(Bridgeport-AP, Mar. 7, 2005 8:55 AM) _ Bridgeport high schools will be keeping an eye out for slow students. Not slow academically, but rather slow footed students.
As one way to address violence in the schools in the past, the idea is to eliminate so-called "mall mentality" with students congregating in the hallways between classes.
Beginning today, students will have to get from one class to another in a set amount of time or face detention. Several violations could lead to tougher discipline.
The time to get from one class to the next has been increased from four minutes to six minutes. The school systems has hired hall monitors to keep the students moving.
New Haven is where I discovered what true brick oven pizza was about. I also realized something about Wooster Street. There is NO reason to wait in line for pizza in New Haven. There are many places that were as good as Sally's and Pepe's but just didn't get the press. Modern Apizza is just as good and has tables open.
Town Pizza was always my favorite. I'd never had Greek pizza before moving to New Haven. Nothing like white pie with spinach and feta.
