It's the New Jersey of New York

Poor Long island gets no respect. A Times editorial this morning notes the upcoming reunion special that is being shopped around, featuring Amy Fisher, and Joey and Mary Jo Buttafuoco (as detailed here).

As it recounts the Long Island Lolita story, the editorial notes, "The South Shore of Long Island was something then. Nobody could touch Long Island for tabloid crime in those days, and people were raised right — they paid attention...It put Massapequa on the map."

Gold chains, Lolitas, Billy Joel driving into trees, and don't forget Jessica Hahn, another L.I. character. Today, let's pause to give thanks for the Long Island Sound, which provides us at least a little bit of a buffer.
