Question: Are you satisfied with Eliot Spitzer’s performance as governor?

 

 


No. Perhaps Spitzer has become more of a media target as governor – before his election he had such a squeaky clean reputation but it seems like everything we read about him in the press lately is bad. He has pros and cons like any other person in office. 

-Nachi Kleinman, student



 

 



Yes. He understands and sympathizes with the middle class and always tries to go after monopolies and conglomerates. I understand that he was criticized for trying to discredit State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno by using the State Police, but Nixon did the same thing and for a while he was a popular president. Spitzer and Nixon seem to share the same political paranoia, but I still view Spitzer as “the people’s lawyer.”

-Joseph Stern, student



 

 



No. I can never look at him the same way again after what’s gone on recently. That he would even consider granting illegal immigrants driver’s licenses is absurd. Illegal is the key word here; he would have legitimized illegal behavior. In addition, the whole controversy with Bruno, when his administration used the police for political purposes, shows he isn’t above undermining democracy.

- Izzie Fink, office manager



 

 



No. I remember that whenever my grandmother had consumer issues she would quickly call Spitzer’s office. I was excited when he ran for governor because New York needs a tough politician in office; lately, however, I’ve become disillusioned with him. He is a stubborn man who, it seems, must have things go his way. He is a good lawyer, but he expresses himself in the wrong manner. Right now my opinion of him has changed. 

-Mordechai Karczag, student

In a time when service to one’s community seems to be a forgotten ideal, it is our pleasure to continue sharing with you the stories of those men and women who were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.

The Jewish Press recently sat down with Chaya Lipschutz, a Brooklyn woman who saved the life of a stranger.

In the past, people used to turn to coffee or orange juice to get through a midday slump, but today, many are turning to power and energy drinks for a quicker and longer-lasting jolt. The power drink industry is booming with projected sales of $9 billion and no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

Every week nearly three million viewers tune into the Bravo cable channel to watch the hit reality franchise “The Real Housewives” – several shows that follow the lives of affluent housewives and professional women residing in several American metropolitan areas (“The Real Housewives of New York,” “The Real Housewives of Los Angeles,” of Miami, of Atlanta, etc.).

Not too many Jewish World War II survivors from Germany can say that they had the distinction of being both interned in a concentration camp and liberating the captives in that same camp. Erwin Weinberg did just that.

Recently I had the opportunity to spend some times with Bernard (Bernie) Walz and get a glimpse of his war experiences.

As I approached the home of Irving and Miriam Borenstein in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn, two things became clear: the pride they feel at being Jewish and their joy at living in America. On their front lawn are large American and Israeli flags with a plaque in front which reads:

Never forget the six million murdered in the Holocaust and the three thousand murdered on 9/11.

May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.
