A New York DJ In Connecticut's Court
Politicians in Connecticut are insane. No, really.
I don't know how the Nutmeg State survived the events described in this New York Times article, dated June 18, 1992. I'll let the opening paragraph speak for itself.
"On cue: three, two, one . . . Welcome once again everybody to "Weicker in the Morning," where wacky, caustic morning deejay Gov. Lowell P. Weicker Jr. interviews New York radio jock Don Imus, who is pretending to be Governor of Connecticut for a day..."
My favorite line: "Mr. Imus...chafed that he didn't have "real power" because he couldn't execute any death-row inmates, or even taunt them on the telephone about the fall television lineup that they won't be able to see."
