The Nose: Hooray For Hollywood, Boo-Hoo For Hartford
Chion Wolf is (temporarily!) headed to Hollywood.
This week an obscure Wall Street-oriented blog put Hartford on a list of ten dead cities, and, in Manchester, fans of the restaurant Shady Glen were thrilled by the resolution of a crisis involving the cheese they use on a special -- even legendary -- cheeseburger.
We analyze and explain both stories on the Nose today, and they seem just a tiny bit related -- because, yes, Hartford has a lot of problems, maybe more problems than the capital city of Connecticut really should have.
And one reason those problems are hard to fix is because people around here hate to change anything. There are parts of the fast-developing Southwest where buildings are razed overnight and people barely notice. Change is a constant.
But in an area where people lose their stuff over a shift in cheese supplier, it's hard to implement new visions. Or maybe we just like the way things are.
