    this shit hit my area pretty ****in hard. Bruce and Bon Jovi have done so much charity work for the shore and for people in need for years. Going to school with Bon Jovi's kids (Rumson, NJ) we all really got to see first hand how great these guys are, and this is another great thing they've done to help the people.
    I'm sure Jon & Bruce will make sure to call for higher taxes to help in spite of them both dodging NJ property taxes by declaring most of their acres of land agricultural because they claim to be "bee farmers". Yeah, it's true...
