Brian Rock commented on a post on Blogger.
I was at the counter-rally in Trenton this week (and lobbied my elected officials at the Capitol earlier in the morning). I've testified before Asm. O'Scanlon on the budget committee, sparred with him on Twitter, and spoke to him after the fact on Thursday.

He is a genuinely nice person, open to engaging people with whom he doesn't agree - unlike our Governor. But at the end of the day, he will not vote for a tax increase in order to fund the pension (even partially). I appreciate his willingness to talk and dialogue, but I am disappointed in his refusal to accept the "hard truth" that it may take just a little bit of money from millionaires and corporations to fund the unfunded liability of an otherwise sustainable pension system.

Comparison of the new Canon Rebel t5i with it's predecessor. I want a new camera, but this is disappointing. I'm looking forward to the next generation of the 7D.

Took some pictures at the softball game yesterday. I like this one of Shay pitching. Took it from behind the backstop, looking right through the chain link fence.

Did you know that if rechargeable batteries won't charge up, you might be able to save them...? This is an interesting tip I found a few months ago that worked like a charm.
