Capitol Report

For years, the most common answer has been Nutmegger, which makes perfect sense since we are just cranking out the nutmeg these days.

The US Government Publishing Office Style manual feels differently and says we are Connecticuters.

Senator Murphy says going to have a little chat with publishing folks in DC about this.
