Now THAT'S consolidation.

Posted By on Mon, Mar 24, 2008 at 3:08 PM

The governor of New Jersey, citing a budget crisis, is threatening to cut off state aid to "tiny" towns of under 10,000 unless they merge with neighboring communities. Economies of scale, etc.  From the Washington Post:

The battle has prompted some gallows humor. A blog called "New Jersey: Politics Unusual" speculated on possible new names for merged towns. For example, if Hillsdale, Mount Airy and Clinton merged, they could rename their new town "Hillary Clinton." And Ho-Ho-Kus could merge with Hoboken and become "Ho-Ho-Ho."
