First - highlights of a “mock” presidential debate between two prominent Connecticut politicians at Central Connecticut State University last week. Ned Lamont has Obama’s back. Tom Foley is in romney’s corner. It’s ON!

This week is also the 50th anniversary of Cuban Missile Crisis - we’ll look at how secret recordings JFK made help us understand the aftermath of this complicated time.

And we’ll look at the life John Quincy Adams. The first son of a founding father to be president, he left written diaries covering 65 years of history - and they tell the story of a man who lived a nearly “superhero” life.
