May Day. Holocaust Remembrance Day. "Mission Accomplished" Day. Yet, May 1 took me by surprise. I couldn't figure out why until I looked closely at the Weird New Jersey Calendar on the wall & realized it has an April 31. All month long I've been glancing at it without noticing the numbers, & thinking the last day of April is today. There's even a weird event for the date: "Hunterdon County Courthouse employees claim ghost of Bruno Hauptmann
is switching the lights on and off, 2006." That must have been some spooky day in Flemington NJ, since it didn't exist anywhere else. Turn the page & there's May 1 on Thursday: "New issue of Weird NJ."
