Staying Current

The Hartford Courant has a reputation for being biased against Waterbury. This is something that can be seen going back decades. I don't know what started this "tradition" at the Courant, but maybe one of the reasons it continues is that they haven't bothered to stay up-to-date on what's happening here. Take, for example, their official description of Waterbury on their website: "Principal industries are manufacture of brass and copper products, clocks, and watches."

I'd say that puts their knowledge of Waterbury at least thirty years behind the times.

I wrote a post that used some of your images here. I lived my whole life in Waterbury until I was 22, and look forward to coming back someday.

Cheers!

Well, that was the politically correct description. The truth hurts too much... "Waterbury specializes in electing pedophiles, alcoholics, crooks, and developing future disgraced governors."

Sadly, there seem to be a lot of people who can see only the negative in the world, even though there's a lot more good than bad.
