How will body cams transform the work of police, especially if they are subject to Freedom of Information laws?
Are our top judges becoming legislators?
Dan Klau (pictured), a leading First Amendment and open government lawyer and I had a lively conversation about these and other topics on the most recent episode of WNHH radio’s “Legal Eagle.”
He also sang the legal blues—literally.

The fourth installment of Northern Remedy — WNHH’s weekly show dedicated to New Haven’s music, past, present, and future — took a ride from hip hop to country-fried, from the Shags to the Sawtelles to the Flaming Tsunamis.

“We just came here to party / We just came here to party / We ain’t trying to hurt nobody,” Corey Lee rapped from the stage to a packed house on Sunday night, part of a fleet and varied lineup of artists that took over the Outer Space for ReignFest 2015.

Kryssi Battalene pulled her guitar in close and reached her left arm out around it, a two-second tune-up before she had to hold down the lead guitar part in “Before I Get Out Of Bed.” She looked out into the audience and smiled, the corners of her eyes crinkling just slightly in the blue light.

“Everyone who loves jazz is cool,” said Mayor Toni Harp.
She said that between sets at the kick-off for the 33rd New Haven Jazz Festival held this past Saturday night on the Green. This year’s festival celebrates the women of jazz, although not all the musicians were female. The Karrin Allyson Quartet headlined, Isabella Mendes and Sambeleza played an hour-long set, and the green filled up early for the festival’s perennial openers, the Jazz Haven All Star Youth Band.
