Welcome to NJ
Spurning the idyllic Garden State scenes typically used to greet New Jersey visitors, a disgruntled developer has erected a jarring red-letter billboard at the foot of the Delaware Memorial Bridge: "Welcome to New Jersey: A horrible place to do business."

Mount Laurel builder William Juliano says the sign - posted just in time for high season at the Jersey Shore - is his revenge against the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The billboard sits atop a Pennsville Hampton Inn that Juliano owns, next to a vacant property where the developer had planned a Home Depot until the DEP told him it was a protected wetlands area.

I know nothing of his situation, but I find it amusing.
