Yeah, who does he think he is, Obama?


Slight difference between being a mayor of a mid-size city and holding a state-wide national office.

The issue isn't having further ambition. It's just that those with further ambition seldom make drastic changes for fear of it being used against them and makes it more likely the person does get involved in the muck because of the backing needed to get to the next level.

I'm not saying Steve would do that but it does happen.

In any event, the big difference I think between Steven and Carcetti is that Carcetti was never really an outsider.


Isn't the big difference that one is a fictional character?


A fictional character based on a real person. Replace the name Carcetti with O'Malley and the same discussion ensues.

It's still a relevant discussion about Fulop and is a concern that has been expressed before.

It was one of the knocks on Christie and has been said about Booker (who ran on a change platform but ended up retaining some people from the prior administration).

But if he is like Carcetti than there won't be any meaningful change since he'll be working on his governor's run in 2017 (which is already being pushed in a poll on the front page of politickernj).

Re: The Great Jersey City SOUP SWAP '07

The Soup Swap is being covered in the local press....

Sip a soup and schmooze Sunday at Barrow House
Friday, March 16, 2007
By COTTON DELO
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER
The abrupt return of winter weather this weekend may make it the perfect time for the citizenry of Downtown Jersey City to channel the spirit of the season over bowls of hot soup.

The Great Jersey City Soup Swap will be held Sunday at 3:30 p.m. at the Barrow Mansion, 83 Wayne St.

Participants are advised to brew up four quarts of their favorite soup - to be distributed to other chefs in individual one-quart containers - and can arrive at 3 p.m. for a meet and greet.

Participants should also bring at least one nonperishable item - such as canned goods, cereal, peanut butter or tuna fish - to be donated to the food pantry of St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church, which owns the Barrow Mansion next door.

The event is being organized by St. Matthew's parishioner Monyca White, 28, who read about soup swaps in Boston and Seattle and has promoted the gathering through the online forum Jersey City List (www.jclist.com).

White conceptualized the Soup Swap as a social networking event where attendees can sip wine and meet people in their neighborhood. No RSVP is required.

"I think the unfortunate thing about Jersey City is that so many of us work outside of Jersey City, so to some extent, you don't get to meet your neighbors," said White, who works as an attorney and has already brewed her batch of Thai green curry chicken soup for the occasion.

Though she claims to have no idea what the turnout will be, she plans to structure the swapping by having each participant pick a number and then take turns selecting a container of soup - or gumbo, chili, chowder or stew.

Even if someone draws a low number on their first try, that person is bound to draw high eventually and snag the most coveted concoctions.

"That's the excitement of it, if everyone's dying to try your soup," she said.

Re: Golden Cicada Help from ACLU

The Kelo decision isn't the problem. The Supreme Court simply applied fifty years of eminent domain precedent which permits government to use private land for a public benefit. It changed nothing. It just affirmed holdings that stated that increased tax revenue was sufficient public benefit so as to be permissible.

In the Golden Cicada instance, Healey backed down because he was going to lose in court and embarrass himself in the process. By forcing the sale of the land to SPP, the City would lose tax revenue, since parochial schools are exempt from property tax. It's a public detriment, not a public benefit.
