chicken egg whatever
NJ Assemblyman John S Wisniewki says:
"It is disconcerting to see so many New Jersey business and government professionals signing onto a plan that is still largely under construction.Oh, John. Next you'll be cautioning against comparing apples & oranges, reaching across party lines, making a difference, all while keeping your options open. Why don't you politicians use a copy of Bartlett's Quotations? I understand you're mostly lawyers now with undergrad degrees in Poli Sci or American Studies, academic departments attracting semi-literates who never crack a book that isn't an assignment. But you, John, majored in English at Rutgers. English majors are kids who fell asleep in high school because it took a month for the class to get through a Shakespeare play while we were reading the entire Star-Ledger with our Captain Crunch, knocking off 300 page lurid potboiler paperbacks over pizza & french fries at lunch, & typing no draft book reports during TV commercials (one draft if we wanted a guaranteed A). We love cliches. Can't you invert two other things? Just put the turkey inside the stuffing. It's easy. With a little more effort you could even plagiarize a British politician.
"Potential supporters should reserve judgment until the full plan, in all of its minutiae, is unveiled.
"Anything else is simply putting the cart before the horse."

I know you're a lawyer, Carrie, but you can also pronounce Israel Kamakawiwoʻole & whistle Frank Sinatra's entire Capitol Record catalogue from memory.Post a Comment
