    Stonger then the Storm?

    New Jersey residents maybe \"stronger than the storm\", but it appears that some residents are not so intelligent. This decision could impact coastal communities, not just in New Jersey. <br /><br />\"But if the court sides with the Karans and the price they were awarded becomes a model for compensating other homeowners, the cost of future dune construction could become prohibitively expensive.\"<br /><br />http://www.newsworks.org//new-jersey...type=hp_impact

    My fault, fair enough.

    At first I was under the impression that the municipalities were trying to establish a permanent right-of-way to accommodate all future dune projects. If that were the case, then a $375K settlement MAY be warranted depending on the property.

    If these lunatics are receiving that kind of payment to offset their loss of property value based on the view alone, then I think everyone involved must be taking the same drugs Archy and Trevolution are!

    I have two words for those who want to arm the coast to protect their property: Strategic Retreat

    Rebuild, Rethink or Retreat? This is the topic of discussion for a series of forums NPR is organizing to discuss the state of the NJ coastline post-Sandy. Seems like a great idea to me. More info about the forums and how to register at: http://www.newsworks.org//c...sandy?Itemid=1

    I agree, everytime I hear that damn commercial I laugh and think, "No, you are not stronger than a storm, you are at the mercy of Mother Nature.

    While I laugh at the commercial, I want to clarify that I am not in any way finding humor in what happened to Jersey during Sandy. It could have easily hit my area and destroyed everything here

    More important to be "smarter than the storm" than stronger. Everybody is strong in this state, just look at the never-ending plastering of WOW stickers on every car. "Strong" is so yesterday people, come on already; Being Weak is in, and fashionably hip.

    Now if the Supreme Court can only fix the Asbury Park Circle, we'll be on our way! I generally change the lyrics and sing, "Cause we're weaker than the norm, oh ooooooooooo, oooooooooo, oh, oooooo" driving on that out-dated of a go-cart track they call the "Asbury Park Circle."

    Yes, for a $25 million marketing ad campaign, the song could be better, way better. Marketing at it's worst. A far better option would have been to go with something along these lines: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgQ5BJTSv9U Admit it, it's been way too long since you've heard this song. This whole post was just a lame excuse to somehow link this song in.

    Come on Chantal, send us some swell up here.
