How was Connecticut represented on this filth fiesta? That is sort of a good news/bad news situation. The good news is, we have only one Connecticut city listed in the Top 100. The bad news is that the city is #37 and it's Bridgeport! 

If you feel cheaper or feel as if you were let down I get it. I'm imagining many of you wanted to open this and see a surprise but no, it's the same story. If you have a guy named Stan that is known for stealing your dungarees, you work to take the pants pirate down, OR you work with Stan to find out what has him so bummed out that he has to steal your pants.

Bridgeport is our Stan, constantly ripping off our trousers, talking s--- and nothing ever gets done. He just takes our pants on the regular, everyone knows it and nothing changes. It's not like these negative reports about Bridgeport are not published on the World Wide Web, the word is out.

Does that analogy work for anyone other than me?
