Jersey Gets Smarter

The state of New Jersey has taken steps to improve its reputation- by removing a line from its constitution which states that “no idiot or insane person” has the right to vote. It’s a step in the right direction, as it’s nice to see a state, in 2007, amending its constitution for a reason that has nothing to do with same-sex marriage.
This reminds me of something funny that happened when I went to the Devils-Flyers game at the Meadowlands a few weeks ago. They did that thing on the scoreboard where they show a fan of the home team (so everyone cheers), followed by a fan of the road team (so everyone boos.) It kept going back and forth like that, until the scoreboard showed an image of downtown Philadelphia (booo), followed by a lovely postcard-like shot of the Jersey Shore (cheer).
“Whaddya know,” I said. “They picked the one pretty part of New Jersey.”

    Stop the crack head comments now that you are a full time PA resident. You know full well that besides the Jersey Shore there are other picturesque areas of NJ.

    and I know I’m not the first to make the joke that if every idiot and insane person were disenfranchised in NJ, no one would ever vote in NJ.
