Following the second meeting of New Jersey’s Legislative Gaming Summit today, Assemblywoman Connie Wagner, who participated in the summit, questioned the logic behind the decision to close the Meadowlands race track on NFL game days. “The whole point of this summit is to think outside the box to generate ways to revitalize the state’s entertainment and gaming industries. When I see signs advertising that the Meadowlands will be closed Sunday and Monday due to NFL football, it just blows my mind.
Education reform legislation Assembly members Mila Jasey, Joan Voss and Paul Moriarty sponsored to create a permanent public school choice program to allow parents to move their children to schools located across district lines was signed into law on Friday.

Gen. David Petraeus is so concerned about the safety of our men and women in battle that he has publicly warned against a Florida pastor's plan to burn copies of the Quran on Saturday, the ninth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on America.
Shhhhhhh, we're told. Don't protest the Ground Zero mosque. Don't burn a Koran. It'll imperil the troops. It'll inflame tensions. The "Muslim world" will "explode" if it does not get its way, warns sharia-peddling imam Feisal Abdul Rauf. Pardon my national security-threatening impudence, but when is the "Muslim world" not ready to "explode"?
