Be sure to check out fellow Plainfield bloggers: Bernice notes ARRA money may go to 'finish' the 'unfinished' finished space in the former Teppers. Maria wonders if there is a lesson for a certain Plainfield someone in Specter's defection to the Democrats. Caciquism? That's a keeper. Olddoc is having Internet connections problems-- check back later. PEPtalk calls to nonwinners to help parents become winners. The Assemblyman has three posts and a whack -- a press release on swine flu, a note on city cleanups, and a response to Maria. As for the Mapp citation, since Green wasn't present in the courtroom, one wonders where he gets his info. Councilor Storch muses about the 'party of No!'. Councilor McWilliams invites participation in this year's Relay For Life.
