Jon Corzine, Virtual Governor
Posted on Apr 23, 2007
Eleven days after a car accident nearly claimed his life, New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine was in stable enough condition to entertain the possibility of resuming work from his hospital bed. His staff is apparently looking into video-conferencing options for him to use when he is ready and able.

Meanwhile, since having a breathing tube removed on Friday, Corzine has been able to enjoy a few of life’s simpler pleasures: watching hockey on television and eating mashed potatoes.
Corzine has been at Cooper University Hospital since an April 12 car crash on the Garden State Parkway. He was in the front passenger seat, his seat belt unbuckled, when the state trooper driving him at about 90 mph was clipped by another truck that was swerving to avoid a third vehicle.
Corzine broke his left thigh bone, 11 ribs, a collarbone and his breastbone and had some other, more minor injuries.
