Those of us from northeast NJ are familiar with the Democratic
machine controlled towns in Hudson and southeast Bergen counties,
where putting up a sign for a Republican candidate will get you a
visit from a high-ranking police official, who will ask you to
consider removing the "eyesore".

And Manx may just as well be able to pull off enough good things to
keep getting re-elected. Few of the crises we see on SK can be
directly attributed to him, and I suspect they don't happen nearly
as often as we see on the show - I seem to recall that when the old
show "S.W.A.T." was on TV a real LA-area SWATtie commented that the
guys on the show see more action in a week than his guys do in
several months (though that may have changed recently :).
