I haven't done one of these posts in a while, so here are some Connecticut links I've been saving up.
-This story has been everywhere, but Johnsonville was auctioned off this week. Via the Courant.
-I wrote about how Connecticut's Jews became total foodies while I was away. In the Forward.
-I was going to write about this for Hartford City Center HamletHub while Ken Burns's The Roosevelts: An Intimate History was airing on PBS. But I didn't, so I still have the connecticuthistory.org link just hanging around on my favorites toolbar: Roosevelt Rides in an Electric Car (in Hartford.)
-The New England Historical Society has amazing pictures of a 1940 farm auction in Derby. And modern-day Derby is producing an infomercial for itself.
-The New York Times has discovered Danbury.
-The Huffington Post has a gallery of haunted houses, including one in Hartford that I'm pretty sure I've never come across. I don't believe houses (or anything, for that matter) can be haunted, but I do believe they can be spectacularly creepy.
