I have no idea if Jeb Bush has ever been to Nigeria or if he has an interest in that country. However, when I read an article about election absurdities taking place in Nigeria, as improbable as it sounds, I thought of Governor Bush.   On the surface, this sounds ridiculous. It may be no more...

Hey Good Looking

I enjoy British and European movies because they frequently feature real-looking stars.  The actors in those foreign films often resemble the sort of people you might see in an airport or bus station whereas most Hollywood entertainment seems to star only humans of indescribable beauty and rare good looks.  I enjoy looking at beautiful people...

BFF: Best Friends Forever

Right now, we are in the middle of the Biblical festival of Passover. Without exception, it is the most widely observed Jewish ritual practice even among those many Jews in whose ears the eternal words of the Torah fail to resonate.  Why would this be?
