The words “happy” and “news” don’t often go skipping hand-in-hand down Primrose Lane, but what a relatively happy news day Wednesday was.
Connecticut got a new governor, and for a day, the Capitol building was a den of hope, sunny sound bites pinging off the walls of the great building.
And America got an instant and unlikely hero. A new Ted Williams to root for. (See previous post.) Homeless and disheveled one day, a cleaned-up internet sensation the next, thanks to his own dulcet tones and the eye of a sharp photojournalist in Columbus, Ohio.
A day of collective hope and inspiration. Wish we had more of them. As 85-year-old State Sen. Edith Prague told the Hartford Courant, “I’ll worry about tomorrow tomorrow.”
Edith, it’s tomorrow.
