Some quick mid week thoughts...

Romney won Michigan....which he needed, and needed badly.

That makes next week's South Carolina primary even that much more interesting. Thompson needs a win. He and Guiliani are the only two still in the race without a win. Huckabee hasn't done well since his win in Iowa, and he needs a win. McCain needs a win...and Romney needs another win.

Someone's on their way out after South Carolina...and it will be the one finishing fourth.

Spent the money at the Capitol in Hartford attending the annual CCM press conference telling us that cities and towns aren't getting sufficient help from the state, and the poor property taxpayer is going to once again bear the brunt of this injustice. (It's pretty much the same thing they said last year, the year before, the year before that, etc.)

The Southeastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce is hosting a morning-long conference on tourism and the economy tomorrow. I'm guessing we'll learn that Connecticut's economy remains stable although suspect if a national recession hits (or has already hit) and that tourism is going strong, but needs more attention from the state if it is to maintain itself as a viable component to the state and local economy.

Did I miss anything?

It's fine that CCM reports about the poor taxpayers paying ever-higher property taxes, but do they offer an alternative to the legislators in Hartford? In my pipedream world I wish we could do away with the current tax system and start over from scratch. Clearly it's not working, and doing thing the same way produces the same results.
