Apollo 4 on column of fire

They're not kidding, because it's news to me

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gateway_Region

‘The Gateway Region is located in the northeastern part of State of New Jersey in the United States of America. The area encompasses Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, Union and Middlesex counties.… The designation has not caught on in local parlance, as the topography and self-identification of the residents tend not to correspond to the collective name.’

Of course, I’ve been living a thousand miles to the west for the last 19 years, so I don’t hear everything that’s going on in the former colonies.
