THE PARAGRAPHS OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s paragraphs come to us from Matthew Continetti, writing for the Washington Free Beacon. Here, from his latest commentary, is what Mr. Continetti has to say about embattled Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: How bad is RahmEmanuel? He makes Bill De Blasio look good.

AMAZING TRAFFIC SUCCESS

Ken Berwitz Apropos of nothing political… …tonight, I drove Route 18 from downtown New Brunswick straight to where it becomes a highway (below Spring Valley Road) without stopping for even one light. To do that is to make something like 15 to 20 lights consecutively. This probably means nothing to you. But since, in 43 years of driving that stretch of road it never happened to me...
