Sounds like frosting on a turd to me
If you stop in the coffeeshops and newstands around town, you're liable to hear that the Kleen Energy plant is a raw deal for the people of Middletown.
If you read the paper, you'll discover that it's likely a bad deal for everyone in Connecticut. Both the Office of Consumer Counsel (which would like the deal re-structured in its entirety) and Attorney General Dick Blumenthal (who wants subsidies stripped from the plan), have cast their vote against the current (no pun intended) plan.
Councilman David Bauer was credited with calling the deal frosting on a cow pie. A spoonful of sugar doesn't make everything go down easier.
