Had a fun night in Montclair Friday night...went to Leone's for pizza, Rascals for a drink before the movie and then dessert at Gimme Cookies...luv the whole Church St thing going on.

I see you're raving about the movie....

"Good Night, Good Luck"...my kind of movie...adult dialogue, no crashes or chases, compelling characters and a true story. Interesting to see the behind the scenes TV workings in the '50s. Straithern(sp)became Edward R Murrow in the movie.

It makes you realize how McCarthy's tactics were similiar to the Bush Administration's. If you offer any dissent then you're not a patriot. I am an ardent conservative in my view of the roll of the Government in our lives. But I'm a flaming liberal when it comes to first amendment freedoms.

I had to give an oral argument today before a panel of judges. Nothing like being dressed in a suit on a Saturday morning. So, I'm going to have to get drunk tonight to even this day out.

"Order in the court!"
"I'll have a gin and tonic."

Hope it went well, Dana.

Thanx for the capsule review Iceman. I'll have to check this out.

Joel Siegel reported that after a rough-cut screening, several Hollywood execs told Clooney, "Great film, except you've got to find somebody else to play McCarthy, that guy you got is just too over the top." Siegel insists that this is not an urban legend.

i can not believe that you saw this. people really say some stupid things.
the mayor (whom we do not know) had nothing to do with the approvals. the board was shown full plans and elevations of both houses, we met all set back requirements and % of land coverage requirements. if they don't like it let them change there own rules. the buyer of these homes will have a max of two kids. and yes they will go to private school and yes they will be paying about $25,000.00 per home in taxes which will go for the eduacation of less fortunate children. keep in mind that as of now the town only collects 12,000.00 a year on this entire property. also, let the neighbors remember thet because of the development of such homes the town of montclair did not raise taxes last year, as they stated due to the development of properties like this. we don't drive the same cars as we did 50-100 years ago why would we buld the same home. these homes echo back to a better time but have the modern conviences that we come to expect. garages are a part of our culture and yes most wealthy families drive big SUV's. guess what the garages need to be big to fit them in. when the old homes were built in montclair the car while important did not play the same role it plays in our lives today. times change and we change with them. as you might guess i could go on and on but when these homes are finished we will let them speak for themselves.

Gene, you seem lost. Your post in in the weekend chat, and your houses ought to be in Levittown.

Posted by: jeannie | Nov 21, 2005 6:36:55 PM

So, Gene. How is it you know that the buyers will have no more than 2 kids, and they will send them to private schools? Will that be in the contract?
