    PNR – pretty sure I weather far more jabs than you do. Easy for you to say from where you sit.

    Verchio is a friend of mine and still is and I’ve seen him huff around here mad a variety of times. Never I have told him to grow up. But no matter… I didn’t huff at all, merely put up a tweet. Didn’t feel the child comment fit at all so I said so.

    There is far more going on here that little interpersonal spats that go on everyday. Pat, report on that stuff.

      I’m sure you do take more heat than I, but I choose to stay out of the kitchen. If you don’t like the heat, you can step out of the kitchen, too.

      In any event, taking such squabbles public on social media is unbecoming.

        PNR, you make such squabbles and take them public here and on your blog. Your comments to Hickey are the height of hypocrisy.

    Reps Hickey and Verchio should both be ashamed of this public display of juvenile behavior. We elected you both to have enough sense to sit down, and talk to each other in a civil manner. Not tweet some snarky comment, when you should have talked to each other civilly.

    C’mon guys.

    Why are you picking on Hickey? He asked a legitimate question. Verchio is the one acting like an egotistical child.

    I have heard before that things are decided before the open meetings and testimony at times. Based on the behavior of a legislator (no longer there) when I attended a hearing a few years ago, this seems this could be a fact.

      You are starting to get it Springer. It’s why they vilify and go after outspoken conservatives who dare oppose them and force issues to be debated.
