Attendant on duty

New Jersey is small enough that without precisely timed U turns, you wind up in another state (or the Atlantic Ocean) before you're done loading up the CD changer. Nonetheless:
New Jersey's Constitution calls for the Senate president to be acting governor when the governor is out of the state, followed by the Assembly speaker if the Senate president is also absent.
So in the past few days, we've had three different governors—none of whom has banned the use of hoagie, rigged a lottery drawing, demolished the tollbooths on the Garden State Parkway, or even ordered the NJ National Guard back from Iraq.

These guys have no imagination.
