Hoboken Breakfast Nuggets – 9/8/2009
Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend, and has a quick, painless short week ahead!
Here’s the latest periodical morning collection of news tidbits in and around Hoboken and beyond…
Union Dry Dock gets over $500k stimulus
“In these tough economic times, it is vital that we invest in America’s maritime industry so that it is better prepared to meet our nation’s shipping needs,” NJ Senator Lautenberg said as Union Dry Dock & Repair Company of Hoboken will receive $577,902 in federal funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for welding, lifting and blast and coating equipment to help improve the local and regional shipping industry.
Obama has genius advice
This weekend, President Obama shared brilliant information with school kids – telling them to wash their hands often. Curiously, he didn’t cover what would happen if the previous person didn’t wash their hands and touched the door handle on the way out of the bathroom. Next step – telling humans to remember to breathe and eat.
Michael Moore is a tool
Film maker Michael Moore makes news with his latest movie called Capitalism: A Love Story – basically saying that “Captialism is evil.”
Ironically, his controversial film will sell tickets, and earn him money in the exact capitalistic way he’s criticizing.
Big Right Wing news story today?
Lastly, one of the more conspiracy-minded Hoboken411 readers sent me this video preview from Infowars.com host Alex Jones – who is claiming the biggest story in his 14 years will air this morning at 11am. I have no idea what it will be or how big (he says “national news”) it will be. Take it for what it’s worth.
And have a great day everyone!
