“Stronger Than the Storm”

New Jersey’s big summer advertising  campaign this year is “stronger than the storm.”  It’s the state’s way of telling summer beach-goers that even after Hurricane Sandy, the beaches are ready for them, their frisbees, and their obnoxious children.

And it’s also a way to use state and federal money to pay for Governor Chris Christie to be on television a lot during a year when he’s running for re-election (and also preparing to run for President, heaven help us all, in 2016).

But “stronger than the storm”?  Really?  A bunch of mostly wealthy people with government-subsidized insurance for seven-figure second homes are “stronger than the storm”?

Not likely, but The Curmudgeon will tell you someone who was REALLY stronger than the storm.

Noah.

That’s right, Noah.  Now THERE’S a guy who never let the wind and rain deter him and who was stronger than the storm.Noah
