  •  Jersey hit hard (none)
    Ft. Monmouth closing w/ 5000 personnel gone...
    •  I live close to the Picatinny Arsenal... (none)
      ...which is actually gaining 700 jobs, but as you say, at the expense of Fort Monmouth.  All in all NJ's losing about 4000 military jobs.  I know closing Picatinny would've screwed the local area, I can't imagine what it's like in Fort Monmouth this morning.

      I had heard that the base realignment was going to be in accordance to geographical threats.  If this is true, why shut down any base close to NYC?  

      •  basically... (none)
        any bullshit excuse in a storm?  they're going to have a lot of people pretty pissed off with these closures so i'm figuring they need some sort of cover... umm. national security, umm. oh shit.. umm. runaway bride, over there!

        You can lead an elephant to water but you can't make 'em think.
