As a Piscataway resident, like Paul, I remember that bill board very well. I've been following his career and am very happy for his success. Piscataway was founded in 1666 - neither Paul or me have been here quite that long (although, to me, sometimes it does feel that way) but Piscataway is doing well and he is always welcome to come back for an updated tour of his home town.

Fifteen-year resident of NJ, transplant from Brooklyn. Paul Rudnick is a genius. Laughed so hard during work--people starting staring.

Thanks
