Elections, Corrections, and Award Selections

Questions to ponder this week while reading The Home News Tribune:

If you hold board of education elections and no one comes, do taxes still go up? How much is an hour in a cage worth to aid sexual abuse victims? And does Middlesex County's Teacher of the Year have the right stuff to beat down the competition for the state crown or will she suffer in the swimsuit competition?

1994: Seems like an awfully long time ago...

Just Say No To Self Googling

Yes, dedicated readers of this blog might recognize most of my latest column. But understand I'm doing my best to spread the wealth to 60,000 Central Jerseyans.

And in unrelated news, Highland Park suspends their indicted tax collector. Only took them six days.

Why We Fight

Or at least: Why We Won't Be Leaving Afghanistan Anytime Soon

Thieving and Grieving

The Highland Park tax collector is indicted in case of $400,000 in missing tax receipts. An East Brunswick defense lawyer pleads guilty to theft for accepting money for services he never rendered.

And a Franklin woman is laid to rest after a fire in her home killed her and a volunteer firefighter.

Shooting Yourself In The Foot...Literally

I can't believe I've never seen this video before.

DEA Agent Lee Paige, 45, gives a gun demonstration to a Florida youth group, bragging he's the only one in the room professional enough to carry his Glock .40 gun. Which he then accidently fires into his foot.


And now he's suing the government for distributing the video and making him a laughingstock. Buddy, you did this one all by yourself.

Huckster in Chief

I've been planning for weeks to write a simple, paint-by-numbers blog to explain to almost anyone how we have a dangerously incompetent president in the White House. Fuck that.

If you voted for Bush in 2004, watch this video clip and explain to me why this man should be leading this country. No space limitations on your response. Feel free to use big words.

Law and Odor

A murder trial begins in New Brunswick. And based one attorney's massive quantity of cologne, it's gonna be a stinky one.

The Last Stick

Ever wonder if someone could screw up the $100 question on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Meet the worst. Contestant. Ever.

Gwyneth Pharoah: Your son shall not eat the Apple in the Garden of Coldplay

Let My Baby Go

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin gave birth to a baby boy over the weekend. To make up for their firstborn daughter's name, Apple, they named him Moses.

Because it is not at all presumptuous to name your children after the great heroes of the bible. (There is a reason so much of Mexico and South America is named Jesus and that reason is stupidity and wishful thinking).

I will name my son Rubik, after humanity's great puzzle.

Stealing Bread From The Mouths of Decadence

Rutgers kids paint things to feed people and keep Zimbabwean woman from selling their bodies. Make sense? Only in New Brunswick kids, only in New Brunswick.

A 60th Birthday Gift Only a Mother (Mine) Could Love

My mom turns 60 tomorrow, and you can see her gift here.

And here you can read my 27th story on the progress of Route 18. My mom is older, though it doesn't seem that way.

Y? Because I Say So

The YM-YWHA of Highland Park proposes a 12-story high-rise condo to pay for their new $8 million building. Wondering how that'll play in this little town? Wonder no more.
