'Most Influential' section omitted Ribicoff, included Paul Newman error

On June 16, the New Haven Register published a special section titled “The Most Influential People in Connecticut History” a piece I found to be most fascinating and informative; thank you!
The piece raised two questions for me which I would like to comment on. First, I was curious as to why former Gov. Abraham Ribicoff was omitted, a person who was not only influential in our state, but certainly on the national stage as well. His encounter at the Chicago National Democratic Convention made glaring headlines. He served as senator and cabinet member as well.
In addition, in reading through the backgrounds of the individuals, I picked up on an error in the write-up of Paul Newman. The article sites his role in some of his more famous movies, one of which was “Some Like it Hot” with Tony Curtis and Marilyn Monroe. However, he was not in the movie; the other actor who played opposite Curtis and Monroe was Jack Lemmon, not Newman.

how could you include the Reverend Manship, a agitator who tried to prevent police from doing their jobs.He is nothing but a self-serving nobody. A better choice would have been the late Dave Solomon, an institution in the sports column of the Register for many years
