Broadwater and Wind Power
Note to Blumenthal: if you need Eliot Spitzer's cooperation in stopping Broadwater, isn't it better not to threaten him? Do you think Spitzer is somehow going to be scared off by the threat of a lawsuit?

Note to Hartford Courant editorial writers: the cliche-metaphor "go to the mat" is from the sport of wrestling. If you go to the mat aren't you in troulbe and about to get pinned? How about a boxing cliche instead? Connecticut should go for the KO or, failing that, the TKO.
