When I looked at the site today, this appeared at the top of the page:
The "violation" apparently occurred when I included the Web address of Eye on the Record in my comment.
Today, I wanted to comment on the stories about Governor Christie's health problems, and ask why his weight wasn't included.
It's interesting how the comments from readers are far more direct than any of the so-called experts or pundits quoted in The Record's stories and column today.
Here are two of the comments:

Christie is in denial of his medical problems. Low blood pressure is common in pre-diabetics and diabetics because the damage that their elevated blood sugar does to their circulatory system and hearts causes the heart to be ineffective, lowering their pressure. An obese man with low blood pressure is also in greater danger of circulatory disease due to the long-term damage to organs caused by poor blood flow. Instead of bragging about it, he'd better be monitored for it and checked both for his asthma and the causes of the low BP. If he has an asthma attack with that low a BP, it could kill him by depriving his heart of oxygen.

He is a perfect example, of how not to be. Bloated, angry, and unhealthy. Hardly something of an example for us, mere citizens. We need a leader that impresses, not digests. And I am no better off since he has implemented his plans. And he is under 50, this guy is zero self discipline. Hardly an inspirational person to be put in a leadership job. Are we better off now, than we where a few years ago, I think not. Since the republicans think Reagan was a disciple, let's quote that guy on themselves. He needs to walk more and be driven around less, doesn't he know anything about exercise? Horrible example for the CHILDREN, doesn't he know they are our future, and they are very much influenced by our superb leadership in this country. Bloated is as Bloated does. Think of the children, they look at the bloated gov, and tell mommy, I want to be big and bloated like our gov, so I can become president!
