Reader Mail: Double dose of Davey
Today’s Hoboken411 reader mail segment is a bit peculiar for me.
A resident requested that I do some “fun with Photoshop” type pieces in regards to some Mayor Roberts sightings at the recent WWII Memorial Ceremony. I complied, and you’ll see them accompanied by their email below.
However, just yesterday – I received an “out of the blue” phone call from the Mayor (I originally wondered what I did wrong), but he called to tell me how much he enjoyed the “Oscar photo of the week!” How nice!
Now it feels funny to publish this – but it was scheduled all week – so what’s a guy gonna do? (Mayor – thanks again for the compliments on Oscar! Next year – instead of sending me a card for my birthday – just send some treats for Oscar … money much better spent!)
Anyway – on to today’s entry:
Roberts IS Nixon!
Take a look at these two photos. One is of Mayor David Roberts sulking in the pouring rain during the World War II memorial service. The other is former President Richard Nixon as he prepared to resign amid scandal. I’m struck by the similarities of the moment. Roberts is looking more like Nixon every day! Between the budget fiasco, the SWAT scandal, and missing HPU million, among other investigations, is it any wonder Roberts is feeling the pressure? It really shows.
Caption This Photo!
“Here is another photo that would make a great caption contest. Roberts is sitting between State Senator and Union City Mayor Brian Stack on the left and former State Senator Bernie Kenny on the right. Stack squeezed Kenny out of office. Again it is in the pouring rain at the WWII memorial. Here is my caption.” (411 note: I added their caption to the picture below.)
What would YOUR captions be?
