The Curse of Julius Caesar

Funny, a couple of days ago I mentioned that NJ is known for it's political corruption and then, Bam! Two NJ mayors have been arrested on corruption charges yesterday. Why?

Well, it's what I have decided is the curse of Julius Caesar. Since the assassination of Julius Caesar the Italians haven't had a competent long lasting government. And let's face it that curse has traversed the Atlantic Ocean. A bunch of Italian immigrants settled in NJ and ever since the garden state has had dead people voting multiple times. Perhaps if some country trades a great baseball player to the Italians for relative pennies the curse can be broken and we no longer will have money laundering mayors or Goldman Sachs alum governors.

Or maybe if we trade pizza for moral integrity. That's never going to happen. Pizza is too good.
