Johnny covers the arts

Johnny is a big fan of the arts and a big supporter when he can be and owns pieces by four different Jersey City artists. He got a look at the new gallery at Modera Lofts on Morgan at Washington and the art spaces for displays and artists is tip top. Gorgeous. Here's a gallery section showing the work of a friend of Johnny's, Maurizio Zuluaga.

Do yourself a favor and bring a friend downtown and take a look at some of the awesome work being down by artists here in Jersey City.

Say bunky, can you spare an idea

Chris Christie, our failed governor was musing today about his plans after he's done running our state as far into the ground as he can on his watch. We know the readers at the Jersey City Desk have some great ideas and we'd LOVE to know what you'd like to see happen with Christie after he's done being governor. Rock our comments box with suggestions.

This will probably not come as a surprise to anyone living in New Jersey

Governor Chris Christie has hit an all-time low in state history with his cool 19% approval rating. Yes those ten credit downgrades, defaulting on a deal he made himself with public unions, aligning himself with alt-right Nazi acolytes of Donald Trump, even becoming his cheerleader at the RNC Convention, more than likely outright lying about his dealings in Bridgegate while his cronies head off to jail, it's a real shocker isn't it?

Chris Christie and his policies have failed New Jersey and made him a laughingstock. For those of us here in Jersey City, Christie's greatest sin will always be not standing up for Jersey City and helping parrot Trump's lies about JC and 9/11 by not refuting them with all his gusto which we've all seen on display when he hears something he doesn't like. Gutless, to those in Jersey City he will always be gutless.

19%. Abject failure by our Republican governor.

Johnny took a picture tonight he's pretty happy with

Johnny was out walking the dire wolf tonight and at one point he looked across the street and at first glance thought he saw an SUV with a shattered or spiderwebbed windshield. On second glance it was actually a perfect reflection of a tree being uplit on the windshield. It looks pretty cool if you ask Johnny. He's just in a sharing mood...

Normally Johnny wouldn't spend a Sunday talking about astroturf

Or "fieldturf" as you're about to read.

Seriously, who thought today you'd wake up and want to read an amazing in-depth story on the fleecing of American communities and taxpayers over the new "fieldturf" at the local high school football fields. NJ.com has another well done and truly enlightening piece on taxpayers getting ripped off by a company who knew their fields they sold to local high schools would fall apart much faster than they'd promised.

Take some time, maybe over coffee in the morning. It's what good journalism looks like.
