Bowling for Rutgers

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights almost certainly clinched a bowl bid with yesterday's dismantling of Cincinnati. I was there, slupring turkey soup and talking to the faithful.

What Can Brown Do For You?

The worst business idea in the history of business ideas: Disgraced FEMA head Michael Brown announced he will open a disaster planning firm.

Um. Brownie? You suck at this job.

"Hurricane Katrina showed how bad disasters can be, and there's an incredible need for individuals and businesses to understand how important preparedness is," Brown said.

Oh, yeah? If it weren't for the flooding and all the unecessary death and suffering, the biggest disaster in the Gulf would have been you.

I'm not one to wish pain on others or tell people what to do with their lives, but if you were a government or business official in Japan and you failed this horrifically, I'm pretty sure the only thing you'd be opening would be your internal organs with a large sword.

And on a lighter note, what's with the UPS slogan "What can Brown do for you?" Seriously, try hard to watch these commercials and not think they are talking about doodie. Maybe it's just me, though.

Show Me The Dredging

Act Three in the ongoing Raritan River dredging saga will take your breath away. Or possibly producing bedrock shale shaking yawns. Depending on your point of view.

Musical Notes and Personal Attacks

Is it a conflict of interest to sit on the Rutgers University board of governer's (the ruling body of the state's public college) and New Brunswick's development agency (which does business with Rutgers and plans to displace several businesses to make way for a new development)? Both sides snipe, you decide. Then they snipe again.

Then read about kids in New Brunswick picking up their new trombones for the first time.

Or kids in New Brunswick learning about crime scene investigation techniques.

Or kids in New Brunswick trying to decide if they want to be automotive mechanics when they grow up.

All in a week's work.
