New Jersey Notes and Tidbits

  • The New Jersey shore is sinking at a rate of about 16" a century. Add to that the rising seas caused by global warming and you have the possibility that our venerable New Jersey Shore will cease to exist as we know it. This is a grim article to read on a Monday morning. You've been warned.

  • Ellis Island storied past is slowly emerging from hiding and offering glimmers of yesteryear to a curious public. This story is much more heartwarming than the last, especially the part about the Island falling under Garden State sovereignty.

  • According to his ex-wife-to-be Dina Matos McGreevy, the erstwhile Governor and current gay American Jim McGreevy is not gay. He's bi-sexual. That's right, bisexual. You buy, he gets sexual. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • Tom Hester takes a look at how the majority Dems in Trenton will make up for the projected budget shortfalls without raising taxes.

  • Ever wonder why so many State Senators are leaving Trenton? Josh Gohlke takes a peek.

  • Dealers at the Trump Casino in Atlantic City voted to unionize. With the vote they join employees at Caesars. Now that I think about it, how funny is it that they are called "dealers."

  • A group from Seton Hall University tries to shed some sunlight into the mess in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

  • The game was decided in the first half, so the celebration continued until the buzzer as the Rutgers Lady Knights beat the hell out of LSU to advance to tonight's finale to claim the big prize in women's basketball. How proud are we? You go girls!! The game is tonight at 8pm on ESPN. Will you be watching?
