Cartoon: Bruce Springsteen Named as "The Other Man"

He may be The Boss, but according to a Red Bank man's divorce papers, Bruce Springsteen is also a home wrecker.

Businessman Arthur J. Kelly named the Jersey rock 'n' roller as the reason for the breakup of his 17-year marriage to Ann C. Kelly, according to the Star-Ledger.

"Patti and I have been together for 18 years -- the best 18 years of my life," Springsteen posted on his website, "We have built a beautiful family we love and want to protect and our commitment to one another remains as strong as the day we were married."

Here a link to the divorce paper.

I just wonder if Obama feels betrayed.

New Jersey Cartoon: Illegal Immigrants at Rutgers?

I know most of you will disagree with me about the recommendations from Corzine's Blue Ribbon Panel on Immigrant Policy report which recommends, among other things, allowing in-state tuition rates for foreign-born New Jersey students.

That's okay. Just think of me as Ned Flanders.

I just think it's a much more complicated issue than simply "send them home."

The Star-Ledger had an excellent editorial on the subject, which drew out the anger of many readers. Among what they said:

"We may call them law-breakers. We may demand they go home and reenter the country "the right way." We rage on internet sites about how much money they're costing us "real Americans." We demand that our politicians -- the same ones without the guts to design an effective immigration policy -- "enforce the laws on the books." Maybe that makes us feel better, but it doesn't solve the problem. Outrage isn't a policy."
