HARTFORD -- Gov. Dannel P. Malloy on Friday announced a $1 billion initiative to repave and improve 250 miles of state roads and fix more than 40 bridges.
The upgrades include reconstructing Exits 5 and 6 on Interstate 84 and Route 37 in Danbury and resurfacing the Merritt Parkway in Stratford and Milford.
Already-promised funding for Stamford's new transportation center will be allocated, as well.
The State Bond Commission on Friday approved $537 million for transportation-related projects across the state, leveraging $600 million in FEDERAL funding.

On my side of town, in the city itself, they have, or are in the process of, replacing 3 bridges and realligned 2 roadways. Each project had federal money - I know because I saw the bid specs for vendor support for several of them.

And once again, that doesn't cover the entire maintance costs of every road and bride you use. The fact that you don't pay federal income tax means you are short changing the rest of us. Moocher.

Evidence is something submitted in a court of law usually by a competent first hand fact witness....
So, your definition of evidence taken from law subsumes a fact?

Is a fact a sub-set of evidence?

In other words, does evidence rest on facts?

Judicial notice can be used to point to common known facts, like the federal governments track record on wasteful spending.
Is a fact counted as evidence?

How would you distinguish between fact and truth?

The plan, which involved eminent domain takings, the relocation of 1,100 families and 400 businesses, was implemented amidst much controversy and several lawsuits that delayed the start of the project until 1968 when construction commenced on the three round apartment towers, St. John's Towers.

Much of the deteriorated downtown was razed to make way for the new downtown, resulting in a lack of historic buildings and a downtown that looks more contemporary and modern as compared to some its New England counterparts.

There was an article a day or two ago about how the St Johns Towers were an architectural marvel. I find that hard to grasp.

It does kind of suck to live in New England in a city that has no character.

Its even more embarrassing to drive over the border and see leafy NY towns that look more New England than we do.

It's a serious question - the difference between fact and truth.

I want to read what Voluntarist has to say in the regard because he tends to use words and concepts rather loosely and has scant respect for real knowledge or for superior intelligence aside from being conned by the dubious conspiracy theories of the Alex Jones or David Icke kind which he naively assumes to be the last word.

Stamford Downtown Development
Downtown development[edit]
By the mid-1950s downtown Stamford had fallen prey to severe urban blight. A once vibrant downtown became littered with vacant storefronts, empty lots, weak economy, unsafe and unsanitary housing. The town leaders at the time sought FEDERAL and STATE funding to launch a revitalization effort that would restore the core of the city to a vital urban center. On January 27, 1960 the City of Stamford and its redevelopment arm, the Urban Redevelopment Commission, entered into a contract with the Stamford New Urban Corporation, a subsidiary of the locally based and nationally active construction contractor the F. D. Rich Company that would lead to a dramatic altering of the face of downtown Stamford. The Rich Company, led by Frank D. Rich Jr., Robert N. Rich and Chief Legal Counsel Lawrence Gochberg, actively building in 25 of the 50 United States at the time, was selected out of a field of 10 developers vying for the opportunity to become the city's sole redeveloper of the 130-acre (0.53 km2) section of the central downtown area known as the Southeast Quadrant. More than $100 million in Federal, State and city funds were invested in a massive property acquisition, relocation, demolition and infrastructure creation program that paved the way for one of the most sweeping urban renewal efforts ever successfully carried out in the United States.[citation needed] The plan, which involved eminent domain takings, the relocation of 1,100 families and 400 businesses, was implemented amidst much controversy and several lawsuits that delayed the start of the project until 1968 when construction commenced on the three round apartment towers, St. John's Towers. These buildings still contain 360 apartments and originally served as relocation housing for some of the displaced residents. Much of the deteriorated downtown was razed to make way for the new downtown, resulting in a lack of historic buildings and a downtown that looks more contemporary and modern as compared to some its New England counterparts.

In that regard, Stamford and White Plains have a lot in common. Very "generic" cities, architecturally speaking, though North Stamford is a bit better.

Try and stay focused. The topic of conversation was you being a self-imposed, hypocritical mooch. Once you come to terms with who you are, then we can move on.

More likely your grandfather was considered unworthy to be employed by FD Rich, and to save face, created the family story how he refused to work with him.

More likely his grandfather was convicted on tax evasion and has instilled a deep hatred of government in his off springs.
