The Hoboken 500

As the Memorial Day holiday approaches, a news item indicates that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway encompasses more more area than Hoboken, and that it has 60 percent more full-time employees than does Hoboken.

What caused Hoboken to be selected as the city to which the Speedway was to be compared is not known to us, but this same news items tells us that come race day this Sunday the Speedway will have about seven times the number of “residents” than Hoboken.

Let's hope that traffic moves more sedately in Hoboken this weekend than it does on the iconic Speedway.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your Engines!

This is an astounding story. There is still a public pay phone someplace?
