Interesting comment

I think this comment deserves it's own post:
The Big Professor 7:57 pm

You people amaze me. You ridicule Senator Lynch and vilify him. For your information, Senator Lynch is the best legislator to have served this state.

The Lynches, père et fils, have contributed greatly to the city they call home, New Brunswick, and to Middlesex County in toto. New Brunswick is a city on the move. A visit here will show new buildings under construction. Indeed, the State of New Jersey is a better place for their having served. It is why there is a bridge named in the elder John Lynch's honor.

Monmouth County's petty tyrants would receive an education observing the statesmen we are honored to have here in Middlesex County.

Many gloat over the unfortunate circumstance of the younger Lynch being investigated by Bush's Federal Bureau of Investigation. This is a politically motivated vendetta. John Lynch will be vindicated, and one day will return to public office. How fortuitous for our state if one day there is a Governor John Lynch!

Certainly you will delete this comment. So be it!

What do you say, Monmouth County -- do we want to be Middlesex?

On an unrelated note, a big thanks to Keyport Councilman Joe Weddick for pointing out that it is in fact 2006 and not 2005, despite what The Courier's website indexes listed. I credit my critical thinking skills for the time travel experiment.

Dear Professor:

If Mr. Lynch likes New Brunswick so much...why don't he stay home more often?

I notice he hasn't given Mr. Morris carte blanche to bowl over New Brunswick or Highland Park (not that he hasn't tried there). Of course he has let him loose in Piscataway. Helen Merrolla isn't a big fan. I wonder what Jimmy Polos thinks?

Mr. Lynch made a lot of money in politics. He did some good, in Middlesex County, and I think he's trying to use my county as a waste basket for his political and campaign debts. Of course, I could be wrong, I just don't think I am.

By the way, how DOES that punch taste afterward?

Big Professor loses a ton of credibility for suggesting that Chris Christie is conducting his office in a partison manner.

Do we want to be Middlesex? Hell, we have enough traffic already.

Let's see...Brookdale or Middlesex CC? Monmouth U or Rutgers? Downtown Red Bank or Downtown New Brunswick? Menlo Park Mall or Monmouth? Woodbridge Mall or Freehold Mall? Union Beach or Laurence Harbor...ok we have to give Middlesex one...sorry Jim :-)

I see the "Big Professor" has left his(?) droppings on your blog, too. I do not want Monmouth to be Middlesex. I do not want Monmouth to be Union. I have said before that I do not want Lynch's money coming into Monmouth County, to either party. I also object to Norcross attempting to foist his influence here. Or Lesniak. Or Cryan. Or Roberts.

Both parties should raise their funds here, and not be selling out to outside political forces.

I go to Middlesex quite often. And, I hate making that trip all the time. sprawl is a problem all over this state, but try traveling down Texas Rd in Old Bridge and Monroe -- what a pit.

Outside a few blocks that have over priced and over crowded bars. New Brunswick is a hole in the Earth.

And, should you really be that proud to work for a university that has its own strain of Herpes?

I hated the New Brunswick Campus of Rutgers, so much I commuted to Newark instead.

Besides I thought you wer going to concern yourself with the New York Times and leave us lowly tabloid readers/writers alone.

We don't want Lynch in Middlesex any more than you want him in Monmouth. Many of us here wish we had a party leader like Victor Scudiery instead of Lynch. Lynch and his unholy alliance of developers have intervened in the political landscape of every town pushing their corrupt redevelopment agenda. I hope the FBI finds every wrongdoing he ever committed and sends him where he really belongs--to jail.

Let's hear an "Amen" for Laurel!

Shameless plug:

My blog "The Bayshore: Off the Record" has once again received a little revamp. Active posting will occur there again.
