Before he entered the worlds of finance and politics, Phil Murphy aspired to a musical acting career. The traditional “good luck” admonition to actors as they go onstage is “break a leg.”
As it turns out, every decent governor in the past 25 years, Corzine, McGreevey, and Whitman, has suffered a broken leg while in office. Chris Christie does not fall into this category because he has neither broken his leg or been a decent governor.
So as Governor Murphy works on his first full day in office, those of us at Blue Jersey are saying “Break a leg, Governor.” But please – only in the acting sense. We wish you well.
