I remember the beauties of New Jersey, including the Princeton area during and right after WWII, as I remember the beauties of Northern Virginia. Both areas, and I am sure countless others, have been destroyed by mini malls, housing, commerce, and the wrong kind of people in the wrong places. What a shame! But that is what they call progress. Progress! I remember walking the battle field of Manassas a few years ago in the summer heat and seeing mini malls and gas stations all around. Look at what Hightstown has become, near Princeton! Look around you and weep.
