an 85 year old walks into danbury hospital and starts shooting? well we all know how i feel about guns.

not much known yet. well there is the fact the nurse that ended up getting shot THREW HIS BODY IN FRONT OF SOMEONE ELSE. so we know the nurse is a hero. i also believe even though he was shot 3 times, he will recover

(ps what's with the courant teaming with fox? i'm not even going to call it faux because the LOCAL fox news isn't the same as the national FAUX 'NEWS'.)

Shooting Inside Danbury Hospital

The Hartford Courant / Fox CT

DANBURY - An 85-year-old hospital patient faces first-degree assault and other charges after opening fire this afternoon at Danbury Hospital and wounding a nurse.

Police are still working to determine why Stanley Lupienski of Brookfield took a gun to the hospital. He apparently shot a nursing supervisor three times in the hospital's eighth floor cardiology department. The nurse was rushed to the emergency room. Hospital officials said he was in stable condition.

"We take care of patients all the time and a lot of times patients are upset with us for one reason or another," said Dr. Aparna Oltikar, a hospitalist at Danbury Hospital. "To think they can just do this, it changes your view of what you do."..................

Experts: Barnum about more than showbiz

Like most Bridgeporters, Yohuru Williams grew up surrounded by the name P.T. Barnum.

Indeed, the name of the one-time Bridgeport mayor and circus impresario is seemingly everywhere in the city -- Barnum Avenue, the Barnum Museum, P.T. Barnum Apartments, etc. But, given the ubiquity of his moniker, Barnum remained something of a mystery to Williams, who knew him primarily as a slick entertainer and promoter.

"When you think about P.T. Barnum, he still kind of comes off as a slimy showman," said Williams, also vice president for history education at the American Institute for History Education in Swedesboro, N.J. "He has this rogue element about him."

Yet, upon doing research on Barnum for an upcoming book on teaching history, Williams discovered another, seldom discussed aspect to Barnum's personality: that of a passionate advocate for civil rights and against slavery.................
