On A-1 today, the paper reports NJ Transit service was to resume at 12:01 a.m. On A-6, the continuation of the blizzard roundup, the same bus service "was expected to resume after midnight this morning." Huh?
Road Warrior Columnist John Cichowski made a rare trip out of the office to see how well roads had been cleared.
He found two pedestrians, calling them "compulsive about marching on foot through snow."
They turned out to be compulsive drinkers, as well, maybe even alcoholics. He quoted both as saying they needed a drink. He apparently saw no one walking in the street -- inches away from passing cars -- because of the miles and miles of uncleared sidewalks.
This man loves cars so much he hardly ever writes about mass transit. He even calls his car "Mr. Honda" and refers to it as a "family member." I wonder what his wife and children think about that.
He reports that "every footbridge over Route 4, as well as the steps to them, appeared to be swept clean." Of course, he missed the snowed-under Hackensack Avenue sidewalk over Route 4, near The Shops at Riverside.
It is never shoveled, because the city and county argue over who has responsibility for it.
Readers are the ones who need a drink after plowing through Chick's irrelevant drivel.
