Hoboken Week in Review – 7/19/2009
Back to (somewhat) normal!
OK, the fireworks spectacular is long gone, many of us are in “summer mode,” and the heavy-duty politicking is essentially over – so that means Hoboken is in “cruise control” mode. Not a bad thing by any means!!
So what made the most discussed entries for the week ending Sunday, July 19th, 2009?
Hottest general topics of the week
A simple video post about a particularly “out there” TV host generated the most action of the week! Republican or Democrat – you have an opinion about Mr. Glenn Beck!
An update about a badly injured Hoboken resident – and how one intersection is still in need of help. We need elections every month – it’s the only way some politicians seem to care about the community!
No, not sleepy – but rather fierce discussion about how our local school board is “handling business…”
Local Housing Authority Commissioner is arrested for taking bribes to help those that will pad his wallet.

Many of you didn’t realize that Papa John’s delivered to Hoboken – most of you would never call them!
Most typical squirrel entries involve nuts – Hoboken’s involves PIZZA – rock on!
One drunk guy goes swimming in the Hudson – He’s arrested – some free country we live in!
An internet social phenomenon – do you use Twitter to stay in touch? Or do you think it’s disconnecting the “real world?”
One local female decides to share her very personal body parts to the public!
