I am based at the Jersey shore and write about Atlantic City, beach culture, local politics, power grabs and, reluctantly, Miss America. I also sometimes go to Philly for stories. And once, Minneapolis.
The post-Halloween squall that tore through the Philadelphia area literally severed the bust of artist Miguel Horn's father's head, leaving the work of art stuck on its right ear in the muck of the boat basin.
Marty Small Sr., an Atlantic City native and voracious Eagles fan, is another product of A.C. High basketball and the city's incestuous political scene. But who will ex-Mayor Frank Gilliam's power brokers and donors flock to now?
