We in the Bronx, years ago, used to refer to New Jersey as the armpit of America.

New Yorkers think that they are tougher, stronger, smarter, better, more cultured and above everyone else in the country. After 9/11, the rest of the country overlooked this ever-present disdain and condescension and poured in money, support and prayers. It took a surprisingly short amount of time for the New York attitude to reassert itself afterwards. This time I gave nothing. Let them prove how tough and resourceful they are on their own. They don't need us when things are going well so they don't need us when they get knocked down either.

Let me say on the record that I don’t really care about New Jersey. I know very little about it. But, I know this much: I don’t want to live there and I don’t want the rest of the United States to resemble New Jersey.

For me New Jersey is the Joe Piscopo character asking anyone and everyone “Are you from Jersey? I’m from Jersey.”

Also, I’ve never seen the TV show “Jersey Shore,” but still I don’t like it. And know that I don’t want the rest of the country to resemble it, either.

It’s the state that elected...
