From Hoofin’s Mailbag:

Q: How do you square your criticism of the “Jersey W.T” driver with the actions of ex-Senator Torricelli?

I really want to say “no comment”, because I happen to be a fan of Torricelli’s (maybe one of the unspecified number around the state who would admit it!). But point well taken, that the lie seems to be a central part of the screw-around Jersey driver’s existence. It ain’t just the bad behavior, it’s the lies and self-justifications that go with the bad actions. That can be its own essay.

Q: How much did you used to weigh, before you started walking?

Suffice it to say, I am about 40 pounds lighter than I was about 10 years ago. I have managed to lose and keep that off, and pretty much eat whatever I like.



Q: Won’t you come back and post on the Bridgewater Board?

Sorry to disappoint. I have been doing some posting on Somerville, and a bit on Somerset County. But there are two individuals who also post, that I really don’t want anything to do with. (At the disrespect of having to repeat myself . . . )

What I’ve discovered is that, they’re nowhere around under an identifiable screen name, until I start posting. Then, abracadabra, they just happen to want to post, too!

I have plenty of comeraderie and/or debate opportunities in my private life, without having to seek it out over the internet. I also come in contact with my share of insult artists, and don’t need to (“tee hee”), start engaging other known ones out there with “too much time on their hands” . . .
