"Man stabbed self in back of neck," says Anny

Two days ago I reported that Newark was claiming its first Murder Free Month in 44 years. I was disdainful and made plenty of really funny jokes about it. Really funny.

Then I checked out Newark Mayor Corey Booker's twitter and was so annoyed by the textspeak abuse. All politicians have blackberries and should be capable of spelling "you."

BUT

I also noticed he is soliciting donations for his re-election campaign...the day after Newark supposedly had this major murder-free breakthrough. I call shenanigans!

* For folks wondering why I'm so jaded by Newark - we're in the same county and they drive up the cost of my renter's and car insurance. Boo Essex County!
