Hackensack Discussion / Re: My favorite paper is not having a good day

Once again, you COMPLETELY miss the point. I'm not trying to tell sports fans about grammar and captions. My writing is basically a complaint about the people who create all the errors and stupidity - people who are supposedly quite literate and who have been properly trained to do their jobs and should know better than to put out the crap they do. If I'm lucky, somebody in charge might realize what's going on and do something about it (and maybe the sun will be green tomorrow). I'm of the opinion that none of this should go unchallenged.

I'm a sports fan. Do I sound barely literate and grammatically-challenged to you? You're REALLY judgmental in your out-of-left-field and over-the-top characterizations. And how do you know that the Courant guy wasn't a subscriber whose Little League son got his picture in the sports section and Dad wanted another copy?

It's hardly healthy to get your opinions shaped by the weird biases that you let bounce around in your head.

More much ado about nothing. One way to look at it is that many sports fans are barely literate and wouldn't know the difference between correct and incorrect syntax and silly captions. Judging from the number of arrests for human trafficking at the Super Bowl each year, fans are more interested in sex with underage girls than in typos and broken syntax. The New York Times Sports section today (Sunday) is 8 pages, including the TV listings on the back page. A recent copy of The Record I saw during the week also devoted 8 pages to Sports (what a waste), and only 3 to local news. Do sports fans even vote in presidential elections or care about municipal affairs in Hackensack or anywhere else? I seriously doubt it. When I was a reporter for the Hartford Courant in Connecticut in the 1970, I lived in a corner apartment overlooking a newspaper box in Hartford. I'll never forget the time I saw a man put a coin in the box, grab a copy of The Courant (which had many pages in a few sections), and dump all but the Sports section into a trash basket. That said it all, and has shaped my opinion of the large majority of sports fans.[size]

I met a friend for lunch in Montclair last week, and found the streets in that tony community no better than we have in Hackensack. Rough, potholed, frequently patched pavement is a rash that is spreading around northern New Jersey. In Englewood, the number of sunken manholes is astounding, and I find a lot of them on county owned streets like Grand and Engle Streets. Instead of driving down a street, you have to slalom.

There's one thing that would make that last image a perfect stitch: if that vehicle really WAS made by a company called "VOLVOLVO".

The guy on the roof should have his hard hat on............wood pieces are falling out of the bottom. And note that the biggest falling piece is under the dark "Play" button in the center.

The Pix:

1-9. Getting all the roofing materials up on the roof before the July 4 holiday kicks in. Is the guy on the left in the ninth picture taking a selfie?


"Even on the 4th of July, Bob?" Sure!

10-13. The roof at sunset with all that stuff on it made interesting stitches, but a couple of hours later, the Hackensack fireworks were magnificent. The east-facing tenants in this building will love them.


14-19. Except for the first one, they're all roof rain work shots, taken while I'm nice and dry in my living room.
