Sexy Devil -- where is the moral outrage?

Institutionalized Necrophilia

on
Small town U.S.A. – Lower Fairfield County The lights have been dimmed, candles lit. It is the evening of October 31st in the otherwise typical small town — Westport Connecticut. Little Johnny Smithers, 7 years old, blindfolded and trembling with fear, is instructed by members of his natural family to put his hand into a […] [Read More]

Baron’s — way to go westport

on
Westport – Conn. Well, it’s Saturday morning. My heart is heavy. I’ve been thinking about the Baron’s Land; specifically the upcoming decision by P&Z to allow (or not) for the the change of the proposed use from %60 affordable units to %20 affordable units. It would seem that this is more than just a change in a […] [Read More]

The Westport Experience

on
Sometimes I look around the world, outside the Westport sphere, and I am absolutely dumbfounded by how lucky I am. The world is seemingly erupting into violence at every turn. This town has always felt like a safe cocoon; there is Westport and then there is everywhere else. I often complain about Westport going through […] [Read More]

Getting Parking Samples

on
When going about trying to understand the parking dynamics downtown ‘broad-view’ metrics don’t reveal the reality on the scene! A planner would need to drill down much, much more, as I have done. I went in to every shop, about 3 years ago, just before I started this blog. I asked if there were any […] [Read More]

World Not Coming to End, no cause for alarm

on
One of my favorite things to do is to go out in the rain; walking or riding, or just enjoying the relief from muggy times with water falling all around. What could be more natural. Nowadays, the post-modern era, I find it useful however, when a downpour begins, to put a small bucket of water […] [Read More]

Identity crISIS

on
I’m having one, what else is new.   Westport is having one too. At least as far as I can tell, the signs are there.   Now for the disclaimer: I love Westport and everything about it. And it would ill me to think that someone thought I was being negative, no way, not me, […] [Read More]

Orgasm of the Gods

on
The concussive report of a rocket can trigger thoughts that otherwise would remain in the subconscious throughout the rest of the year.   The fourth of July weekend always puts things into perspective. Thinking back to holidays past our lives are rendered in a linear way, year by year, leading back to the American Revolution. […] [Read More]

The Bulletin Board — every little town has one except W

on
Now — there is no longer a bulletin board downtown. We need a new one and it should go in a little kiosk at Jesup Green. A town center without a bulletin board is like MTV without the music. The students over at Toquet Hall and Remy Chevalier brought this to my attention during the […] [Read More]

Sights for Sore Eyes

on
How should I put it? – today was one of those days! Everybody I run into is a little bit emotional about the changing vibe around town lately. The first order of business was to buy some pants. What I was looking for was a bike pant; that could be worn in the rain and […] [Read More]
