If the Arches were made into a park or a bike trail, it would be 1000x more incredible than the High Line.

I will tell you why I don't buy the term pedophilia, it is just to pigeon hole the sex abuse to one group. It is not. According to the John Jay report, 5% were under 10, the majority was teenage boys. If that is pedophilia then the late Harvey Milk practiced pedophilia because he teen lover was 16 years old. Several months ago, I read about a man who left prison and burglarized a home. He end up raping the homeowner, a female of 84 years. He was going to rape someone female and the age did not matter. I am sure if the victim was 12 female, the press would have labeled him pedophilia, too.


Get some help. I'm genuinely worried about you.

While people here talk about pedophilia priests, McCarrick known victims were 11, 16 and many were in their 20s, men in the seminary. I don't buy the concept of pedophilia but access to males in general. My contributions to the church probably helped pay for the $180,000 payout by the Archdiocese of Newark to one of McCarrick's victims. The Catholic Church is an institution but the nonsense has been going on in Hollywood according to former child actor Corey Feldman for a long time.


11 year-olds are kids. 16 year-olds are kids. The guy in the original story below was 10 at the time. He was a kid.

This priest in the Archdiocese of Newark was/is a monster and should suffer the consequences of his actions. Your contributions to the church undoubtedly were part of the McCarrick settlement payout. And you have every right to be angry as all get-out at the Archdiocese and the Vatican over how they've handled these types of cases here and around the world.

Yet instead, you're splitting hairs over how old a child can be for the abuse to be considered "pedophilia" vs "pederasty," which is inconsequential to the fact that either is illegal abuse of children. And you're pointing at Stalin, gay dudes from Colombia (It's Colombia, not Columbia, you know), Hollywood, etc., looking for anything to scapegoat other than the failings of the Archdiocese of Newark and other Catholic leadership. What a sad, sick display.

Maybe instead of looking for scapegoats you should think about accountability next time you toss your envelope into the collection plate.

The victim in the article was ten years old when the abuse began, because math.

I like the statue. I was upset when I heard it was going to be moved to the middle of Montgomery St. After all of the fracas, and the plan changed to move it to the foot of York St., I found that to be a good compromise.

The statue will have a nice prominent location and there will be a nice park at ExPl. Who can be upset about that?

There was an article about 15 years ago concerning a Newark hospital treating leprosy in the emergency room. It is also the reason why so many diseases that once was wiped out are now returning.


None of that has anything to do with Boonton Reservoir or safe drinking water in general.

Your post is akin to opposing a new parking lot in JC on the grounds that someone in Newark once got bit by a dog. It doesn't connect.

Renewable energy has nothing to do with protecting the public's drinking water. At the turn of the 20th century, people actually died from polluted public drinking water. As more people come here from different countries they also bring some of the diseases from their country. Some of these diseases are air borne other are water borne. We don't need to have our water exposed to humans period.


Post after post, you demonstrate that you have no idea what modern, 21st century water treatment is.

The water in the reservoir today is dirty. There's garbage that flows into it, there's fuel and chemical runoff (remember when you said renewable energy doesn't matter?), chemicals and pollutants absorbed from the air, there's human and animal feces in it, there's rotting flesh of dead animals and plants in it, there's microorganisms that are really nasty in it, algae, bacteria, fungi, viruses.

All of that is in the water now. Whether a jogger or hiker stops to pee in it, that would be the least of the nasty stuff in the reservoir.

Again, the water gets TREATED after it leaves the reservoir and before it comes to our homes. All of that nasty stuff, the garbage, the animal fluids, human fluids, microbes, etc., is killed and/or removed from the water. That makes the water safe to drink. The water is not sitting in the reservoir pure and clean. It's nasty until it's treated. And it's not treated until it leaves the reservoir.

Hopeful an ounce of this sinks in.

However, the prices are almost 4x's what you will pay in Shoprite for the exact same quality. Why? Because you're paying for the farm's liability insurance, which is exhorbitant for any 'pick your own' farm open to the public.

'Pick your own' blueberries at the farm - 10 pints for $70
ShopRite blueberries - 6 pints for $24


Those prices are crazy. We saw a farm out in Morris County with prices in that range and didn't go there. Emery's was much cheaper. $2 admission fee for adults, and then $3.99/lb.

Went to Emery’s Farm in New Egypt a couple weeks ago. Nice experience but it closes early (they make you leave the blueberry field by 4pm) and it’s getting late in the season by now. Hurry if there’s anything left.

The last round of cars worked out to, what, about $1.5M per car?
That was a decade ago. Since then, inflation, tariffs on many of the materials, and all of the gadgetry that make the cars operable with trackside PTC equipment have contributed to an increase in cost. Does all of that justify $1.3M increase in cost per car? Don't know.

No kidding. Try living in Hilltop, where Key Food is the closest thing that resembles a supermarket, and it's a 20-minute walk away, and CTown on Academy is about the same distance in the opposite direction.

That intersection has always been a dangerous mess. It’s much better now. P&K will continue to get foot traffic (perhaps more now) and if customers insist upon driving there, there’s a parking lot right behind their store.
