Professional Wives

There’s been quite a brouhaha going on over at Forbes Magazine. It all started when author Michael Noer published an on-line article with a pretty provocative opener. “Guys: A word of advice.

Watching Seattle Mariners beating the Yankees

Last night my daughter, Miriam, and I joined over 40,000 other fans of the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field in Seattle. We watched from the sky-suite of The Crocker Group as Adrian Beltre gave the Mariners a victory over the New York Yankees in a heart-stopping, game-winning home run in the ninth inning. Last night’s

The Lure of the Ostrich

One of our daughters broke out in a pretty impressive head to toe rash a few days ago. While the likely culprit appeared to be an allergic reaction, we had helpful sibling suggestions ranging from typhoid to scarlet fever to smallpox. The banter was actually pretty funny (I realize the humor doesn’t translate to print)

The words “A safer society for all” aren’t my own. They are quoted by the Seattle Times as being said by Dayna Klein, one of the women shot at the Jewish Federation building of Seattle about three weeks ago. I certainly am sorry for her suffering and share her goal of having a safer society.

Why mostly Muslims seem to kill over cartoons, or pretty much anything else

Callers to my radio show www.ksfo.com frequently ask me why Muslims are so quick to kill. Before anyone knew that the name of the pistol-packing shooter at Seattle’s Jewish Federation building on July 28th was Naveed Afzal Haq, it was not hard to guess that he was a son of the desert. If one hears

Israel comings and goings

Our son, Ari, arrived home Wednesday night after six weeks of being a volunteer EMT working as part of an ambulance crew for the Magen David Adom, Israel’s version of the Red Cross. We have yet to hear his stories, but I will admit to joy at having him at home, where I can more
