My daughter is a sophomore at McNair. I can't speak too much to Saint Peter's, but my general take is that McNair has a good group of academically motivated students who also have a lot of other interests. McNair has a junior ROTC program, if your child wants to do the regimental thing. They also have sports, a glee club, anime club, band, academic clubs, and so on.

If your child has a lot of individual interests, McNair has a lot to offer. The student body is also very, very diverse. All of my daughter's friends are intelligent, motivated, and interesting individuals.

My daughter applied to public schools and Catholic schools, and she got into all of them. She bristled a bit at the parochial aspect when she did the tours. If it is the first time going to a Catholic school, I think it can be a bit of a shock.

Landfill burned for 30 years

Friday, January 18, 2008

The PJP Landfill site has been a source of controversy for years.

It had been used as a dump since the days trash was transported by horse and wagon, longtime residents said in 1985 when a cleanup was getting under way. The PJP designation came from the PJP Sanitary Landfill Co., which leased the property from 1968 to 1974 and engaged in the disposal of solid waste.

Officials at the time said the fire that burned under the landfill was ignited by volatile solvents and hazardous chemicals that seeped into the earth. Longtime residents said it had been going on for 30 years, from roughly 1956 to 1986, when the state DEP spent $19 million to douse the flames and excavate and remove the more than 5,000 barrels of toxic materials.

Residents said at the time it wasn't until around 1984 that the smoke and fumes made their way to the surface.


It's a metaphor for Jersey City.

Okay, but that is just upgrades and maintenance that the current owner does not want to pay for, it is not "blighted."

The B&GC is certainly making a great move here--without a good tenant, they certainly can't pay for maintenance on an older structure, so it is fortuitous that the developers have been so kind to put this deal together for them. Doesn't hurt that this would then free up the Canal Street "eyesore" to be demolished so that another high-density residence structure can be constructed.

I would gladly ship any one of a dozen cookie-cutter high rises uptown in exchange for having the Loews downtown. Any day of the week. You can have the Trump building AND that hideous Soviet-era monstrosity, Grove Pointe, in exchange for the Loews.

As for the Boys and Girls Club building being a blighted structure? Are you serious?

It may not be as nice as the renovated The Rocket on Newark, but it is a functioning building that for many years housed a popular school (until they had to expand). Blighted? Hardly.

Now it will be torn down, and in its place will be Gulls Cove II: The Reckoning. Will anyone be happier?

I think it is ethical to eat animals, especially if there is a slight chance that you might get eaten as well. I swim and take long walks in the woods, so I am fair game, even if a bit unsavory.

In the case religious beliefs, by definition yes, of course it’s irrational behavior. I wouldn’t pass judgment on irrationality itself though—it is an inseparable and valuable component of human behavior—but its manifestation can sometimes be quite amusing when observed in the context of a different world view. I do not adhere to religious laws of any kind, which provides me with a different world view, and I wouldn’t be the first person to notice actions in the name of religion can be rather inconsistent if not quizzical at times. Whether the behavior is right or wrong isn’t the argument I’m making, I’m just taking the opportunity to throw sarcasm around.

Now in the case of those who protest rennet for “ethical reasons” but consume cheese, that’s just a profoundly silly gesture.


Since Asif already made a in this thread comment about eating kosher, then this post of yours that followed is pretty much belittling his religious inclinations, not "throwing sarcasm around."

Unless you abstain from dairy products altogether, the source of cheese-making enzymes should only be important if you care more about precious arbitrary values than the lives of animals. It’s a wildly disproportionate concern. In this case, the unpleasant reality of milk production is the five-hundred pound gorilla in the room, not a milliliter of rennet.


I am not a big fan of religions in general, but I tend not to mock or deride their adherents' personal practices. I can easily see how Asif sees your comment as just that.

So, basically, people who don't want to eat rennet out of some religious dietary law are irrational, and people who don't want to eat it out of an ethical concern are hypocritical, because the bigger and more serious issue is the dairy industry at large.

Someone should do a flow chart.

But I am still fuzzy on what the dispute here is. Is Frank upset because Asif's desire to avoid rennet isn't valid enough for him? Does he want Asif to get on the bigger bandwagon for animal rights by boycotting the entire dairy industry? Or is he just pooh-poohing his personal decision to avoid rennet as irrational, and therefore worthy of derision?

So, wait--is this a religious vs. animal rights issue here? Or are we witnessing a battle between two different level of concerns for animals--one boycotting the products of slaughter and one arguing for a concern for the total life experience of dairy animals?

A search for the term "rennet boycott" pops this thread first in teh Goggle. Good work!

For example, this site lists maltodextrin in their ingredients that OFTEN contain or produce processed free glutamic acid:

http://www.truthinlabeling.org/hiddensources.html

But it says nothing of the amount, and the net they have cast seems to be pretty wide. What I have read is that some glutamic acid made be present as a result of processing, but if it is there at all, that amount is fairly small, just a trace, as the protein content is low.

Still, that said, I try to avoid any foods that have processed ingredients.
