Introducing CTs newest online paper: CTMirror

Writing for the New Haven Advocate, great Nutmeg reporter Greg Hladky introduces us to the CT Mirror:

Right after the invasion of Iraq, the brilliant strategists running the U.S. occupation disbanded the Iraqi army. It turned out that sending all those veteran dudes into the streets without jobs (but with lots of bullet-and-bomb expertise) was a bad idea. As in, vicious insurgency bad.

Something like that seems to be going on in Connecticut's media world, where reporters and editors laid off by traditional outlets like the Hartford Courant are joining a revolution in the way news is reported.

They've already done several worthwhile investigative pieces.
