Guy not from Connecticut: "Connecticut is totally rich preppy and away from the real world . . The useless part between Massachusetts and New York. YEWSELESS!!!!!!"

Oh, that explains it.
Unlike the largely white Hartford once run by clubby Yankee businessmen everyone called the Bishops, Perez's Hartford is a city of minorities, many from Jamaica and Puerto Rico, with the largest percentage of Latinos north of Miami and east of the Mississippi. A way station for suburban-bound immigrants, Hartford has a homeownership rate of less than 25% -- the nation's second-lowest, after Newark, N.J. Thirty-one percent of its 125,000 residents live in poverty. Only Brownsville, Texas, ranks lower.
