Know What
I'm Sayin'??

I don't have much time, but I have a few comments about New Jersey/New York.

How can a state that is ETERNALLY cloudy be known as the Garden State? We really need a better nickname, folkz.

"Twp" is a terrible abbreviation for "Township".

What the hell is a Township, anyway?

I know the real reason everybody takes the subway instead of driving. It's the roads. This place has the worst roads I have ever seen. Anything less than an F-150, and you're rockin' and rollin'.

I also may have figured out why this place looks some ramshackle to me. This is it: Land is expensive, so space is at a premium, and people want to make the most of their land. The result is a bunch of buildings right up against each other. In Atlanta, they're a lot more apt to put a little strip of green between themselves. The result here is that everything looks a bit disjointed.

Me to the Avis bus guy: "Can I have a map?"
ABG: "You'll have to get one at the gate on your way out."
Me to the Avis Gate Guy: "Can I have a map?"
AGG: "I don't have any. You'll have to get one at the office."

Sigh. Nevermind.

This rant sounded a bit more...ranty...last night when I was driving, but it was 1:something in the morning and I prioritized.

Twp IS a terrible abbreviation though.
