A busy weekend to say the least...

The General Assembly adopted an energy bill, that doesn't really do a lot for the average consumer. It's been sent to the governor for her signature, and it appears she will sign it.

The more controversial proposal that would allow illegal immigrants to attend state colleges and universities at the in-state tuition cost passed the legislature, and it, too, is headed to the governor for her signature. Not sure how she'll deal with that one.

The governor also sent out the first olive branch in the stalemated budget negotiations, saying that she would consider "some" of the proposals being offered Democrats. Now the negotiations get started again with some real effort in trying to hammer out an agreement within the next 48 hours.

I thought Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd did a very good job of not letting his frustrations show during the nationally televised presidential debate from New Hampshire last night. No one was really a "winner," but I didn't think Dodd lost anything either.

And a new feature - each Monday morning I'll be making a guest appearance on the Lee Elci radio talk show (102.3 FM Radio station WXLM). This morning was the first. It's a short and quick, and done by phone. I'll be a regular around 7:50 a.m. every Monday.

I hope whatever tax package they come out with includes some sort of scheme to cap propety taxes to some level. After revaluation in 2003, my property taxes increased 35% which is ridiculous.

Clinton won the debate.

She made her opponents look like little girly men on terrorism.

Clinton has earned the nomination of her party.
