Free parking? Only in Monopoly

When I went to do some shopping at The Walk earlier this month, (or rather to watch my wife and daughter shop,) I was happy to see that the new parking garage looked nearly ready to open. To me, the limited supply of public parking has always been the missing piece in an otherwise great idea.

Vote for an adult

If you were picking a team of economic experts, I’d be the last one left standing against the wall. Junior high all over again.

Evacuate and see

Fortunately for us all, Hurricane Irene had some of the fight taken out of her before she got to New Jersey on Sunday. Thanks, North Carolina.

I was struck by the potatoes. More specifically, the French fries.

Post impressions

I was up at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City recently, a great place to spend a rainy Saturday.

Ask not for whom the toll. It's for me

A friend of mine recently noted that the major roadways around here, the ones that are supposed to help you travel faster, seem to have become the slowest routes.
