FORT LEE, N.J. — When Mayor Mark Sokolich's annual Christmas card showed up in mailboxes a few weeks ago, some residents took careful note of the photo selected for the front: the steely silhouette of this borough's treasured, and sometimes detested, George Washington Bridge — and a Revolutionary War cannon firing off a shot, as if to warn off unseen enemies who might try to threaten it.

So the govs office says close 2-3 lanes and the highway dept says OK? Are the highway workers idiots? They can SEE there is no reason to close lanes? Sure, blame that on the gov.

Read a little into it Joe. The fake reason for the closure was a traffic study and the contact at the Highway dept is a Christie crony.

" They can SEE there is no reason to close lanes? Sure, blame that on the gov."...................It was HIS staff or HIM who ordered this five-day near-closing of the most trafficked bridge in the world. This was intentional and retributive on his office's part. If CC has no control or knowledge of what's going on with his own inner circle, then the last thing he should aspire to is the highest office in the land.
