Dumbassery In Hartford

The brain trusts in Hartford in an attempt to get more people to go downtown have doubled the amount of parking tickets issued in 2005 during 2006. I guess their theory is that if you car isn't stolen, vandalized or broken into and if you're not hit up for "spare change" by some self medicated bompy wallowing in his/her own crapulence, you should at least get a capricious fine for visiting Hartford.

Just the other day downtown merchants were waxing hopeful that a new beat cop will help people feel safer downtown, so maybe people will come down town to eat, drink and be merry. Rots -O- Ruck. Downtown Hartford has to compete with it's own South and West ends for diner's dollars not to mention West Hartford Center, where you can dine at any number of places and park without concern for your car or your person. Smooth move Hartford.
