Tanning Mom Responds
"Sun glow you're happy, burned you're fried."

My obsession with Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil grows stronger with every passing public appearance. Her latest is this gem of a TMZ interview where she responds to New Jersey’s newly instated “Tan Mom Law,” which requires anybody under the age of 17 to have a parent or legal guardian present when using a tanning bed.  In addition, it requires the legal guardian and underage tanner sit through a consultation together about the risks of tanning. Also, it states that children under the age of 14 can’t get a spray tan. (What are all those “Toddlers & Tiaras” contestants going to do?) Keep reading »

In addition to having a state bird, a state motto and a state garbage dump (I kid! NEW JERSEY!), New Jersey also has one very special thing: s state dinosaur. Yes, that’s right — the tiny coastal state elected the tree-eating herbivore Hadrosaurus foulkii as its state dinosaur in the early ’90s. Sadly, the state dinosaur trend didn’t really pick up, and only four other states claim official dino reps — Missouri, Maryland, Wyoming and Texas (surprise, surprise). Guh, I want one, too. [Maxim]

New York, New Jersey Forced To Evacuate Again

The Nor’easter threatening the already-battered Atlantic Coast is weakening, but New York and New Jersey are still ordering evacuations ahead of the storm, which is already pelting Washington with ice and stirring seas as high as 7.5 feet off New York. In New York City, parks and beaches have been closed, construction halted, and 770 flights canceled; those in nursing homes and low-lying waterfront areas have been ordered to evacuate in New York and New Jersey. FEMA is ready to respond if necessary, Reuters reports. Read more…

Gay marriage is a hot-button issue, but its reach goes far beyond simply the same-sex couples who wish to be joined in matrimony. It also affects their kids. Like 15-year-old Madison Galluccio, who gave a heartfelt speech this week to New Jersey lawmakers in an effort to push forth same-sex marriage rights. As Galluccio so eloquently explains, laws preventing her dads John and Michael Galluccio from marrying stigmatize. “I shouldn’t have to be forced to feel like I’m different. This is my family, and I want us to be able to have the same rights as you. So NJ, please give me my freedom.” Thanks in part to Galluccio’s testimony and that of other same-sex marriage-proponents, the Marriage Equality and Religious Exemption Act passed the New Jersey State Assembly 5-2.
