I wasn't' too far from you. Live in White not too fare from where Lamanaco lived off Buckley Ave. The search teams walked our property that night - really spooked the wife as I was on midnight shift.
What's the thought with how Christie is battling the NJ tax/budget boil? He'll have tough go of it, especially laying off 2,000 long term state employees. If only the first Christie (Whitman) hadn't pulled that bond stunt, we wouldn't be so far down the tube on the pension deficit end of this mess. Don't get me wrong, there's a whole lot of past perps that had the Gov title who also had a hand in it but she was the worst and the press let her go with it.
