "have a big issue getting by". This article is short on common sense. View Comment
