Anybody ever read Page Six in the NY Post? Today there was an item that said Corzine's current girlfriend is the ex-wife of the real-life cop who is played by Russell Crowe in the movie American Gangster!

I just read the other day that Corzine has endorsed Hillary Clinton. As much as I love New Jersey, the state of politics there in recent years makes me miss "Old" Jersey.

When I was a teenager, New Jersey was what you would call a "bellweather" state, similar to Ohio. It was neither overwhelmingly Republican nor Democrat. There were lots of independent voters. There was no sales tax or state income tax. We could take pride in the fact that we were not like neghboring "big, bad New York."

Now New Jersey has become almost a clone of socialist Massachusetts (where I lived for 17 years), politically. Well, not quite, because there is still one politician in New Jersey I have a great deal of respect for, Rep. Scott Garrett. Rep. Chris Smith is pretty good, too.

Between the New York media influence and these millionaires buying themselves governorships and senate seats, New Jersey has had it rough in recent years.
