The Jew News Review – November 26, 2022 – World hic-Cup

Shabbat shalom! I hope everyone had a chance to kick back, enjoy some family and football, and are now completely recovered from tryptophan turkey comas and any other side effects induced from over consumption.  I know when I mention football, most of us will immediately think NFL, Mac Jones and what the hell is wrongContinue reading “The Jew News Review – November 26, 2022 – World hic-Cup”

The Jew News Review – November 19, 2022 – Pardon me

Shabbat shalom! And a happy Thanksgiving week to all my JNR friends! It was Abe Lincoln, historians note, who was the first President to pardon a Thanksgiving turkey, but apparently it was JFK who is credited with the first official White House pardoning. Unfortunately, that pardoned bird lived longer than JFK, who was assassinated 3Continue reading “The Jew News Review – November 19, 2022 – Pardon me”

The Jew News Review – November 12, 2022 – “Just once”

Shabbat shalom! Yesterday was Veterans Day, so a shout out to all the men and women, and their families, that serve or have served bravely in the defense of our country.

The Jew News Review – November 5, 2022 – “Alas, poor Israel….”

Shabbat shalom!  Another gorgeous weekend on tap here in New England, with potentially record breaking temperatures. What we used to call “Indian Summer”, but in the post woke world, perhaps we should say, “Indigenous Peoples Summer”?  “Hoist with his own petard” is what I am thinking, thanks Shakespeare. But why? Political “wokeness” is a slangContinue reading “The Jew News Review – November 5, 2022 – “Alas, poor Israel….””

The Jew News Review – October 29, 2022 – “Madness takes its toll…”

Shabbat shalom everyone!  It’s a beautiful fall weekend here in leafy New England! Perfect weather for me to jump in my new electric vehicle and head west for the UMass Amherst homecoming and halloween celebrations. Stepping back into Mr Peabody’s wayback machine, I vividly recall the UMass campus turning into one amazing costume party, repleteContinue reading “The Jew News Review – October 29, 2022 – “Madness takes its toll…””

The Jew News Review – October 15, 2022 – Spectrum of Stupid

Shabbat shalom! Happy Sukkot to all!  Shout out this week to the 12 people on the jury in Connecticut that awarded nearly $1 Billion to the families of the Sandy Hook massacre in the defamation law suit against right-wing conspiracy theorist and sub-human life form, Alex Jones.  And speaking of right-wing conspiracies, in a trulyContinue reading “The Jew News Review – October 15, 2022 – Spectrum of Stupid”

The Jew News Review – October 9, 2022 – Hackers and Lox Stars

Shabbat shalom everyone!  Short entry today as I am off to visit family and running late.  A story about lox in The Forward caught my eye this morning. Apparently a hacker decided to post an old story “The Raw Truth About Lox” on the Hacker News website, and low and behold, The Forward website sawContinue reading “The Jew News Review – October 9, 2022 – Hackers and Lox Stars”

The Jew News Review – October 1, 2022 – “I feel the earth move”

Shabbat shalom!  Mother nature struck Florida with a vengeance this week, leaving a horrifying path of destruction and devastation that is hard to fathom. The only good news (if you can call it that) to emerge from this disaster is that we did not have to put up with an orange moron throwing paper towelsContinue reading “The Jew News Review – October 1, 2022 – “I feel the earth move””
