Jersey on my mind

This morning I found myself on an inbound Max train with my morning New York Times in my lap. Very unusual -- me being up at that hour, and me cruising through Parkrose on light rail. (We have a great, albeit expensive, transit system, except for the dopey streetcars and the you-know-what [rim shot].)

Anyway, on their Metro page were two stories out of the Garden State that caught my eye:

First, I noticed a case that I'm guessing My Bro the Prosecutor will likely get a piece of. What a place.

Second, here's a guy who's been in the news for around 40 years. Charging 500 bucks an hour, and that's his charity discount rate! And here I am blogging for free.

Jack oh Jack. Why decry the federal monitor's rate? Follow the example and agree to faithfully report on the Tram or the Pretty Darn Conceited people for a percentage of the open-ended budget. Tell 'em you'll be glad to give up some private webspace in exchange for a few coins. Heck, you won't even need a public hearing for your condemnation. And you'll laugh all the way to the bank.

The second cop killed in Essex County in a few months, one from Newark, now this good guy! Both shooters were out on bail for prior drug/weapons offenses! I retired 3 years ago and it is only getting worse in good old Newark Jack!
