A word on words

The Sunlight Foundation reports Sen. Robert Menendez is, by far, the most outspoken member of New Jersey's delegation in Washington. His statements on the floor and in the Congressional Record outpace fellow Democrat Sen. Frank Lautenberg almost 3-to-1.

The list at the foundation's website,, left me wondering why we see so little about what Menendez says in any media at the Jersey Shore.

Of the words New Jersey's delegation speaks most often on the record, the word "billion" comes up more quite a bit often than the word "women." Sad.
