Last week, Politico New Jersey reported that the proposed cannabis legalization bill that has the the support of a majority of New Jersey residents is unlikely to be passed during this legislative session.

Foxes Herald Nature’s Resurgence in Suburban New Jersey

For most of my life the only time I saw a red fox it was probably a raccoon. They have those same glow-in-the-headlights silvery eyes.

But a few years ago, I began to see a once-rare piece of roadkill with greater frequency. No matter how flattened the rest of the fox was, it’s bushy-tail would blow around in the highway draft of cars and trucks as they raced past.

"Game of Thrones" Delivers Promise of Fire and Blood as Last War Begins

It took four weeks, but it finally hit me during Sunday’s traumatic episode that the greatest television series that ever was or will be is not only coming to an end, but an inevitably tragic one.
