Two Page 1 stories, an editorial and an editorial cartoon today continue the editors' romance with Governor Christie.
The Record treats the GOP bully like a mighty chief executive who single-handedly brought back New Jersey from the ravages of Superstorm Sandy, and who will somehow make his foolish no-tax policies work.
The editors -- from Marty Gottlieb to Alfred P. Doblin -- continue to promote Christie's massive public relations/reelection campaign despite his dismal record since he took office in January 2010.
Missing the story
On the Local front, Road Warrior John Cichowski continues to miss the biggest development affecting road deaths -- the dramatic decline in enforcement by the New Jersey State Police (L-1).
Hundreds of troopers have left in the past 25 years and were never replaced. The force once had 3,000 members.
No longer, as any driver can tell from all of the speeding, tail-gating and weaving maniacs on the parkway and turnpike.
|Thanks to Governor Christie's anti-mass transit policies, the one constant in North Jersey is traffic, as seen near the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee.|
Cichowski reminds readers of all those seemingly able-bodied people they see using handicapped parking spaces -- especially at the gym. They must be mentally disabled.
In another e-mail to the reporter and managers, a concerned reader points out Cichowski's crippled reasoning in his previous column.

Exposing the Road Warrior handicap
I looked at the Better Living section today to see if there is any interesting food coverage or if Publisher Stephen A. Borg had named a new food editor.
All I found was a piece on grilling artery clogging sausages on BL-5.
However, a bonus today was Staff Writer Lindy Washburn's heart-stopping cover story on the dramatic operation that saved Englewood cardioligist Jeffrey Mitchel (BL-1).
Talk about Gottlieb burying a Page 1 story to make room for more Christie B.S. The circle is complete.
