Chronicles Of Crises In Our Communities

Is this world crazy or am I?

Seen it all!

Dear Seen,

Yes, I’ve noticed and have had the same thoughts many a time. Not for naught does our religion teach and stress the laws of tznius. That said, even the secular world is aware that females who seem to have the need to let it all hang out are either desperately lacking in self-respect or self-worth or both — not to mention that in today’s world too much emphasis is placed on the physical and too many people allow themselves to be swayed by outward appearances.

Speaking about looks and lawsuits and the strange times we live in, it doesn’t get much weirder than the lawsuit that was recently filed by a man in China against his wife for deceiving him.

True story: A handsome man and his pretty woman had a baby girl who, as it happened, was exceptionally unattractive. The husband was miffed and suspected his wife of cheating on him with another man, until she admitted that it was she who was probably to blame for their unsightly offspring.

Turned out she had been an ugly duckling herself before spending $100,000 for intricate plastic surgery to transform herself into a beautiful swan. Of course when she met her husband-to-be, she kept that bit of information to herself.

Hubby subsequently file for divorce and sued. The judge sided with him, citing that she had married him under false pretenses. The victimized husband was awarded $120,000 in damages.

Getting back to your issue, on-the-job dress codes might be one way to curb naughty behavior to some degree, and schools would be wise to institute rules that would keep scantily dressed girls from contaminating their hallways.

Thanks for sharing.

Over the course of the next couple of weeks we were planning our daily schedule by the minute. At any second we would have to change our plans. It was understood by everyone on the bus that this was not the normal agenda for the summer, but we still managed to have a ridiculous amount […]

Though if you do have a schach mat, you’ll realize that it cannot actually support the weight of the water.
