What a bunch of idiots. It shows how uninformed those people of Newark that they interviewed are. Same goes for that lady with the bullhorn. Unbelievable. Can't wait to see if this becomes a routine thing. Occupy Pru Center? Gimmie a fvcking break.

Indeed. Let's go Nets? I'll admit I don't follow the NBA, but don't they play at the Rock, at least for now? How does trying to keep people out of the Nets' arena help the Nets? :dizzy:

After the name-calling, Devils officials let it be known Booker’s office requested tickets to Bruce Springsteen’s sold-out concert next month, a request Booker said was denied.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker was taken to a hospital tonight after a fire broke out in his neighborhood and he went inside to rescue one of the occupants, according to city officials.

Booker, who was taken by emergency medical workers to University Hospital in Newark, later told The Star-Ledger he suffered second-degree burns on his hand.

The woman inside the house was taken to Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston with burns to her back and neck and was in stable condition tonight, said Newark Fire Director Fateen Ziyad.

So I guess he's going to make budget cuts for the fire department now since they are clearly not needed anymore.

I know he is trying to throw our team owner under the bus, but I just find it so hard to dislike this guy. He's doing great things for Newark, he chased down a mugger by foot, and now he saves a woman from a fire after a day at work. He's like a superhero :P

Apparently JVB was at the scene too, but was busy twirling his mustache, adjusting his monocle and stealing money from orphans when the building was burning.

Hero gets bashed by NJ Devils owner in press today. Bad timing Jeff! He needs a better PR rep. Just kidding, I know he couldnt have predicted the events of the night after his presser. I was reading the article and the Devils have an on paper shortfall of a couple hundred grand to the "community training" maybe they should just gift the judgement award and call it all even?

i don't think JVB is in any position to gift anything - that's part of this, I'm sure.

I loved booker. His jvb rant was so uncharacteristic.

Edit: Give the man some Springsteen tix

I made a comment to my brother about Booker being nuts and he schooled me on how much Booker has done for veterans and their foundations. I guess I will refrain from further comments on him.
