Today's crop of problem children includes a small one on the Business page and a boatload of doozies on one Sports page:

1. What kind of tax rate?

2. "Mets Notes" squared and a sandwich of two images

3. A red heading in an unusual place

4, 5. Two more double-image sandwiches, with one of the pictures sitting in two separate articles


Nice to see they're making an effort to fix things.

World Imports sold nunchucks, Chinese stars, and glow-in the-dark, velvet posters. As Spock would say..." fascinating".

Wasn't World Imports on 17N in Rochelle Park? next to the Hole in the Wall? I think they sold some furniture and decorative items.

That sounds right.

If it's the place I'm thinking of they had a tiger skin rug (I'm sure it was fake) that as a kid I really wanted.... and no I am not a decorator or into fashion. Just thought it was real cool.

I was working and if you actually went to my site and saw what I wrote and noticed its tone, you wouldn't ask that question.

And I still have no idea why she was there.

But you can buy the nice picture of her, Homer................you'd be the first.

Wait a minute! You would actually admit on a public forum that you went to see Pia Zadora?

Are you sure that was the name? I don't know about the  rest of  the 80s, but in 1983 the record store there was called Record World.

The very first picture under "Hackensack" on  my site is one I took of Pia Zadora at Record World in 1983.

I do remember a store called World Imports, but I'm pretty sure it was elsewhere. I also think they sold interesting stuff because I flashed on the name as soon as I read what you wrote.

Anybody out there remember anything about World Imports?
