  1. Look how cute that shopping area is. I hope we don’t wind up with big honkin’ 10 story apartment building with 6 story parking deck next to it.

  2. Okay, so we are looking for a “white male with glasses, at least 5′-7″, aged 25 to 50.” Reasonably specific. So, what’s “covering his face from the nose down”? In Short Hills, perhaps a hypoallergenic skin toner. In Kabul, perhaps a Burka, (if he’s a cross dresser). This could take a while.

  3. I may be wrong, but the fire department is always open with our bravest sanding on the sidewalk at the ready – not to mention the overnight patrol cars parked on valley between Lorraine and Bellevue. No one heard or saw anything? [inside job]

  4. No the Fireman are not always standing on the sidewalk at the ready. Generally on a nice day you’ll find them doing that in the daytime but at night they are inside the firehouse.
