New York Times Scandal??? What Scandal?

The New York Times Scandal? What scandal? Whatever can you mean?

Holocaust Remembrance Day Is Meaningless

Yesterday was Holocaust Remembrance Day. And much as I hate to say it, it’s meaningless. Almost to the point of farce. Because it has no meaning. Let’s look at few of today’s cartoons. Let’s look at Germany’s Angela Merkel first. She made the usual poignant speech about how it is [Read More]

Ah, driving in New York City! I recently had the opportunity to spend a week in New York City for a wedding. We had a rental car and I did a fair amount of driving in the non-Manhattan parts of NYC, so I was able to appreciate first hand the [Read More]

The events commemorated in the Purim celebration may have occurred more than 2,500 years ago, but the message to honor God not man remains relevant today.
