Manhattan-bound commuters continue to scramble for rush-hour seats on NJ Transit trains and buses that cost more to ride because of Governor Christie's deep cuts in state subsidies.
But Editor Deirdre Sykes is ignoring all of that to bring us a boring "analysis" on why rail unions are looking for a better deal than in a contract proposed in March (A-1).
And a sub-headline saying a strike is unlikely is an instant turnoff to commuters, and the vast majority of readers, who don't take mass transit.
Today, the only break in the heavy coverage of national and state politics, and the future of Atlantic City is another story about Englewood's failing public high school (A-1).
The photos on Page 1 and A-10 seem to suggest a tutoring program at Dwight Morrow High School was aimed only at Latina students who were at risk of not graduating.
For a decade or more, Sykes hasn't assigned any stories on Englewood's elementary and middle schools, where 99% of the students are black or Hispanic.
Hackensack police refused to say whether any of the drivers were charged after this two-car collision on Tuesday morning at Prospect Avenue and Clinton Place in the city's Fairmount section.
Sykes and Managing Editor Dan Sforza couldn't put out a local-news section without plugging holes with lots of police and court news, and news about the police.
Today, Staff Writer John Seasly has yet another story about who is running the Hackenack Police Department, while ignoring the rest of Tuesday night's City Council meeting (L-2).
