Governor's Fighting Over Pot

Some of you might have heard New Jersey Governor Chris Christie opposes legalization of marijuana. He pointed to Colorado's recent legalization of marijuana as one reason not to support legalization in his state:

 "For the people who are enamored with the idea with the income, the tax revenue from this, go to Colorado and see if you want to live there."

Colorado's governor responded in kind, citing a number of various state rankings (Business, for example: Colorado #7, New Jersey #42) showing Colorado quite ahead of New Jersey. Quite the comeback, I thought. He definitely won that round.

Parts of New Jersey are O.K., but most of it is a combination of industrial wastelands, urban shitscapes, and endless bland, no-character suburbs. Colorado ain't perfect (no place is) but I'd take it over New Jersey any day of the week, and twice on Sundays.
