Opinion: Visiting a Re-Opened Mall in Georgia Gave Me a Glimpse of NJ’s Future

May 21, 2020

ATLANTA, GA -- In the not-so-distant future, our corona-closed world will gradually re-open, allowing New Jerseyans the freedom to shop out, to dine in and to basically do anything that’s not based in our living rooms.

May 24, 2020

Memorial Day, as the name implies, was established to create a day of remembrance to honor soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice in the U.S. Civil War. Our culture today, however, associates the holiday with the start of summer activities, like barbecues and going to the beach. How did this once somber holiday become the signal of summer? 

After the Civil War ended in the spring of ...
