As a dog owner, I feel guilty leaving my hounds in their kennel for even a few hours. Dogs belong with their human companions; curled up by the fire, lounging on the couch, chilling by the fridge hoping to snag a piece of dropped cheese.
Not everyone wants to propose marriage on a beach at sunset, at a restaurant over dessert or via a made-for-Youtube extravaganza. Here are ideas from Virginia to Maine for lovers of all sorts.
After five years at the helm it's time the governor stops blaming others for our problems. It's time he comes home to do the job he was elected to do. If he can't do it here in New Jersey, he certainly can't get it done in Washington.

Dear Steve Wozniak, I wanted to thank you for the fascinating talk you gave at the recent New Jersey Speaker Series at NJPAC. I have to be honest with you. I wasn't sure I'd be fascinated because I anticipated hearing a lot of technical engineering jargon that would go right over my head.
As sponsor of legislation banning the cruel practice of gestation crates where pregnant sows are forced to live most of their lives without being able to stand up and turn around, I challenge Governor Christie to prove me wrong.
