MIDDLESEX COUNTY, NJ -  It is what a county fair should be.

Rides, deliciously horrible-for-you food, refillable root beer tankards, corny-yet-wonderful sideshows, Democrats, Republicans, rabbits, Girl Scouts, wrestlers, garish games, music and plenty of fun.

That's what patrons of the 79th annual Middlesex County Fair have found thus far.

E STREET - While a tired nation is demanding gun control (yet again), Springsteen guitarist Stevie Van Zandt is having none of it.

ON AIR - Gov. Phil Murphy had his very first "Ask the Governor" monthly program last night. He appeared on News 12 New Jersey to field your questions about all things New Jersey.

Or, perhaps he is angry we didn't frequent his now-defunct casinos in Atlantic City. Or, perhaps he is seeking revenge for the fact that 546,345 more New Jerseyans voted for ...

ON THE RAILS - Anyone who commutes by train should be laser focused on Donald Trump today. Not to capture the latest buffoonery, but because the President is unveiling his long-awaited infrastructure plan.
