    If the choice is being on the UL, and I'm not talking about Underwriter's Laboratory, and employment in this climate, it's not that difficult a decision.

    This would be the second time in seven years some people there have to decide as there are a few former SportsTicker people at the Magazine, who landed there after ESPN moved the Ticker from Jersey City in July 2004.

    Keith Olbermann said it best: "Bristol is the most God-forsaken town in America."
    I lived there for three months, during which time the bowling alley burned down. The only fun to be had in that city.

    Bullshit. A lot of people live in West Hartford, or Avon, or Farmington, or New Britain, or anything in that area.
    No one who respects their belongings lives in Hartford.

    My best friend lives in Bristol. It sucks. Live in Farmington.

    I am in CT. West Hartford is a great town. Plenty of life. My only point is that all the doom and gloom you hear from people is misguided. Farmington is a great town to live in as is West Hartford and other areas in the valley.

    I just get annoyed at the "You've ever been to Bristol?" It's like people who work there don't have cars or something.

    People who bash Bristol oughta see the towns that make it look good in comparison.

    Kids in my hometown used to go to Bristol for nightlife. I really did just write that sentence.

    I think the jobs are entirely for the desk. Reporters don't have to move.

    OK, so make yourself unemployed and stay back in NYC. That'll show 'em.

    There are some very nice towns surrounding Bristol. But Avon? Farmington? You'll need on-air talent $ to afford those.

    I have some friends who work there who live in Plantsville.

    Avon, yes. Farmington is affordable. I lived there and I was a low-level grunt.
