This post card image is kinda small but I found the information on the back to be interesting and sad. Sad because Hartford is now nothing compared to what it was. That’s what Hartford and Connecticut deserve given the poor management and anti-business policies and tax rates in the city and state. The politicians of Hartford rival any and all crappy corrupt politicians in any city in any state.
While were on the subject, why don’t politicians have to pass tests like claims handlers have to? We’re required to take CE (Continuing Education) with classes dealing with the technical issues we deal with as well as ethics. Before we can get our adjusters license we have to take a State administered test showing we have a solid understanding of the applicable laws and ethical standards. Politicians should be required to do the same, ethics in particular! Everyone running for office should have to show a solid understanding of business principles. Can you imagine the uproar and screams of protest from the often stupid, ignorant, uneducated blithering idiots running our cities towns and states? We must make this happen. Government is business, if you know nothing about how to run a business you are out!
Anyway, here is the postcard and the info that was on the back:
“Hartford, Capitol of the State of Connecticut, is an important commercial and manufacturing city, called the insurance city because forty-six nationally known Insurance Companies maintain home offices in Hartford. The Travelers Tower, 527 feet in height, is the tallest in New England while the Aetna Life Insurance Company is housed in the largest Colonial structure in the world. The State Capitol is a beautiful building erected in 1877 at a cost of over $3,000,000. The city has many parks including Elizabeth Park, scene of an annual Rose festival in June.”
