Can we include Finch and Miron in those sales? PLEASE?
Just to show we're good sports, we'll throw in Baldwin and Flatto.
They would be a good addition to the National Parks Service.

They could start as Rangers feeding wild bears.

It's funny to me that ever since the mayor elect has taken office he's decided to sell or at least charter offers for just about everything in bridgeport. Let's just keep the whore and crack houses in bridgeport and sell everything else that the city was built on . Heres a thought why not sell some of the old delapitated buildings in bridgeport and use that money to rebuild the finer things that the public would care about in the city.

Its like Bill FInch is having a going out of business sale. In only two months he has managed to be more of an embarrassment to this city than Mary Moran was after two mercifully short years!
Maybe Bill will change the city motto to "stupid is as stupid does"...it certainly fits him to a T

I would think that having Miron and Finch in the same room would constitute a violation of the R.I.C.O. Act. I'm not at all surprised that these 2 scumbags could become partners in crime.

Jeezus Kro I hope you aren't eating bottom feeders from that area. The bottom of the harbor is surely full of lead, heavy metals and worse.
