Break? What Break?

There’s nothing like declaring a break to make a newsie’s brain fill up with a backlog of ideas for stories. There must be a name for this syndrome, but I don’t know what it is.

Among the topics that floated to the top of the mental soup were the unanticipated effects of the new City Council schedule, musings on what constitutes the “black vote,” the problem of sorting hard facts from conviviality when it comes to redevelopment and some other thoughts on why, despite everything, we love Plainfield.

Therefore, in coming hours or days, I will expound on these topics.

Welcome Back!

The issues in Plainfield are so many. It's fascinating, to some of us anyway, to see how they all evolve. Tweaking and twisting issues with the hope that readers will find something to pull them into the middle of the issue is always attractive and quite challenging.

Sometimes the break we need is only the time we take to realize that what we do is not work but pleasure. So, let those muses take you along the streets of Plainfield once more and give us more of your stories!
