2. Who knows or cares? It happened, he broke his leg, he's OK, Imus
and the Rutgers team had their meeting.
It's done, and I hope it all fades away fast, so we can concentrate on this admin and Iraq.

5. Maybe youshould checkthe more recent threads about just how bad
Corzine was hurt. Yes he has a broken leg, but he also has 6 broken ribs on each side, a fractured sternum, damage to his vertibrae, a broken collar bone, and something else I can't remember.

I too want to concentrate on the screwups of this admin and how they are still screwing up the Iraq war, but his injuries can't just be dismissed as "he broke his leg, and he's OK". With allthose broken bones, I think we should all be saying "WE HOPE he will be OK."

7. Oh, don't bang your head so hard. You heard the first reports,
and that's all they mentioned...his broken leg.

Let's just all hope he gets well soon and without too much pain.

8. His condition is "critical but stable"; his doctor is saying he's "lucky to be alive"

New Jersey Governor Is Injured in Car Crash

(snip)

He has what we call multisystemic injuries, Robert F. Ostrum, Coopers director of orthopedic trauma, who led the surgical team, said in a midnight briefing for reporters here. Injuries to his chest, lungs, to his legs, and he lost a significant amount of blood. Asked whether Mr. Corzine was lucky to be alive, Dr. Ostrum said: Yes.

Mr. Corzine is scheduled for two more operations, Saturday and Monday, to clean up the wounds, Dr. Ostrum said, adding that it would be days to weeks until he was lucid enough to conduct state business, and three to six months before he could get around fairly well. Though the governor sustained a cut on his forehead, Dr. Ostrum said a CAT scan showed no brain injury.

Richard J. Codey, the State Senate president and a Democrat like Mr. Corzine, stepped in as acting governor during the surgery, and is expected to remain in charge as long as Mr. Corzine is hospitalized.

9. I'm glad Cody is stepping in, but doesn't NJ have a Pub Lt. Gov?
I always thought the Lt. Gov. was like the VP, and HE would step in when theGov.(Prez) wasn't able to perform his duties? I'm glad it didn't work that way,but maybe I'm thinking of a different State????

13. No - NJ does not have a Lt Governor
Under the NJ constitution the senate president becomes acting governor.

There was a proposal to amend the constitution to provide for a lt governor but I do not know where that stands.

11. Wasn't wearing his seatbelt
He probably wouldn't have been hurt nearly as bad if he'd had it on.

15. That's right, and he will get a ticket for it too...
...which is fine with me.

When will people figure out that it doesn't matter who you are, you cannot repeal the laws of physics! And furthermore, as the governor of a state, don't you have an obligation to follow the laws you're in charge of?

Anyway -- I do hope he has a speedy and complete recovery.

12. He broke is thigh bone in 2 places, and the bone had pierced the skin. He's been operated on for it,
but will need an additional operation.
