The Noah Webster statue in West Hartford is very funny when observed from the proper angle. The finger keeps getting broken off. I've only managed to see it intact a couple of times.

The biggest problem here is that this supposed statue of the dictionary guy apparently used Johnny Cash as the model

Yeah, half weren't "blunders", and then the sideshow format killed off any goodwill I would have had towards subby...

For a while now, it's been 11' 8 + 8".

Deleting PolTab was not a blunder, and it should have stayed gone.

Well, it beats Grey Goose.

Might as well delete it. All tabs are politics now, and the Discussion tab is polluted with sports all stuff too.

Nah, the PolTab is fine.

It's the gorram trolls (sorry, 'paid posters') that continue to make it a cesspool of hate and rank bigotry.

Actually amazed that the site hasn't been dinged yet by Google again for some of the BS that's posted in that tab.

Long story short: now, vehicle size doesn't matter.

Just kidding. Some trucks and RVs are still just barely overheight, and there have been several crash videos since the bridge was raised.

The back button works to return to the main list with my browser Brave.  Shields up handles the "dinky" individual articles OK.  15 somethings blocked.  Not all that exciting.
