Connecticut Public Safety Commissioner Arthur Spada has had a rocky relationship with the state police union, and the union's latest gripe is this: Spada uses big words.

In a letter carried in the union newsletter a few months ago, the former judge used words such as "de rigueur" and "calumny." That sent some troopers running for their dictionaries, according to The Hartford Courant.

"The fact that the commissioner would select words that are far removed from common conversation and day-to-day language is just another indication of just how out of touch he is with the working trooper," union Treasurer Mark Wallack responded in the union newsletter.
