Essays about Gov. Chris Christie and New Jersey politics, the national political scene, unnecessary wars and wrongheaded government, rare displays of political courage, not-so-rare displays of political cowardice, an Italian-American heritage shared by 17 million Americans, public employee unions, and other public policy issues that challenge state and federal government. No politician, regardless of political party, or government policy is safe from the author's scrutiny, but those mired in the usual hypocrisy of the public arena are particular targets: Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, the National Rifle Association and the Tea Party get special attention, but so do liberals beholden to special interests on the Left.
