It is now a proven fact that eating food—any kind of food—will kill you. No one who has eaten food in the past is alive today and everyone currently eating food will die.

path to democracy all tell essentially the same story.
New Jersey has a multi-millionaire Governor, Jon Corzine, whose monthly energy bill is not a problem. That leaves the rest of the State’s citizens out in the cold because, as the largest daily newspaper recently noted, “New Jersey already is one of the most expensive states for business” and, may I add, for auto insurance, property taxes, and a sales tax.
