METUCHEN, NJIn their inaugural rankings of real estate heavy hitters in the Garden State, the publication Return on Information-New Jersey (ROI-NJ) recognized three Middlesex County leaders for their influence in New Jersey’s economic well-being.

In a list of influencers which included Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, New Brunswick Development Corp. (Devco) President Chris Paladino was chosen as the most influential leader in New Jersey’s real estate scene for 2017.  In addition to Paladino, New Brunswick Mayor Jim Cahill — one of the leading voices among New Jersey’s mayors calling for responsible economic development in the 21st Century — and MCDO Chairman and Carpenter Contractors Trust President Kevin McCabe were named among the “Power Players” in the ROI-NJ 2017 rankings.

 “Middlesex County is at the crossroads of New Jersey’s economic future, and I think the ROI-NJ rankings reflect that,” said MCDO Vice Chair Beatrice Moskowitz.  “Thanks in part to our County Administration’s strong fiscal stewardship – maintaining a top credit rating for Middlesex County – combined with our proximity to world-class higher education and our County’s tradition of innovation that goes back to the Golden Age of Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park lab, we’re seeing so many wonderful things coming out of Middlesex County.  Congratulations to everyone named in the ROI-NJ Real Estate Influencers rankings, and let’s get to work for the people of the Garden State.”

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

I didn't get my Composition and Literature teacher at Montclair State College at all. A crusty old man with a dour disposition, Mr. Smith always seemed angry and rude. He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
