The Christie Way

New Jersey's two main cities are New York and Philadelphia. That's not a knock on New Jersey, it's just the way it is. Jersey has other things within its borders, but the big cities are in neighboring states. Any governor of that state should recognize the importance of good transport links to and from those cities. It wouldn't be too weird for Christie to be indifferent to mass transit. That's pretty common in the US, even if it's idiotic. But given bridgegate and games with the transportation funds generally, he hasn't been too concerned with the automobile links, either. Everything's a slush fund for the governor, you see. Governing isn't the job, self-promotion is. Though that didn't work out very well. Wrong again! Okay, this one makes me laugh, too.
