My wife says she never met someone who was just really a New Jersey person. Well, I've got family in NJ going back a couple of centuries, all in Central New Jersey- Middlesex and Monmouth counties. I love this state. I love the woods, farms, factories, estates, suburbs. I love the rich, the poor, the immigrants, the clamdiggers, the stumpjumpers, the pineys. I love the Indians, the Costa Ricans, the Mexicans, the Poles, the Hungarians, the Jews, the Italians, the Indians and the Chinese.
This is New Jersey. What a wonderful place!
