Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘Sandy’ edition


Hurricane Sandy blew everything up. The shoreline of New Jersey was permanently altered. Seaside Heights and Hoboken are underwater. Half of Manhattan has no electricity. The Breezy Point neighborhood in Queens was completely destroyed. And nearly 40 people lost their lives.

But Sandy did some other things. The presidential race was frozen in place with President Obama being president and Mitt Romney trying to adjust. Old enmities became new alliances as Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) stopped flame-throwing the president to praise him for his help -- over and over again.

Sandy provided a tragic end to October. But you can get your last weekend before Election Day off to a good start with the p-Op quiz. So sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
