New Jersey's Failing Infrastructure

For decades, New Jersey has been kicking the can down the road with regard to infrastructure. Well, as of now even that road is in such bad shape, that the can can’t be kicked any further.

The American Society of Civil Engineers gave New Jersey a failing grade of D+. Almost 10% of our bridges are “structurally deficient”. The same for about 42% of our roads. Water systems, NJ ...

The Gift of Giving

In early December of 2017, a chef friend called me and during our conversation, it somehow came up that we should figure out a way to feed families in need during the holidays. I’m not even sure how we got on the topic, we were probably joking about it, but that discussion got me thinking that there was no reason why we couldn’t. I just needed to figure out how. 

After ...

70 Years Ago, Camden Man Became Nation's First Mass Murderer

His name, like the names of his victims, is nearly forgotten. 

But what Howard Unruh did 70 years ago today in Camden, N.J. foreshadowed the insanity of mass shootings we live with today.

A Day When the Sea Was More Hostile Than the Wind or Sun

The boy struggled with a cart filled with beach stuff as he dragged it down the boardwalk. It was fish-tailing behind him and I almost told him to push rather than pull, but decided to mind my own business. I was pushing a small load myself, my sleeping grandson in a stroller.

He was with a girl a few years younger, a woman who looked to be a grandmother, and several small children. His role ...

Automation Inflation

I hate robots.

They talk funny and have no personality.

If that makes me a human racist, then so be it.

I talked to a robot on the phone the other day. it was sitting virtually within the deep, dark recesses of a computer connected to the working end of an 800 number. It tried to convince me that it was human. It asked me flat questions in an artificially chipper voice and then pretended ...

When Your Number's Up

I have never been waterboarded, but I can’t imagine it can be much worse than going to the DMV.

This is what I was thinking as I was standing in line on the sidewalk at 11:00 in the morning.

There was a line outside the DMV because there was no room inside the DMV. The inside was filled with disgruntled motorists sitting in chairs holding tickets with numbers on them. Numbers like D5 ...
