A long while ago I wrote a piece here exploring where people have a love and a patriotism for the State they live in. I wanted to link it, but somehow the Blogger search function isn’t working as I write this. I found that people seem to be really proud of Oregon, but at the time I thought Texas had highest ratings among its inhabitants in regards to State patriotism. I’m rethinking that now and I’m starting to believe that New Jersey may have the most fanatical residents.
I normally don’t have a theme week here. Sometimes one story will lead to another, but yesterdays post brought back a lot of fond memories for me so I’m going to run New Jersey stuff all this week just to give you a taste of what is myth and what is reality.
I lived in New Jersey for the first 33 years of my life. I often joke and tell people that it’s a nice place to be from, but in reality I really did enjoy growing up and living there until the sprawl got to me. There is a diversity of population there that keeps everything interesting. New Jersey is the epitome of a melting pot.
