    WAIT! You forgot that Connecticut is the SUBMARINE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD and that SUBMARINES ARE AWESOME and there’s a museum here about them and and actual sub you can walk around on and they make lots of subs too.http://www.ussnautilus.org/…and this was also a huge election-year issue, as everyone in Connecticut was claiming to have “saved the sub base” a few years back when it was slated for closure.
