    I was up there some years back when my son graduated basic traning from the Coast Guard. I had a different vision of what New Jersey looked like from TV. Its really a beautiful place, especially Cape May.
    If its illegal to drink and drive. Why do bars have parking lots?

    For being a small state New Jersey is many different areas. There are 5 or 6 seperate sections. In fact part of Cape May county is below the Mason Dixon line.
    Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

    that is a falsehood, if the mason dixon line continued east to the ocean it would be true but the line turns south and forms the border of DE and MD

    I know. It was a billboard that was up for years on Route 9. I don't remember the town. It was a joke about how different the southern part of New Jersey is from the northern industrial areas.

    I went through basic training in Cape May in 1968 ---- from my view it was far from beautiful. As a civilian it is quite nice.
