  2. Can’t be Ridgewood kid.

  3. They need to spend some time in Pooch’s meditation room and Aronsohns civility meetings

  4. What do you expect. A fair number of RHS students have no sense of responsibility towards others or property. Mommy and Daddy will always step in and make it right. Get arrested and most parents will just pay a substantial fine rather than see their little darling go through a court hearing which might actually discourage them from doing the the misdemeanor behaviour again.

  5. From what I hear, many SUV’s in town will soon be sporting posters of Albert Pucciarelli with bold letters stating that he is the only person in town with a full time job. This will be cause for fender benders as people all over town crack up laughing.

  6. Read “Our Guys: The Glen Ridge Rape and the Secret Life of the Perfect Suburb” by Bernard Lefkowitz. Hardly equating vandalism with rape but as a devastating study of coddled amoral rich kids in suburban New Jersey it does ring a bell. It’s a real page turner by one of the reporters who covered the story. The book is owned by 30 BCCLS libraries–perhaps tellingly, not including ours–and is available on the shelf at all except…yes, the one in Glen Ridge, where somebody has taken it out.
