DARIEN -- The party was at the Dilenschneiders', and everyone was going. Nominally, it was a party to honor Henry Kissinger on the occasion of another book he was putting out. So Linda McMahon showed up, pressing flesh for another Senate run, as did Chris Shays, who was returning to the state to run against her. The guests packed the shoreline trophy of a house, eager for a chance to greet the eminence of realpolitik: the great Kissinger. But Dan Malloy wasn't there for the guest of honor. He was there for a chance to have a few quiet words with his host.
Bob Dilenschneider was his source for information about UBS. Dilenschneider would tell him if the rumors that the bank was pulling out of Stamford were true, and what, if anything, the governor could do to stop them.
