Hoboken Week in Review – 3/2/2008

3/2/2008 Detox:

Other than the standard drunken incidents, yesterday was an excellent day. Most people seemed to be under control. I recall overhearing on the live Hoboken police and fire scanner (which is back online for everyone again) that there were “47 customers served” yesterday by the Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corp. Not bad. Also the key phrase on the radio was “city ordinance issued,” which probably meant “another $1000 in the bank” for the city.

The usual Hoboken411 Week in Review graphic is being replaced today with a “Let’s clean your system out” optical illusion. Just kind of look at this out of the corner of your eye, and it will appear to be moving. It should push you over the edge enough to rid yourself of whatever toxins are left in your body heh heh.

If you need to hurl, look at this picture
