Keep our Harbor Master!

 

Harbor Master removes Cos Cob harbor obstruction

Harbor Master removes Cos Cob harbor obstruction

Ian MacMillan wants to be reappointed Harbor Master and is appealing for our support. He absolutely deserves it. MacMillan was forced down our First Selectman’s throat by Governor Malloy, thus thwarting Tesei’s own patronage scheme to award the post to the husband of a supporter. In the two years since, MacMillion has driven Peter crazy, demanding that our town mooring fields be rationalized, ending the preferred treatment of the Boating Friends of Peter and so forth. Some of MacMillan’s actions and ideas may be a bit wrong-headed, but the idea that someone paid $600 a year can unsettle the status quo so thoroughly is astonishing, and welcome.

Besides, the comic relief of Tesei’s angry reaction to MacMillan, often boarding on the insane, is priceless. Keep it up, Ian.

After being regularly shoved and tripped, and nearly burned with a cigarette lighter, a tormented special-needs student in Pennsylvania decided to take matters into his own hands. He secretly recorded the abuse on his school-issued iPad, and his mother eventually submitted the evidence to the school’s principal. But instead of punishing the teenage tyrants caught on tape, administrators decided to call the police, who threatened the 15-year-old boy with felony wiretapping, but later reduced the charge to disorderly conduct. He was found guilty on March 19.
