First up, a link to an article in the Friday, Feb. 28, 2003, New York Times, about Westport by my very talented sister-in-law, Joanne Kaufman. Here is the link (registration may be required if you have not signed up for New York Times Web access before.)

I’m not sure how many blogs (short for “Web Logs” for the uninitiated) there are related to Westport, Conn., but thought I’d give one a try.
I’m also not sure whether Dan Woog’s site qualifies as a blog, but he does write regularly about Westport—both online and in print.
A bit of my background. I am a longtime Westport resident and I currently serve as Moderator (chief honcho) of Westport’s local governing body, the Representative Town Meeting (RTM). (For more on the RTM, go to Westport’s official Web site.)
I began my journalism career in Westport as a teenager working for the now defunct Westport Town Crier. After several decades working for a news agency (UPI) and a network (CBS), mostly as a foreign correspondent, I’m back where I started, observing events in Westport. The more things change etc.
I intend this to be news snippets and some random musings about Westport as well as items I think will interest fellow Westporters (and those anywhere with an interest in our town). It is not intended to be a site for all Westport news; there are local newspapers for that.
