Corey Booker won the senate seat in N.J. I am glad he sure deserved this.He is for the people in his state all the way.
Going on 3 years ago I was In UMDNJ Hospital in Newark
during a HUGE Nor'Easter that dumped 2 feet of Snow
overnight, virtually crippling 3/4s of New Jersey.
It was very memorable... as the entire hospital staff
consisted solely of the over-nite skeleton crew who'd
been trapped in the Hospital with us .. for TWO DAYS!
(NO FOOD OR LINEN DELIVERIES, NO Fresh Produce and
NO HOT MEALS) ((having a banana At Every Meal was
essential to my diet as a Rx because I required a
steady diet of potassium, but couldn't tolerate it orally
or by injection)) ooooooooo... ickie...
hundreds of very sick peeps wallowing in dirty sheets
and hospital gowns... being served Cold Cereal (sans
Bananas =p ) and Tuna Fish Sandwiches.Why do I bring this up?
Well, we had NOTHING (not even therapy) to do for 2 days
but to Stare At the TV watching images of MAYOR BOOKER
Literally Shoveling Snow for his elderly neighbors...
...while NJ Governor Chris Cristie (and family) were
living-it-up @ Disney World, FLORIDA...
...uncomfortably reminiscent of the images of GDUBYA during "Katrina"
...anyway... it was a Herculean feat to clear that much
snow from a densely populated inner-city like Newark...
but once the Emergency Vehicles got dug out everything
eventually came back on line (much to the "RELIEF" of
of the over-worked hospital staff...)
...but like I said... Not Something I'll Soon Forget.
