New Jersey: All the Taxes of New York Without Any of That Annoying Fun

Oddly enough, New Jersey -- for all of its reputation as a liberal state -- has some of the most reliably Republican Congressional districts in the U.S. today.

There's one area out in Morris/Somerset/Hunterdon Counties (a little ways north of Princeton) that is dominated by some very old, very quiet money -- and where Steven Forbes is one of the poorest residents in his neighborhood.

New Jersey -- and the New Jersey / downstate New York / eastern Pennsylvania region in general -- has one very appealing characteristic that I haven't seen anywhere else in my travels across the U.S. As far as I know, it's the only place in North America that has four distinct seasons that are all roughly three months long.

And there isn't a prettier place in autumn than northern New Jersey or downstate New York, either.

"New Jersey: Expect the Unexpected,"

You could have fun with that one and some fake TV ads. Middle America family vacations in NJ- having fun. Gangsters roar up and dump a body at their feet. Cut to the slogan. Next one could use Hip-hop muggers sticking them up; you could make a whole series.

New Jersey and You: Perfect Together -- Tourism slogan back in the Thomas Keane days.

Today with all that passes for courtesy, civic pride, and morality i think the best slogan would be

Submitted by Mr. T. Soprano of Bergen County

The "Bada Bing" aka Satin Dolls is in Bergen County, but I believe that the house used as Tony's home is in Essex County, near Cedar Grove.

Of course, the meat market is in Hudson County, so Mr. Soprano gets around.

New Jersey: You Don't Leave Unless You Pay

LOL. For others, if you've been there, this is true. All bridges to get out of NJ charge a toll. Generally you don't pay to get in though.

Interesting factoid. NJ has the highest population per square mile than any other state....however...60% of it is rural. Go figure.
