Last week, students were shouting “Get your hate off MSU” after evangelicals from Open Air Outreach came to reach some “lost souls” by shouting incendiary comments…

To kill a baby is murder. If you love porn, you need to be reborn. If you enjoy getting naked with someone else before marriage or look at a woman with lust, you will be thrown in a lake of fire.

Putting Our Hands Together For Pandan

Monday, Apr 30, 2007 12:59pm  |  COMMENTS (13)

Bloomfield’s Pandan joins the list of Baristanet-approved, New York Times-reviewed restaurants.
Says David Corcoran from the New York Times

The menu is long, and the prices are so gentle you’ll want to come with a group and execute a full-gainer dive into the menu section headed “Pandan’s Specials.” You’ll note that two words figure prominently: grilled and pork. There’s pork steak, grilled pork belly, grilled pork chop, grilled spareribs and pork barbecue.
I loved them all.

Us too, David — back when we wrote about Pandan here. Pandan is in good company, joining Culinariane, Passionne and Table 8 as restaurants discovered here. Check out our latest hot find on Food.

Can you put up a post soliciting people’s FEMA experiences? This could be extremely helpful.

Corzine: Governor At Large

Monday, Apr 30, 2007 8:58am  |  COMMENTS (2)

Recuperation can’t be easy for Corzine, who is under more scrutiny than ever. Besides being accused of jeopardizing the lives of others during his high-speed trip to meet Imus, Corzine’s clock is being watched too, with a detailed look at how much time he spends away from NJ. From the New York Times

In the 450 days between his inauguration and his accident, Mr. Corzine notified Mr. Codey that he would be away for all or part of 111 days, and would sleep out of state on 77 nights, according to letters from Mr. Corzine’s chief of staff, Tom Shea, recording the transfer of power.

Between his 14 months filling in after McGreevey and his time subbing for Corzine, could Codey log in more time as governor than Corzine?

So maybe it wasn’t Dorothy Parker and Harold Ross, but that was certainly the idea at the Montclair Public Library last night, where the stars were local literati. Thirty-two ink-stained wretches (including yours truly) were the draw for a $250-a-plate Friends of the Library fundraiser. Dress was “festive” — Bobbi Brown traded her usual blue jeans for a bright blue dress and Mayor Remsen wore a Hawaiin shirt. The evening’s big draw, Amy Sedaris of “Strangers With Candy” fame, who came out from Manhattan, graciously hung around well after the coffee-and-cupcakes portion of the event, signing books and smiling at her admirers.

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
