Re: Trump: 'Thousands' in Jersey City cheered on 9/11

Someone needs to make a map of all the alleged celebrations sites. I've heard there were celebrations at Dickinson, at that mosque on Westside and Sip, on 440, by the waterfront, in Journal Square, etc... If you put them all together, it sounds like Jersey City was one huge celebration that day.

Sell it to whom? The desk itself should be a museum object. If nothing else, it could be exhibited within city hall, accompanied by an informative label. (And that still from Boardwalk Empire.)


Sell it to the highest bidder. If said bidder wishes to donate it in such a way so it can be on public display, so be it.

I don't think we should have nostalgia for a corrupt past.


But those who forget the past are destined to repeat it.


There's a difference between remembering the past and fetishisizing it. I don't like the idea that it is still being used today, like it's some sort of quaint joke.

The Frank Hague Desk
#5

As linked in another thread, on last night's Rachel Maddow show, the host took a segment to talk about the Jersey City mayoral election and the removal of Healy, or "The Naked Mayor", as she called him, from office.

She introduced Jersey City politics by talking about the fabled Hague Desk at City Hall. This is the supposed desk used by famed crook Frank Hague during his dictatorial reign as mayor of the city. It has a specially-designed featured, a draw which opens to both the front and back, so a guest could conveniently deposit cash for bribes, kickbacks and whatnot.

I've heard of this desk before. Is it true that such a desk existed and does it actually still reside in city hall?

If it does, would you not agree that it is high time for it to be removed? Why continue to memorialize the corruption that has plagued Jersey City seemingly forever? We should not be nostalgic for lawbreakers who abused the office and the public trust.

It would be a symbolic gesture, for sure, but an important one. Jersey City should no longer be the city of Frank Hague. It should be the city of the future.

No, this is good. National coverage is good for Jersey City and a spotlight on the city's politics would help. You can't eliminate malfeasance if no one cares.

Tommy Carcetti is partly based on Martin O'Malley, who is the current governor of Maryland. There is also some talk about higher aspirations.

Indoor soccer at Boys & Girls Cub

I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on the ZogSports indoor soccer league at the Boys & Girls Club. Specifically, I'm looking into playing in the Sunday league in either the casual or extremely casual league. I'm no great athlete, I just want to have some fun. Any experience out there?

Do they have TVs? I was planning to go early Sunday, but with the US in the Confederation Cup finals, I need to check that out, too.

This is terrific news. I'm Prep class of '97 and haven't been more embarrassed. If I still lived in Jersey City, I'd would have actively helped the Cicada. What a disaster.
