  • This Year Was a Shanda
    From prostitutes to Ponzi schemes, this wasn't a great year for Jewish politicians or notable persons.  In fact, if a Jew was in the news it was probably a bad thing, but I guess that doesn't exactly...
  • Thoughts on Plaxico
    I root for the New York Football Giants and as such I've been doing some thinking about the recent Plaxico Burress situation.  If you don't know, Burress is the star wide receiver who shot himself in...
