Venezuela to give island to New Jersey Gee thanks, Hugo. What a lovely gift. :irked: An oil and chemical soaked island in the middle of the Delaware. All we have to do is wait 10 years for it to be allegedly clean enough for humans to visit and it's ours. Oh and we'll have to pay to create a ferry system to get people there and back or build a bridge. Just what New Jersey needs another polluted piece of land to give people cancer. Isn't a gift something which the recipient is supposed to be glad to receive. Something which does not cause them undue stress and expense.
