I'm particularly sad about how the Jersey shore is no more. It's sad to see the places where you spent your youth completely gone. I know that they'll rebuild, but when you see the entire Seaside boardwalk gone, it's hard for me not to reminiscence about spending the weekend after junior prom there or all the times Jenn and I went out there in high school during our Friday nights.

There was a little levity in all of this though. SNL had a hilarious sketch showing Mr. Robotic Bloomberg and his now-famous signer, along with Christie and a Jersey equivalent. Yeah, sometimes you gotta laugh a little bit.
Oh, and there was an election. All I can say is Yes!
