Didn't know I was gone, didja? GA just returned from 2 weeks in Massachusetts.
Such is the blessing and the curse of WiFi in lovely, pastoral settings like the Berkshires: the horrors of Hoboken are only a tap-tap-tap away. One can dabble in a little ethnic cleansing in the morning and hike the Appalachian trail in the afternoon, report the harassment of an HHA tenant activist then go horseback riding, blog about alleged HPD collusion with pro-Vision 20/20 forces, then pick wildflowers.

This dichotomy reflects our unusual summer.
Secret tapes! Transcripts! Ethnic cleansing! Betrayals! Lawsuits! Vendettas!
None of this theater is odd for Hoboken politics, but it is for August, typically the one month it's safe for political bloggers to vacation. Scratch that off the list!
