Where We Live host John Dankosky recently had lunch with Luis Suárez and thought he was joking when he ordered "The Dankosky." Therefore, Colin McEnroe will guest-host our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse. Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton dropped out of the race for governor and threw his (lukewarm) support behind Tom Foley for the Republican nomination.

Meanwhile, Governor Dannel Malloy is in Chicago for a meeting with the Democratic Governors Association, which recently withdrew its lawsuit regarding the state campaign finance law.

Our weekly news roundtable The Wheelhouse will recap the week's news and see if it can scrape together enough money to purchase Wallace Stevens' home.
