WHEN PIGS FLY...Governor Jon Corzine stands next to a slide depicting an animated figure of a flying pig,  emphasizing a quote from his January 8 State-of-the-State Address. In the speech, he said "pigs will fly over  the Statehouse before there's a realistic level of new taxes or spending cuts that can fix this mess." He made the comment to support his proposals for remedying the state's financial problems. See pages 6 and 7 for his slide presentation.

Editorial: An Open Letter to New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, Re: Fiscal Crisis...Two years ago in February, we wrote in our newspapers that New Jersey had reached the end of the line and that you, Governor, would be forced to declare a "Fiscal State of Emergency."

Editorial: If There Was Ever a Time to Get Informed, It's Now, It's Urgent...N.J. Governor Jon Corzine gave a

Government Reform Thought: It seems that moving the Presidential Primary to February was popular with New Jersey voters, given Tuesday's high voter turnout. It was one of the reforms from last year that worked.   See Year-to-date Reform Thoughts.
