Living In The Real World

It’s been said that Westport exists in a bubble.

But consider these recent stories:

  • A Westport native killed his brother in New Haven, then shot himself in his parents’ home here.
  • One driver pulled a gun on another.
  • A Westporter was charged with conspiracy to commit mortgage fraud.
  • Another was arrested after a confrontation with a repo man.

We sure don’t live in a bubble. Westport is very much a part of the real world — for better and, unfortunately some times, worse.
