Paula at Pier A
Look who NJ Governor Christie sent to represent him at yesterday's 9-11 service at Pier A... our gal, NJ Attorney General Paula Dow.
Paula's got a lot of fans here in Hoboken.
In fact, we've been waiting for the Big Sweep; the day Federal agents raid the Mile Square, handcuffing our rubbish then stuffing it into their SUVs for the drive to Newark; rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat, until our city's left broom-clean and sparkling.
On that day, perhaps we'll see Paula standing beside our Mayor on the steps of Hoboken City Hall answering questions from the press.
But not on 9-11.
Yesterday Dow was at the Mayor's side not for cleansing crime but cleansing souls. She came to pray with us: for the victims of 9-11, for Hoboken's lost 57, for the brokenhearted.
Witnesses say she and the Mayor seemed to enjoy a cordial relationship. Quite.
It will be a different kind of day altogether when the NJ Attorney General returns to Hoboken. With her broom.
I've heard from a couple of sources this day's coming "soon".
One says "about a month."
I know, I know. But GA's Magic 8-Ball is at the repair shop, so I've got to rely on my sources.
