Even liberal-leaning Courant questions travel

Even the liberal-leaning Hartford Courant has begun to question the need for all of the faraway conferences & seminars attended by municipal (Hartford) officials:

Majority Leader rJo Winch, for example, has taken at least four trips to conferences or other events since the summer of last year. This week she was in Orlando for a National League of Cities meeting. Reasonable travel for professional development is normally a good thing. But in these difficult times, travel should be cut back.

Don't worry about Cheshire though. Just as soon as the Council's Rubber Stamp majority is given authorization to question Cheshire's trips around the country, I'm sure they'll be all over it. Until then though, it'll continue to be considered heresy.

I guess the Jedi Mind Trick doesn't work on the Courant?
