CT Viewpoints: Traffic stops, African-Americans and the drug war - "Unlike arrest rates, incarceration rates, and parole violation rates, which are highly subject to biased reporting, traffic stop data broken out by race is one of the better ways to evaluate wrongful race-based discrimination. Prior to the stop, the police officer knows nothing about the driver other than sex, skin color, car exterior, and how she or he is driving."
Hartford Courant: Mark Stewart Greenstein Focused His Campaign On Bringing The Whalers Back.

Two years ago, he got 236 votes out of 121,253 cast in the Democratic primary in Rhode Island and 27 out of 250,983 cast in New Hampshire."
