This week the Carnival of Bloggers is back at Enlighten NJ.
I've seen first-hand what Mercer County Community College does with entertaining expenses, specifically at the Conference Center. It's lavish- over the top, really. School Pres. Robert Rose is well-liked with some at the school but this is his second big scandal since taking office; it looks like it's time to go.
Tom Hester Jr. at the Trenton Times has a nice bit on the budget negotiations. State Sen. Kenny is right that this year's Assembly elections won't be decided on the amount of rebates. It'll be about who saved them, and property taxes in general. The final budget seems to be a good one, even if it has those ridiculous rebates and less given directly to public schools and municipalities than I'd like. (Those steel-cage matches would have made great television, though.)
I emailed the Corzine campaign folks again about non-working links on their web site. I'd like to get back to blogging about the gubernatorial race, so I've been surfing their site and found a bunch that aren't working. Let's see if they can get it all running.
And yes, something DID happen on the Supreme Court while I was away! It's a sad day when we liberals are upset about losing a Reagan appointee, but here we are. A swing vote, a sometimes-moderate voice is lost. Roe v. Wade is over, you heard it hear first. (Ok, so I'm a little behind, so you heard it here seventeenth or eighteenth.) The speculation is already gettin' crazy about who will be nominated. Cross your fingers, close your eyes and wish really hard: "Not Gonzales. Not Gonzales. Not Gonzales..."
