Hurricane Sandy has taken a heavy toll on the East Coast of the U.S., and the destruction is particularly harsh in New Jersey. Unfortunately, that’s where The Capital Spectator resides. The lack of electricity is, of course, the 21st century equivalent of getting kicked in the head, and your editor remains dazed at this point. Internet access is spotty and today’s return to the digital world is a brief affair. I’m told that power won’t be restored until early next week, and that’s the optimistic forecast. In short, stuff happened and the usual routine at CapitalSpectator.com remains on hiatus. But not for long. Meantime, to all our East Coast readers, especially those in New Jersey: Be well, be safe.
