The Jaffe Briefing - November 16, 2018

STUCK - It's as if the entire state forgot how to deal with snow at the exact same time. The autumn storm created havoc during yesterday's commute, with cops responding to hundreds of crashes. Hours of traffic. Roads closed. Speed restrictions on major highways. Cars piled all over the place, or running out of gas or breaking down. The Port Authority just gave up on its bus service ...

The Jaffe Briefing - November 15, 2018

STATEWIDE - What?? Early dismissals in schools around the state? And for what?? Snow? Are you kidding? Isn't it just mid-November? A real winter weather advisory? A big wintry mix of sleet, snow and rain to hit in north and central Jersey this afternoon? Up to six inches? Really? C'mon!

BURLINGTON - It began as another great GoFundMe story of a Florence couple helping a ...

The Jaffe Briefing - November 14, 2018

WAYNE - There are many stupid reasons to drive drunk. But, a 57-year-old West Milford man came up with a real doozy, telling cops he drank too much and rear-ended another car Sunday night "because the Jets suck!" Apparently, this driver guzzled way too much whiskey, after suffering through his team's humiliating loss, 41-10, ...

You can take home a full roller coaster for $499,000 or a family swing ...

The Jaffe Briefing - November 12, 2018

STATEWIDE - Imagine real funding for the Gateway Tunnel, for our weary commuters. Or restoration of the full federal tax deduction on state and local taxes, for our weary wallets. Or a ban on oil drilling off our treasured shore. All these things could very well happen, NJ.com reports, with the Democrats taking control of the House in January. Jersey will once again have some ...

The Jaffe Briefing - November 9, 2018

NOT IN NJ - Chris Christie for Attorney General? There was a time, not too long ago, that idea would make people spray mouthfuls of coffee all over their computers. But, these are even stranger times with New Jersey being the West Wing's whipping boy. So, the fact that Christie is on the short list for the top attorney in the land? Yeah, why not. Perhaps, if he gets the gig, Christie may ...
