The John Oliver Saga

In what must have been one of the bizarrest stories of the pandemic, talk-show host John Oliver took it upon himself to launch a random attack on the City of Danbury. Mayor Mark Boughton wasn't going to take that lying down, and much hilarity ensued. 

A truce was finally arranged, the terms of which involved Mr.  Oliver donating a large sum to Connecticut food insecurity charities, some of which found its way to the Pantry.
