As of July 1, it will be illegal to drive while talking on a handheld cell phone in New Jersey, according to the legislation Gov. James E. McGreevey signed on Jan. 20.

Use of a handheld cell phone will be a secondary violation, meaning a driver can only be penalized for it if pulled over for something else, like speeding. […]

Well folks, it’s that time of year again – when the bigwigs behind the biggest films of the year butt heads to take home a golden statue of a nude man holding a sword. Actors and actresses compete to come up with the longest running, driest and/or most politically offensive speech of the evening. […]

If you’re from New Jersey, chances are you have a diner. Anyone that heralds from this amazing state can give an answer to the famous question, “What’s your diner?” While in South Jersey, I live closest to the Starview Diner but prefer the Philly Diner.

College and high school students gather in diners across the state to catch up with friends, hang out over a cheap cup of coffee or to nurse a hangover. […]

The New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers played some great football during Sunday night’s Super Bowl XXXVIII, but all anyone can seem to talk about is Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s jaw-dropping half-time performance.

At the end of the “Rock your body” duet when Timberlake sings, “Better have you naked by the end of this song,” Timberlake ‘accidently’ ripped off a piece of Janet’s outfit, revealing her breast to 89 million viewers around the world. […]
