..as the armpit of our Nation. I'm too lazy to link the stories, because I'm Jersey. And lazy. Except for this one from Sour Plum~

* 3 people were pulled from the river 5 blocks from my home. It was all over the news tonight. I heard choppers hovering this afternoon & had no idea why, until I investigated why. We were raised on the Jersey Shore knowing all of her dangers by osmosis. You NEVER trust salt water ice, ever. The current still runs & the tides still go in & out. Super Fail. Everyone is all right.

* Daddy leaves his 4 & 2 year old children in a running car. The 4 year old decides to drive in reverse straight in to a brick wall. No one injured, thank gawd.

There are more, but you get my gist.
