ah HA! another reason to love your show. We have a home in the Adirondacks and my kids (now in their 20's) have so many childhood memories of their summers at our camp. I wonder if we rent to you under an assumed name? haha I have several repeat renters.

Ms Oates also contributed to another excellent Jersey collection, "What's Your Exit?"

Sorry Joyce, but according to the NY Times, out of 3 measures NJ only even makes 1, and that's at #8.
So.....please stop spreading false stigmas about my state. Thank you

I don't understand Ms. Oates's use of "anatomizing" w/regard to crime. Is it a literary rather than a literal term?
