Billboard: Say something
nice about Camden

South Jersey Times [Woodbury, NJ], by Jason Laday

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/5/2012 2:26:28 PM

Camden — It’s a simple enough request, but after a November that saw the city expand its all-time record for homicides to 62, it seems likely to shock and stump a fair amount of people: “Say something nice about Camden.” That’s the challenge presented, in the form of a billboard that first appeared on Monday, to South Jersey drivers crossing through Camden on Route 30. Conceived as equal parts art piece and rallying cry, the new campaign, created by Manhattan media executive Jennifer Barton, is aimed at getting people to dwell on some of the more positive aspects of Camden.

Comments:
They chased away all the white people, and now it´s a Garden of Eden? Everyone on welfare, no taxpayers? No police force to interfere with crimes? Reliable bloc of Democrat voters? No.

Only positive I see (apart from not living there) is that it´s a living laboratory demonstration of failed government social policies, but that´s of no interest to the government or the news media.

A suspect has been taken into custody in connection with a string of random highway shootings that left three people wounded in the Kansas City, Missouri, area. The male suspect has yet to be named as no charges have been filed, police chief Darryl Forte told a press conference on Thursday evening. Police said last week that they had connected 12 shootings since early March that have targeted vehicles on Kansas City-area roads. Investigators have looked into as many as 20 reported highway shootings as part of their investigation. Three people have been hit with bullets, and their injuries were

Two North Wilkesboro warehouse facilities will be closed by the end of the year as part of a major restructuring announced Thursday by La-Z-Boy Inc.

A man who beheaded his girlfriend before stabbing himself has been sentenced to life with a minimum term of 20 years in prison. Aras Hussein, 21, stabbed student Reema Ramzan, 18, in her chest with a kitchen knife and began to decapitate her while she was still alive. He then stabbed himself in the chest, took his clothes off and went outside his flat in Shirecliffe, Sheffield. A neighbour saw him standing naked and covered in blood while holding a wad of money and a passport. Hussein admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility but denied murder at his

Half of all foreign doctors in Britain do not have the necessary skills to work here but can practise because the competency exam is too easy, a major study finds. The majority of the 88,000 foreign doctors in the health service would fail exams if they were held to the same standard as their British colleagues, according to the research. The disclosure will add to concerns over the reliance of the NHS on foreign doctors. The language ability of some has been questioned in recent years. The research potentially shows more wide-ranging inadequacies. Around 1,300 foreign physicians are licensed each

Kim Kardashian may be one of the most sought-after women in the world - but one man can´t stay far enough away from the reality TV star. Retail assistant Mike Amess has an unusual phobia: he is absolutely petrified of the Kardashian family. He breaks out in a cold sweat whenever he sees or hears the famous family and says the sight of a semi-naked Kim even makes him vomit with disgust. The 24-year-old from Exeter explains, ´Just hearing the sound of the Kardashians´ nasal voices or catching a glimpse of them on screen makes me feel nauseous

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The
