The chicken smells 10/29/06

The story is told of an elderly Jewish woman who is inspecting her chicken and by accident drops it into a pail of turpentine.She washes it off and rushes to the Rabbi to inquire as to whether the chicken is kosher.
"Yes " says the Rabbi, "but it sure smells."
Reading todays NY Times story on Sen Bob Menendez and his business machinations brings this story to the forefront.I cannot tell you if there is illegality present.however I know that it represents clubhouse politics as a fine-tuned corporate machine,that leaves the reader stunned by its audacity

Perhaps that is the normalcy that the NJ electorate expects in their elected officials.Bring home the bacon (pardon the pun) and simply hold your nose.
