Roundup: Candidates’ Debate, BLM, More


The 2nd presidential debate has been canceled.

Today (Tuesday, October 13, 12 noon, Zoom), the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce and Westport Library fill the gap. They’ll sponsor a virtual one with our area’s State Senate candidates: Will Haskell and Kim Healy (26th District), and Tony Hwang and Michelle McCabe (28th District),

Initial questions will come from the Chamber board. Viewers can use Zoom’s chat feature to ask their own questions.

This Saturday’s international march for women’s rights builds on a similar march in January 2017.

A group of women, men and children from the Unitarian Church in Westport heads to Stamford to support that gathering. Click here to register.

The Church is also sponsoring a “virtual opportunity” (Saturday, October 17, 4 p.m.) for anyone concerned about being in a large group during the pandemic.

They also seek pictures, videos and written comments, on the theme of “why I would march if I could.” Email events@uuwestport.org. Put “Women’s March” in the subject line.


And finally … today is International Skeptics Day. Yeah, right!
