It seems like every night when I watch the local news there’s a huge fire in Jersey. Major fire. And always across the river in Jersey.
Why? I don’t know. But when I saw this abstract from the New Jersey Law Journal, I just shook my head. Another sort of fire in Jersey…
That state across the river has got to be benighted–and I won’t even mention any further specific benights. (I’ve been delving into my new dictionary lately, so looked up “benighted,” just to make sure of my usage. To my surprise, I learn that it means “lacking understanding of cultural, intellectual or moral matters,” with this example: “you’re a provincial, benighted fool.” Actually, I thought it meant “blackened by Christie,” but the above definition works, too.)
