Seeing Old Friends

Yesterday, at religious services, I ran into someone I knew in my youth forty-five years ago when I was five years old. I had not seen him in at least a couple of decades. I do not think either of us had changed a bit. We saw each others' children for the first time and that took us back to the old JCC when we met then when we were our kids' age now. I will make it a point not to wait a couple of decades to renew acquaintance again.

Happy New Year

With all the recent natural disaster and tragedy, there might not be much to celebrate, but this is Jewish New Year. May this year be blessed with better health and peace.

Tragedy in Mexico

A powerful earthquake has just devastated Mexico City. Over two hundred are dead. More buildings are in danger of collapse. Pray for Mexico.

Spare Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is already suffering from an economic crisis. The US Territory does not need to sustain a hurricane of any sort. A Category Five with incredibly destructive power seems to be bearing down on the island. Pray that Maria turns away from Puerto Rico.

Banish United Nations

America should leave the UN and make that repository of corruption and antisemitism leave the US. The best thing Trump could tell the General Assembly today with its kleptocrats, autocrats, and Jew-haters is "get lost!"

Pro Football Plantation

I have heard professional football players in America complain that they are still on "the plantation". Do these athletes realize they are paid vastly more than most workers? They make more than most doctors who are presumptively saving human lives? These players are crazy not to recognize how lucky they are.

Ready to Condemn

The Prime Minister of Great Britain reserved some of her harshest criticism after the train bombings not for the terrorists but for President Donald Trump. The Prime Minister should focus on protecting her country at which she is not succeeding, not on smearing allies who are leading the fight to destroy the terrorists.
