HARTFORD -- "The world is flat! Flat! Flat! Flat!" Dan Malloy slams his palms flat against the top of his desk, again and again. "Flat, I tell you! Flat! Flat! Flat!"
This is the governor's impression of state Sen. Len Suzio, the leading Republican in the charge against his deal to bring Jackson Laboratory's new genomic research center to the grounds of the University of Connecticut Health Center. When he is done banging on the desk, the governor looks up, grinning. Ben Barnes, Tim Bannon and Arielle Reich are giggling.
