As usual, Murphy doing nothing. Congrats, you met a movie actor. Maybe both of them can dress up like Dora the Explorer and wander around CT looking for anyone who will talk to them. Nice job Chris. You're the poster child for term limits and the reason we need a return to per-diem politicians. No salary, and you only get paid when Congress is in session. Guys like you shouldn't be millionaires off taxpayer's backs.
