Joel Shannon USA TODAY Published 5:51 p.m. UTC Sep 3, 2018 Activists including David Hogg — a survivor of the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting — have reached their fundraising goal for a mobile billboard that will take aim at President Donald Trump's support of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz's reelection campaign. The planned sign will feature Trump tweets that are critical of Cruz, written during the President's 2016 campaign. At the time, Cruz was a political rival but has since proven to be an ally on most issues. Cruz is in a competitive race for his seat against Democrat Beto O'Rourke. On Friday, Trump promised to campaign for Cruz in October at "the biggest stadium in Texas we can find." More: Parkland student activist David Hogg thanks NRA on Twitter.

SunPass has been beset with problems since the start of an “system upgrade” in early June. (Lannis Waters / The Palm Beach Post) A former boss of mine was fond of saying: “You know technology is working the way it should when you don’t have to think about it.” I’m reminded of this because like tens of thousands of Florida drivers these days, I’ve been wondering what the heck is going on with SunPass — the state’s automatic billing/collecting platform for toll roads from Wildwood to Wilton Manors. Sign up for The Palm Beach Post weekly Opinion newsletter: Text Opinion to 444999 You see, if you drive a good amount for work or pleasure — especially between Interstate 4 and Alligator Alley — SunPass is one of those “conveniences” that we’ve all come to despise and depend on every day.That’s why the mess that has been made of the online toll system since June 1 has got so many drivers who frequent … [Read more...] about Christie: Can Florida drivers get a pass from SunPass?… I hope so.
Charles Stile NorthJersey Published 12:09 p.m. UTC Jul 23, 2018 Gov. Chris Christie is penning a tell-all memoir about his "wild ride" from Trenton to the brief stint at the summit of Trump world and then crashing back down to the unfriendly snake pit of the Statehouse, where everybody counted the hours before his departure. The book, due out early next year, will be called "Let Me Finish,'' but knowing Christie, "Let Me Start Settling Scores" might be a more appropriate title. Christie's enemies list could very well fill the book's index. But if the book is anything like most political memoirs, it looms as a self-serving, one-sided defense of his tenure relying on facts that make him shine while omitting the blots that darken his place in history. The political memoir is often a notch above propaganda. To offer the reading public and posterity a more well-rounded portrait, here are a few lingering questions Christie might want to consider … [Read more...] about Chris Christie plans tell-all.
