Those are pretty good picture of NJ. I never really got the bad rep that NJ has had. Call me crazy but I think NJ people are okay in my book;I've never had a problem with them (I don't live there so I don't know).

Most of our ads and signs, including the voting machines, were in English and Spanish.

I wonder why the Hispanic population hasn't migrated to Georgia given it borders Florida?
The Hispanic population has exploded in Georgia over the past 20 years but due to how many are illegal (especially outside the Atlanta area) the population stats haven't really reflected this. My hometown in South Georgia I would guess is easily 25 percent Hispanic but statistically is way way less than that.

If you shop at the local Wal-Mart there (don't laugh New Jersey, Yeah I said Wal-Mart) on a Sunday you will see more Mexicans than Blacks or Whites.

There is also a large number or Cubans.
