Like Chicken Soup, It Just Can’t Hurt

Finally, one New Jersey town has given zoning board approval for a State licensed Medicinal Marijuana dispensary to open. Montclair becomes the first. But before sufferers from the nine officially designated diseases qualifying the afflicted for marijuans to ease their pain, the State is still trying to stall the program to death. Or so it seems.

Has Political Correctness Gone Too Far?

Has everybody gone crazy? I remember reading once that people suffering from psychoses take everything seriously. They cannot recognize that metaphor, things said in humor, plays on words, exercises of imagination, and the like are not necessarily factual. They lack the quality of abstraction. All assertions are taken as fact.

What the Hell Was He Doing Out?

Speaking of stomach-turning stories how about this one. A Jersey City career criminal who shot a 9 year old boy and an 11 year old girl on a playground in 2003, is charged with new counts of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon by a felon, and other charges over an incident in a housing complex.

Joe Paterno is Gone!

Joe Paterno is gone but not forgotten.  Unfortunately, what will not be forgotten is the probability that he was party to the coverup of some of the most lurid sex crimes imaginable.  Certainly ever committed by a person who was himself a legend: Coach Jerry Sandusky. The witnessed scene of the burly, powerful Sandusky physically overpowering and sexually assaulting a terrified ten year old boy is enough to turn the stomach of a buzzard. By Paterno's own words that  "in hindsight, I should have done more", he reveals clearly that he knew what was going on yet did nothing. So the University did what it had to do to preserve its integrity.

The Fight Against Education Reform Just Got Tougher

Fifty-six percent of New Jersey schools missed the benchmark for student achievement, according to educational officials. That means fifty-six percent of our public schools did not have enough students passing state tests to meet their targets. To anyone outside the Education Cartel, that is not good news. Inside the establishment, it's Ho Hum. Failure, schmailure, so long as we keep our nice jobs.

Utility Companies Likely to Recoup Losses From Rate Payers

There's speculation on whether Jersey's giant Utilities can and will hit up ratepayers for huge bucks to cover the cost of cleanup and restoration after Irene, Lee, and the Saturday Snow storm. This would be hundreds of millions of additional dollars to be added to your bill. On that subject, the regulating agency, the Board of Public Utilities seems to be speaking with forked tongue,
