Beware of the paranoids Beware of the paranoids To the editor:

I was reading a book titled, “The Paranoid” by David Swanson, M.D., et al. This book was written in 1970. It is the most complete analysis of this subject written for laymen that I have been able to find to date; it seems that very little new work has been done in this field.

One major part of the paranoid character is that “the paranoid’s omnipresent anger and the indigent conviction that he is correct take precedence over knowledge of potential risk.”

The State of New Jersey has given us the run-around on a full Garden State Parkway interchange on Route 30 for decades, despite the economic and public safety benefits it would provide to the residents of Galloway, Absecon, and the barrier islands. Ever since I've been on council, I've urged the Turnpike Authority to pursue an interchange, but to no avail.
