Then I emailed Doug a couple of questions from my boss:

1. Are you influenced by Lou Reed and the Ramones?

2. Where in Queens did you go to school? (He’s from Forest Hills)

3. Where did you go to high school, yeshiva, college?

Followed by my own, which came in response to an inquiry I had received from him moments before:

4. What are you doing up at 2:30 am NYC time?

Doug responded:

1. Can’t stand Lou Reed, especially after the album he just released with Metallica. Can’t mess with The Ramones cause I would be out of a job without them.

2. I grew up in Florida and I went to Hebrew Academy Miami for all 2 years of high school.

3. Went to Touro College

4. I have a HUGE meeting in the morning that I’m not allowed to talk about yet and I can’t sleep!

Now you know everything I know.

    As I pointed out in an earlier posting, the Groggers an “Orthodox” or “Frum” band. There is nothing Orthodox or frum about urging young Jewish men to get “nose jobs” in order to improve their chances of hooking up with (probably Gentile) “blondes.” The stereotype that Jewish noses are ugly and therefore need to be “fixed,” far from being frum or Orthodox, is antisemitic tref. As to wanting to hook up with “blondes?” Does anyone in their right mind imagine that this is “frum?” Shame, shame, shame on the Jewish Press!

  2. Adam Dalgliesh says:

    Correction–I meant to write that “The “Groggers” are not an Orthodox or frum band. Thanks for your patience. Adam.
