It's Friday (and also somehow September already, I think we need to track down and punish whoever is responsible for that) so it's time for a bunch of Connecticut links.
-New London was in the New York Times and the Boston Globe.
-While I'm linking to the New York Times, I just love the image of Connecticut that this story must suggest to outsiders. It's true, we are an exotic land of agriculture and strange crime...
-I stumbled across the blog Colonial American Digressions, which has a few posts that mention Connecticut, like this one about the Fundamental Orders and this one about early American roads (quote: "Perhaps the Boston Post
Road wasn't a very good highway.")
-A YouTube find: "The stunning black and white photography of Jack McConnell's Connecticut Farm Project set to the music and lyrics of the talented Jack Collins."
-If Discovery Communications had existed in 1939, there would have been a reality show filmed in Glastonbury.
-"This is undoubtedly one of the most astounding natural phenomenons in the bird world that
you can experience in North America...It's
more remarkable than the sandhill crane migration on the Platte River
(in Nebraska), the snow goose migration in the Arctic and the hawk
migration in the fall." And it takes place in Haddam.
-Remember this story I wrote about the excavation of a mikveh in Montville? Dr. Nicholas Bellantoni talked about that site, and other Connecticut archeological discoveries, in his appearance at the Old State House. You can watch it on CT-N.
