Reporter Jim Hague must have been walking with Mayor Sacco during Rothman's short whistlestop. The mayor quickly introduced our Rep. and uttered as he departed "I'll be somewhere in the building if needed." Jim neglected to mention that slight, and greatly exaggerated the speaking out of turn. The asides, Jim could have reported, reflected the frustration those in attendance exuded from inability to vent the local displeasures that lacked recognition, for so long. One reason for my starting to submit articles to the NB. Reporter is the daily encounters with Hudson County residents who so obviously are ignorant of the fact that the media is fully controlled by about six corporational monopolies that have vested interests in the promotion of predominantly Republican viewpoints. Compassionate conservatives, deeply invested in munitions and energy who seek invisible demons in every corner of the earth and create more, if gun sales decrease. Their compassion extends solely to their immediate circles none of whoever went hungry. They thrive on innocent human fodder to revenge themselves of past self-made failures and haven't hesitated to control the media that only lies or tells misleading half-truths. I feel the duty to present current events, other than printed in local newspapers through shallow tabloids (most dealing with trivia and proven by the over-coverage of the governor's sexual appetites instead of incisive delving into the smoke-filled room, corruption.) Jim's coverage reflected business-as-usual - don't make any enemies.
Actually Rep. Rothman was very eager to get to Edgewater. His constant referral to how guilty he felt that he wasn't able to spend more time in North Bergen gave proof, in that admission, that explained why he didn't dwell on my main concern. I wanted to know why the cultural center of the world NYC with its five boroughs that dwarf Hudson County can so effectively run with one mayor and we need a dozen. He didn't seem to appreciate that one, since it didn't deserve as much consideration as the fact that McGreevey was gay, or the Cliffs of the Palisades would produce more ratables. A regionalizing of Hudson County mayors would go a long way to lower home owners taxes and with similar approaches might be cut to a few hundred dollars, each owner.
He, Rep. Rothman, had no knowledge of the lavish plans for another golfing country club, or college campus style N.B. High School, like the present horizontally spread insult at 76th Street that quickly ran out of student space. The knowledge, expressed by our local politicos that real estate was scarce and unaffordably expensive, never suggests to them to look at the thriving metropolis just across the Hudson and discover that you want to think vertically. Their skyscrapers one day might eliminate the need of space ships to visit the moon.
One of the Rothman party reminded us of how many town hall meetings they endowed their constituents with, how he deserved great praise. Well, if attending was praiseworthy I'll be first on line. I vow that he was there because I also attended and even graced your N.B. Reporter, page 18. For anyone hungering as to how I look, that rear view of a baldy headed culprit is me. I assure you the rear view is my best side minus haircut.
