CTNJ/Opinion:  An angry country on the cliff’s edge

Susan Bigelow

Susan Bigelow is an award-winning columnist and the founder of CTLocalPolitics. She lives in Enfield with her wife and their cats.

Today, let me praise President Donald Trump for his statement following the shooting in Alexandria. The president said: “We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation’s capital is here because, above all, they love our country … [W]e are strongest when we are unified and when we work together for the common good.”

When I read this I closed my eyes, and for a moment I could imagine living in a country where there is respect for unity and our common humanity despite all our differences.

But I don’t live there. None of us do.

With all due respect, Susan Bigelow is irrelevant. I can’t find any awards that she’s won and I’ve actually reached out to her and asked her to name the awards and she refuses to list them.

@Danny, ditto. I read this entire piece. Some of her work actually builds towards a lucid argument for or against something. But this simply falls off the precipice into the chasm of mediocrity. In an effort to be profound, she is merely sincere. I do not understand how one attains the status of “award winning columnist”. Are cats and wives a requirement?

@Donna I’m a gay man, and I’m baffled myself. Thank GOD I voted for Trump. People like her are ruining this country. #MAGA

It would behoove Nancy On Norwalk to broaden the selection of articles and represent writers with more diverse views and expertise. There is a slew of important economic news about our state. I would recommend articles from the Yankee Institute or the WSJ and I am certain that others could recommend their favorites as well.

I would also like to know what awards Ms. Bigelow has won…

About this site

NancyOnNorwwalk.com was conceived as the place to go for Norwalk residents to get the real, unvarnished story about what is going on in and around their city. NancyOnNorwalk does not intend to be a print newspaper online; rather, it exists to pull the curtain back and shine a spotlight on how Norwalk is run and what is happening regarding issues that have an impact on taxpayers’ pocketbooks and safety. As an independent site, NancyOnNorwalk’s first and only allegiance is to the reader.

About Nancy

Nancy came to Norwalk in September 2010 and, after reporting on Norwalk for two years for another company, resigned to begin Nancy On Norwalk so she engage in journalism the way it was meant to be done. She is married to career journalist Mark Chapman, has a son, Eric (the artist and web designer who built this website), and two cats – a middle-aged lady and a young hottie who are learning how to peacefully co-exist.
