Green with Enmity No More
Plainfield's ever-expanding blog roll - Dan, Bernice, Maria, olddoc, Rashid, Cory, Renata, Greg, VWB, Augustine - has a new entrant, none other than our own Assemblyman Jerry Green!
Yes, the man to whom blogs and bloggers are anathema has now got his posting on with "Jerry Green's Page," billed as featuring "plain truths, real solutions" about his role in the Queen City and in Trenton.
The tone of the blog is refined and moderate. He welcomes comments and asks that you bring an open mind to his new little corner of the blogosphere. Maybe it's a case of "if you can't fight 'em, join 'em."
Considering that Green has to run for election next year along with his protege, the mayor, it's a clever way to showcase what he's done for the people. His chairmanship of the Democratic City Committee is also up just after the June 2009 primary.
The blog doesn't exactly have the voice we are most familiar with from Jerry. Right or wrong? But it's a voice, and there's plenty to talk about between now and next June.
There's no initiation ritual that I know of for bloggers. But just as military folks make an archway of swords for welcoming rituals, maybe all of us bloggers can make a virtual arch of pointy sticks or somesuch and cry "Huzzah!"
