What's Hangin' on the Vine?

GA was mighty pleased to get a shout-out on Hudson County's best new political web site, Hangin' on The Vine.   Thank you, mystery-person.

Yep, HTV serves great dish from all over the County, and comes out every Monday. Here's an  excerpt from today's:

Yeah, you've got that right, mystery-person.  We've got 4 pots on Hoboken's City Council calling the kettle 'black'.

And if you need to borrow a quarter, you're 5 years too late-- Castellano could have directed you to 4 million of them before she "cleared it all up! 

Mo DeGennaro: I's like to ask you a question about the statement you made, Mr. Russo about the million dollars. Is there a million dollars missing or is it there was a mistake, did they find it or WHAT on the parking...

Castellano: Mr. Russo?

Russo:  Thank you Council President. Mo, the REASON why I thought money was missing was because I was going on past year's uh anticipated revenues from the Parking Utility from the meters. Uh, it turned out that the meters did not generate as much money as they did in years past, so it was MY mistake to think that money was THERE when in fact it was not. That was, that was the situation.

Castellano: It's been cleared up.

DeGennaro: Because that was some statement to make! I think it's made everybody...

Russo: Well it wasn't it wasn't a statement, Mo. It was a question to Mr. Englund during our budget process to clarify if I was right or wrong. AND I came back and said I was wrong.

Castellano: It's been, it's been cleared up.

DeGennaro: I just wanted to make sure...
Castellano: It's been cleared up.
Finally,  a bit of comic irony.

Today GA got notice in both Hudson County's best new political web site and on Hudson County's worst, least-trafficked, most-discredited web sewer, Hoboken411. Here is what that nitwit said:
 " ...anyone else find it ironic that Bhalla is claiming defamation when the Zimmer Administration attempts to smear anyone who dares to speak out against it? Two years ago, Bhalla defended Zoning Board member Pincus’ right to say that she wanted to shoot down the front doors to people’s homes."
I must be doing something right.

Folks, do check what's hangin' on the vine, and ignore Klausssen's sour grapes.   He's just jealous.


  1. You're like a good rare wine -- getting better with age. Now that GA and MSV have a new colleague in their midst, the reporting of what's happening in Hudson and Hoboken will be even better. This is certainly a triumphal trifecta.

    1. Thanks, Anon. When I have my 1,000,000th page view party (coming up), you're invited.

      Agree, HTV is a great addition to our local blogosphere.

  2. Yep, I keep hearing rumblings that the Disreporter isn't doing so well. Anyone with a pea brain could figure out that by just looking at how tiny the paper has gotten. It used to be 50-60 pages chock full of advertising. Look a it now - twenty pages? Even the amount of real estate adds are way off. Not sure how they can survive. And I doubt that too many people would sit shiva if it dies. But then again, they always have the Mason checkbook to try and cove up the gray pall of the grim reaper. BTW, it is not just the Disreporter, I remember when the Star Ledger Real Estate Section on Sunday was HUGE. It is now a mere shadow if itself and the revenue has evaporated. Print media, unless it becomes intertwined with social media is doomed. I don't see the Disreporter changing anything too soon as the idiots that run the place think that publishing once a week (and only occasionally updating the website during the week) is a business plan for the future.
