  •  A question for Greg (5+ / 0-)

    This morning's New Haven Register had a front page story and photo about Joe Lieberman joining the Newtown charitable fund set up to handle donations. The photo shows Lieberman with a half dozen microphones in front of him. Do you know who invited or alerted the media? I'm so hoping it was not Lieberman.

    Maybe the guy is trying to do good but...

      press conference. I kind of gathered that some folks from one of the many other gun tragedies came in and advised on setting up charitable organizations right away, knowing the influx of donations Newtown was about to receive. Seemed to me Lieberman was just hitching his buggy to the whole thing, but my bias is showing.

      I'm pretty tired of being told what I care about.

      there's 8 million in that fund (you can't begin to imagine the awe-inspiring generosity of people) and given some of the known scammers, I think the small town managers wanted some reassurance from a familiar figure that there'd be some oversight.

      So I don't take it as Lieberman grandstanding.
