“06880 On The Go”: Westport Trivia

Colin Morgeson completed his “06880” internship in fine style this week.

The Staples High School senior — well, he graduated Tuesday — scoured Westport for contestants to play a local trivia game.

What he found may surprise you. It surprised him, for sure.

There are 2 twists at the end. One involves the answer to a question.

The other … well, click below.

    “Westport Trivia” WTF????
    Were you guys asleep when Gerry Kuroghlian (my favorite SHS English teacher) taught us to avoid redundancy in written communication?

    Compo comes from the Native American (Pequot. maybe?) word “compaug” meaning bears’ fishing ground. For many years the telephone number for the former Westport Historical Society was the easily remembered and appropriate (203) 227-1835. That is, until some brilliant somebody decided it should be changed to something with no meaning or historical connection.
