A beautiful fall afternoon becomes ...

Why Care About Politics in Piscataway NJ? Or, Middle American Blues

September 9, 2019

I’ve been to two town council meetings this summer that were so disheartening I had to explain—to myself—why I bothered going.  Typically, very few residents go to these meetings and it’s no mystery why.  Everything is decided beforehand between the seven Council members and the Mayor’s administration. There’s no debate, items on the agenda are rarely ...

Seton Hall University Begins Academic Year with First-Day Furry Friends

To the Editor:

Re: “Seton Hall University Begins Academic Year with First-Day Furry Friends

Animals enrich our lives, of that there is no doubt.  But animals should not be subjected to streams of groping hands and constant handling so students can be distracted from their studies and stress for a few minutes.

The bunnies, chicks, goats, sheep, cow and other animals used ...

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 ...

Don't Leave Home Without It

I need to replace my wallet.

More accurately, it is a billfold, a name which blandly describes what it does. After years of riding in a dark pocket compressed mercilessly by 200 plus pounds of backside and being opened and closed many times a day, the poor thing has gotten kind of shabby.

It is worn and faded, just waiting to be torn at its flimsy perforation into two foldless bills.

My ...
