Maximizing Dollars in the Port Authority

A newspaper story this week was headlined, "New Port authority Chief's focus is...Maximizing Dollars."  Certainly maximizing dollars is their strong suit. They've excelled at it for years. Dozens of employees who take in more income in overtime than their base salaries, by putting in more overtime hours than there are hours in a week. At least by their accounting.

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.

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.

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.

Democratic Party Basks in Victory

As expected, after a short flurry of political flimflammery, the election came and went, leaving no observable change in the New Jersey political landscape in its wake. If anything, the state government is an even deeper blue. Like many voters,
