Corzine's Legacy?

In New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine's inner office at the State House in Trenton you can see pictures of the Governor with various politcal bigwigs and celebrities. There are all kinds of trinkets and momentos of his time in office. Only one piece of legisaltion he has signed into law in his 4-year term is framed and hanging in that office. It is the law repealing the death penalty in the Garden State.

One could surmise that Corzine must feel this bill was the most important measure he signed into law. The Governor doesn't say that although he consistently mentions the repeal of the death penalty as one of his major accomplishments. How "major" is it though?

The U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in 1976. New Jersey re-instated it in 1982, but the Garden State hasn't executed a single person since 1963.

Cynics find it comical that the only peice of signed and framed legislation hanging in the Governor's office is the repeal of something that hasn't been used in 46 years.

It is an executive position. Why would he have any legislation framed in his office?

Perhaps if he could show decreasing expenditures for all governments within the state or the end of all patronage posts or better train service or Regents examinations or a public health system in the state that provided quality medical care without health insurance, then that would be something he could have proudly framed in his office. But, of course, he did none of those things.

[b]Astro220 + dog module DC30 (комплект)[/b]

Всепогодный навигатор с функцией Dog Tracker поможет вам не потерять из вида вашего питомца даже в том случае, если собака погналась за какой-нибудь не в меру шустрой белкой. Радиус действия передатчика ошейника - до 8км.


Устройство Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracker поможет вам не потерять из вида вашего питомца даже в том случае, если собака погналась за какой-нибудь не в меру шустрой белкой.
Официально, GPS-система Garmin Astro предназначена для охотничьих собак, однако кто может помешать вам нацепить ее на ошейник вашего пекинеса, если вы о нем беспокоитесь?

Система Astro GPS состоит из двух основных частей - беспроводного передатчика DC30 и GPS Astro с цветным экраном. Использовать систему очень просто - следует просто выйти во двор, зафиксировать спутниковый сигнал и одеть ошейник на вашу собаку. DC30 передает сигналы о своем местоположении каждые 5-10-30 секунд, а отслеживать перемещения можно на цветной карте наладонника.
Кроме этого, на экране отображается компас, стрелка которого указывает направление по отношению к передатчику, а также текущее статус-состояние вашего четвероногого друга (в движении / стоит на месте). А если ваш питомец пересечет установленные вами границы, система Garmin Astro GPS Dog Tracker незамедлительно сообщит вам об этом звуковым сигналом
