I must admit that I may have been infected with society's prejudices and predilections and attributed them to God . . . and that in years hence I may be seen as someone who was on the wrong side of history.  I don't believe such doubts make me a bad Christian.  I believe they make me human . . .

Isn't nearly all of the Chicago lakefront essentially built on a landfill?

Are you serious? I don't what you know about NJ or Rutgers but you're seriously mistaken

No, TTT was right.  The entire state of NJ is one giant landfill.  At this point they don't even try to cover up the garbage.  Fact: NJ has more toxic waste dump sites than any other state (including NV).

Villanova's underrated I think?  I'm biased though because the reason I think that is that I'm going there.

When you study the Dormant Commerce Clause in your 1L Con Law class, you may end up reading City of Philadelphia v. New Jersey, 437 U.S. 617 (1978). The case is basically about New Jersey being so full of garbage that the state legislature passed a statute banning any garbage coming in from out of state. Penn and NY sued b/c they liked dumping their garbage in New Jersey instead of their own landfills.

Jersey lost.

Oh my beloved home state. On the plus side, we are the wealthiest or second wealthiest state in the union in any given year.

We have the highest median income of any state, the highest percentage of HS students going onto college, and the highest percentage of people with higher education.

And we don't have to pump our own gas.

I'll take my landfill, thanks.

Are you talking about new jersey? Cuz CT def has the highest per capita income, and median family income. Fairfield county is the richest county in the country, even with bridgeport which is a ridiculously poor city (in the top ten) - though it is also the county with the most HS drinking...

We have swapped places for those honors several times, hence my caveat.
