I can not think of a traffic spot that more people talk, complain or wince about more than our very own Asbury Circle. It brings blood to the boiling point on a daily basis.

They say that anger and pain has been behind some of the greatest art that was ever made, so I thought I'd write a little poem to the Asbury Circle. Maybe it would help me vent my frustration in a more constructive way, not that I consider bird flipping or cursing not constructive.

So this is what I came up with. Let's see if this does anything to help us deal with the Circle From Hell in a better way. Enjoy.

You are the center of it all

The black hole in the dark

The dreaded Circle of Hell

In beautiful Asbury Park.


You draw your victims from everywhere

Anyone who has to drive

You terrorize equally 

On 66, Asbury Ave. and Route 35.


You thrive on the bedlam

You love confusion and pain

You randomly choose victims

While we can't get into our lane.


You laugh at us all

Turmoil makes your day

And before we know it

We're driving the wrong way.


Oh, Asbury Circle

What you do isn't right.

You make us wish

You were just another traffic light.


There were definitely other things I wanted to say, but I tried my best to keep it family friendly. Imagine that. Keeping the Asbury Circle conversation family friendly. That's almost as tough as getting from Asbury Ave to Rote 35 South.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
