It’s Official

June rain sets N.J. record, wettest since 1895 No, I’m not gloating.  I’m simply pointing out that I was right back in April when I warned that if we rushed to open the boardwalk something like this could happen.  (And it looks like this weekend is going to be a wash, too.) Noon update: Sun’s […]

Let Me Just Say

I Denounce This Senseless Act Of Vandalism

While Belmar Swims In The State “Grant Pool”,

Lakeside Residents Swim In Their Living Rooms! I tell you, at times I really don’t understand this administration’s spending priorities.  We sink tens of millions into building a new boardwalk in record time.  For the tourists.  We sink tens of millions into a marina that can just barely pay it’s own bills.  Again, for tourism. […]

Do We Legislate Morality?

Or Don’t We? A good point I heard made on RedEyeRadio this morning: So many liberals, when making the case for gay marriage, say that the government shouldn’t legislate morality.  They say that it shouldn’t be in the business of making moral judgements about human relationships. I agree.  Actually, as I’ve argued here, here and here, the government […]

Here we are with almost a month gone into our summer season, and one of our major revenue generators for the […]

June 2013 One Of Rainiest Ever

June Rainfall Record In Jeopardy. Believe me I didn’t want this.  As a co-signer of the boardwalk’s $20 million bond, I now need the beach revenues to be as great as possible (even though I don’t really like when it’s so crowded out there.)  Plus I like to go to the beach myself.  So although […]

Think Of What We’d Save On Flagpoles

For the second time Governor Chris Christie has ordered state facilities to fly their flags at half mast to mourn the passing of drug and alcohol-addled entertainers.  While New Jersey natives Whitney Houston and James Gandolfini were both very talented and very nice people I’m sure, neither one of them was any kind of hero. […]

If We Build It, They Will Come

But Do We Want Them To Come? And if we really don’t want them to come, why build it? I sat in on the meeting and presentation published below and I strongly recommend watching it.  It’s pretty interesting to see what the new buildings will look like, although one resident, retired designer and graphic artist […]
