    Lol he sure doesn't watch leno or obrien. Maybe he heard about Atlantic City and the casinos and assumes the whole state is like that.

    Actually there are areas of north central jersey which are some of the richest in the country, with estates and horse farms.

    The area which get lampoon'd is about 20 miles long by 10 miles wide. The worst is right by the airport and is only about 2 miles by 2 miles.

    America's Most Expensive ZIP Codes - Forbes.com

    But in 2009, even in these exclusive enclaves, home prices took major hits. Though Alpine, N.J. (07620) tops our list with a median asking price of $4.14 million.

    NJ has good and bad areas. Essex county (Newark, East Orange, Irvington) is one of the worst, but it also has Short Hills which is a wealthy and expensive area to live in.

    I think he needs to watch Real Housewives of New Jersey and Jersey Shore. If he thinks Jersey women are push-overs then he's sadly mistaken. The only thing they push over are dinner tables.

    North Jersey is not like South Jersey. Northwestern New Jersey is quite pretty as are the pine barrens in the south. The rest needs help. Yes it may be pricey but then there are $750,000 houses on tiny lots, with 2 bedrooms, and less than 20 ft from a six lane highway with no walls or fences. Northeastern Jersey is very, very crowded and many (though certainly not all) residents lack what others might consider to be good taste.

    As for thinking there are no Jews there, WTF?? Where on earth did he get that idea?

    Nothing worse than idiot with an idiot ideology and a gun.

    If you read Bahari's Newsweek article on his captivity, you will learn that his interrogator, and probably the entire organization for which he works (the intelligence branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard), believe that Newsweek is a spy agency and that a guy who interviewed Bahari for a segment of The Daily Show was a spy because he dressed up "like some character out of a B movie about mercenaries in the Middle East&#8212;with a checkered Palestinian kaffiyeh around his neck and dark sunglasses." The segment from The Daily Show was part of their "evidence" that Bahari was a spy. Yes, they are that fucking ignorant and obtuse. Common effects of paranoia.

    It's not necessarily lack of sex (lack of alcohol, maybe); it's lack of sexual freedom, which of course generates extravagant, envious fantasies about the sex lives of those who do not live under similar constraint. Bahari writes of his interrogator (to whom he refers as "Mr. Rosewater" because of the scent he wore):

    I wonder what Mr. Rosewater made of the Nigerian princes and enlargement pill ads.

    But it looks so nice on The Sopranos- especially The Pine Barrens....
