It's about time. Finally.

I feel safer knowing that we now acknowlege that military members have the same level of acceptance and behavior as the rest of us.

The end of Don't Ask, Don't tell.

NJ Bike Exchange

Have a used bike cluttering up your garage? Or need a bike for yourself? I just found out about this program. It's a great idea.

The Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange accepts donated used bikes which are re-conditioned by volunteers and sold. Profits go to the Trenton Boys & Girls Club's after school programs.

Places to donate your bike can be found here.

The Exchange is located at 1500 N. Olden Ave, Ewing NJ. They're open Saturdays 10-5, and Thursdays 5-8. They say you can ride the bikes to try them out before purchase, too.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Ride, all for charity. What's not to love?

Better than I could've said it: Jennifer Beck flip-flops edition

Jay Lassiter on State Senator Jennifer Beck's sudden change of heart regarding Marriage Equality:

New Jersey's new map added Asbury Park and Ocean grove to her district, transforming it overnight into (arguabley) the gayest district in New Jersey.

So, Beck's track record on equality: vote against Gay people when it matters (or when it suits her politically) but now that she wants to represent the gayest district in NJ, a sudden conversion. Go figure.

Ah, a fair weather friend. Just what everyone needs. Here in the former 12th, I say: good riddance, Senator Beck. And good luck to the folks in her new district. You're going to need it.

Memorial Day 2011

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” — George S. Patton

From the Times of Trenton:

On this Memorial Day, it is fitting to call the roll of the 145 service members
and two civilians with ties to New Jersey and Bucks County, Pa., who have died
in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We give thianks that such people lived, and remember them this Memorial Day.

Embracing the sun

Cranbury Warehouse to Bask in the Sun:

Tim Connolly, senior vice president of operations:

"We are continuously looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly throughout our everyday operations,” he said. “We anticipate that the solar installation will supply up to 90 percent of our overall electric needs at our Cranbury distribution center.”
Sudler Real Estate’s CEO Peter Sudler also said he is looking forward to
the array's installation.
“We have great confidence that the solar facility will represent a 'win-win-win' for all three companies, not to mention the positive impact on the environment and the state of New Jersey," he said.
In addition to those sentiments, KDC Solar’s Alan Epstein mentioned a more human element to the work his company does.
“This work keeps jobs in New Jersey and attracts jobs to New Jersey,” he said.

Green jobs? Go solar!
