Italian-Americans are the most vocal Jersey Shore critics, but the show is also ruining the lives of actual Jersey Shore residents. Locals say the show is "embarrassing and insulting" and fear the influx of Snooki-wannabees expected this summer. [WSJ]
When I was a journalist I spent 18 months with Seaside Heights as my "beat."
Trust me, nothing could make that town any worse. This is a place where people are actually murdered during arguments over whether coke or pepsi tastes better with rum.
It's also a town that hires a shitload of "special police" every summer who are actually goons whose only job is to beat the shit out of drunk people.
