      “Effluent.” Ha!

    • Plumber

      Thanks for the correction grammar police belittle a man for trying to get a point across that's more important

        Former English teacher. I try not to do that and I honestly meant no disrespect. I thought you were making a joke by using effluent. I thought it was funny.

  • HankMorgan

    Same to you. Very few people care enough to contribute to the issues that face the city. I couldn’t agree with you more about the greedy pols who run Paterson.
