I'm sick of people saying Columbus didn't discover America

That's like saying, I didn't discover the male G-Spot.

Sure, there were rumors about it before, but no white man had ever gone there before.

Print Your Southwest Ticket Without Your Printer

When you buy your ticket for Southwest Airlines, don't bother printing out your ticket at home. Do the express check-in with your credit card then say yes when it asks if you want to print a ticket. PS: I know a Valley Jew who was once on a Southwest flight with Tupac Shakur.

Roots (For JEWS!)

The Ellis Island Foundation has an amazing website where you can search for relatives who traveled through the center on their journey through America.

I instantly found 508 people with my last name, including the very intriguing Adolf Sattler.

Why We Must Engage Iran

Thomas P.M. Barnett, the author of The Pentagon's New Map, points to two editorials that confirm what he already knows: U.S. policy has buttressed the Iranian regime, which has justified its monopoly of power as a means of fending off external enemies and managing an economy under international duress.

Productivity Boost: How to start your day at 5:00 AM

Some people would rather wake up at 10:00 AM than be successful. But we all go through phases where you want to get things done other than your 9-5, and early mornings are the best option. I'm waking up at 5 AM now (trying to move it a minute each day closer to 4:30), and I feel great. Of course, I did go to bed at 8 PM last night.

Yay! My Google/Blogger Account Connects to Digg

A massive thank you to the Digg team for fixing the error that converting my Blogger account to a Google account created.

I can now blog straight from Digg again. And the world will never be the same. It'll be similar. It will look the same. People will dress the same. Presidential candidate John Edwards may get a new haircut. But it won't be the same. I promise.

Jobs for Jews: writer for bat mitzvah

Reply to: laurenicki@aol.com
Date: 2007-02-04, 4:59PM PST

Hi there - we have twin daughters with an upcoming bat mitzvah in which I will need to present the tallit and say a little something about my girls.
I am looking for someone who can draft a short presentation for me since I don't write well. Coming up with ideas and putting my feelings into words. If you are Jewish and know the meaning of bat mitzvah, that would help.

If you are interested, I'd love to hear from you -

Thanks much -

Sad Admission

I've taken to fast-forwarding through the Africa AIDS stories on the NewsHour.

'Wave of Hatred' Hitting British Jews

Anti-Semitic incidents were up one third in the UK this year.

"Incidents ranged from the unprovoked stabbing of a Jewish man in north London to the sending of hate mail and the vandalism of Jewish cemeteries and synagogues."

I encourage everyone to love a Jew this weekend if you can. We have to raise the love by a third to keep up.

The Best Web Controversy Ever

I love that people think this video might be a effort of a sincere right-wing organization.

This assertion make several points:

1. Points out how ridiculous the right-wing must seem to most people.
2. Implies that a right-wing group would support an argument that basically says, "Hey, we get it. Cock is alluring, but don't go there! Or God will hate you."
3. Reminds me of how uninformed people are if they think there's a right wing group can do anything with this much pizazz!

The Jew Will Be Back-- Big Time!

I used to love blogging straight from Digg about the stories that interested me.

That romance was ended when I converted my Blogger account into a Google account.

After a long delay, it looks like I'll be back in the warm embrace of Digg's Blogging tool by Valentine's Day.

Straight from the Digg Help team:

Blogger currently doesn't work with digg. We expect the fix for it to go live on Monday.

--digg support

It's on.
