A six man crew from Decatur Utilities headed up there this week, but Derrick Moore, one of the Decatur workers, said they were told by crews in New Jersey that they can't do any work there since they're not union employees.

I am renting planes to fly to Kabul where if even your light bulb goes out a private contractor from Haliburton will have it fixed by lunchtime. O will send you a private note apologizing for the fact that the bulb blew out in the first place. Just get over to Newark (it's not called liberty in my book), a better life awaits. They even let you kill our troops for sport.
BTW, Is Sandy Bush's fault? just curious.
