"It's New Jersey"

Back in 2006, Vai Sikahema concluded his piece "Rutgers is Wrong" with the simple words: Well, it's New Jersey. Philly channel 10 deleted all reference to "Rutgers is Wrong" shortly thereafter, and IPBiz started using the term "sikahema" to refer to deletions from the internet.

Meanwhile, as to "it's New Jersey," former Keansburg schools superintendent Barbara Trzeszkowski has dropped her demand for $556,290 in severance pay which had been calculated by multiplying her monthly salary by the 38 years she worked in Keansburg. BUT she is not going home empty-handed: She gets $50,000 to help cover her legal fees, and she is still entitled to accrued vacation and sick time of more than $184,000 and an annual pension of about $104,000, [from]

Of Sikahema:


of former Governor Corzine: The Wall Street options and futures firm MG Global Holdings Ltd. announced March 23 that Corzine is its new CEO and chairman, effective immediately.
Princeton University announced today that Corzine would be a visiting professor in the 2010-11 academic year. His duties there include leading a lecture series on financial market regulation and teaching a graduate course on state policy.

The ex-guv will do even better than Barbara:

The report said Securities and Exchange Commission filings show Corzine's salary starts at $1.5 million, but he can also collect a $1.5 million signing bonus and an additional $2 million bonus based on his job performance. He will also receive options to purchase 2.5 million shares of MF Global common stock.
