Who is Sad City Hartford?

The city of Hartford is home to many bloggers, and one of my favorite blogs is “Sad City Hartford.”      It chronicles life in our capital city as seen through the eyes of a man who calls himself Hakaan Loob.     That’s  just a pen name taken by the author, who has never identified himself until now.    In fact, I didn’t even know who he was until I met him here at our studios.  

This Sunday on Face the State, we will talk with the founder of Sad City, who I assure you is not some guy spouting off about Hartford from the confines of his parents’ suburban basement.     His blog is well thought out, and has taught me a thing or two about our beloved yet beleagured city.  Oh yeah, and that grey blob won’t be covering his face and he’ll use his real name.

Tune in this Sunday at 11AM only on Face the State.  If you’d like to check out Sad City, here it is :

  1. Perhaps “well thought out”, but certainly not well written! It’s actually pretty terrible, and I don’t understand why a respectable newsman would praise it.


  2. Just caught a glimpse of this discussion. Anything anybody can say that’s positive regardless of the topic is a breath of fresh air. However, the concept, despite it’s attempt at being somewhat unconventional, still smacks of convention. Has Michael Dunshee delved deeper in other cultures in the city? Has he checked out the crustier end of the West End and the punk scene there?
