Great News! Donations to Liberal Organization are Soaring

This might strike you as strange, but I think the fact that individual donations to liberal organizations, including Planned Parenthood, are increasing is great news. Not because I support these organizations and want them to have funds to carry out their objectives; I don’t. However, the increase in donations reflects a fear that government funds...

New Year – Old Year

When I was nine, I saved up every penny to fulfill my yearning for an electric train.  Finally, I ran to the hobby store.

Do as I Do, Not as I Say

Years ago, the little yeshiva in Skokie, Illinois, had a pathetic basketball team.  Just a bunch of slightly nerdy kids stumbling around the court.  Their star forward  dribbled like a drunk trying to stomp a cockroach.  They were so low in the Jewish schools’ league that they usually fell off the bottom of the page....

Always Bad News

Our friend, Michael Medved, often points out that the media thrives on bad news. This can give you a skewed and pessimistic view of life. I had to chuckle when I saw the Wall Street Journal main headline today, “Dollar Rise Triggers Global Turmoil.” Not, “The Dollar Is Doing Great,” or “Confidence Soars with Trump’s...
