I hope the Penguins don't get stuck to the sugar water compound that makes "iceless skating," possible. I wonder how much New London Main Street and the City will lose on this stupidity this year? We never did get an honest accounting of revenues versus costs last year.

I wonder how much New London loses on your stupidity alone. Fail or succeed the skating rink is an honest attempt to enliven downtown. What have you proposed as an alternative?
