As you no doubt have heard, the link to the 2008 roundup does not work.

Thanks for the previous book list! Want a suggestion? "Lincoln: Biography of a Writer", by Fred Kaplan, available at the library.

Please consider not publishing the "poop" comments. They offer no valid critcism, are offensive (even to someone who regularly uses all kinds of vulgarites), and serve to decrease the seriousness of the discussion. There're less than pointless, they're destructive.

I get it when I click on the link, so I don't know what the problem might be. It is a post from December 2007. Will look into it.

Sorry, from December 2008. I did the link over and tested it. Maybe you can try the "refresh" button or another browser.

Bernice,

Wenson-Maier is making money in Rahway off the SAME developer who is making money off Plainfield? This is UNETHICAL! What have the mayor, Council President Burney, and the rest of the council said about this clear conflict of interest? Jerry Green sells a building for hundreds of thousands of dollars to UCIA, which is headed by Charlotte DeFilippo for a project that probably won't come to fruition, and we are paying for that with our county taxes. What has Wenson-Maier said about this conflict? Has anyone questioned her about it?

The link to the old post works now--I just checked it and read it. 415 residential units on North Ave? Hundreds of other units in areas close by? Bernice, sorry, this sounds absolutely nuts! Were (are?) these to be condos or rentals? How on earth would the city be able to handle the additional city services (cops, fire, schools, garbage, hospital, etc.) with all these proposed units? Enlighten me, please, because I am not getting any information from the administration or from the city's website.

On another, happier note, re Steve's addition to booklist: I took a course with Fred Kaplan right before he retired from the Grad Center--"The Literature of the American Civil War"--we read a great deal of Lincoln, as well Grant's Personal Memoirs, among other works--also, Henry James's Notes of a Son and Brother (the PPL has a first edition of the James, no longer in circulation, due to its fragility). The class was fantastic--I remember Kaplan as a kind, generous, and thoughtful scholar--we read a great deal of Lincoln, as well Grant's Personal Memoirs in that class. I will get the Lincoln book!

I read this at the suggestion of Rahway Rising. While it's apples-to-artichokes, it significantly raised my sophistication level regarding the local condo situation.
