Steven Johnson had everything in place for a late-night surf and turf snack and a nightcap early Thursday morning: steak cooling on the stove, clams and shrimp in the refrigerator and bottles of coconut rum and vanilla vodka chilling in the freezer.
The 24-year-old does not live at the 339 William St. home, but his snacking did not seem to bother the couple fast asleep on the living room couch.
So, on his way out, Mr. Johnson made himself a to-go bag.
Just as Mr. Johnson walked out of the kitchen, the man on the couch, Phillip Schwartz, woke up and watched him head out the door and called the police, according to a criminal complaint filed by city police Officer Melissa Forsette.
Editor’s note: Very interesting election analysis regardless of which side you are on. Shows the differences between McCain and Romney’s efforts in their respective run for President again Obama.
President Obama carried fewer states than he did four years ago. He won a second term by dominating the nation’s large urban areas — although mostly by smaller margins compared to his 2008 vote totals.
The political commentator lives up to his name not because he predicted a Mitt Romney electoral college romp, although that’s probably reason enough. But nope. Reason is because of his blog post about why he was so miserably wrong in his prediction.
“I did not take full account of the impact of hurricane Sandy and of Governor Chris Christie’s bipartisan march through New Jersey arm in arm with President Obama,” Morris wrote. “Not to mention Christie’s fawning promotion of Obama’s presidential leadership. It made all the difference.”
To recap: Morris blames Romney’s loss on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Many Republicans are also starting to believe this line of reasoning.
