Question: What’s on your Summer reading list?

 

 


Believe it or not, I’m not much of a reader. I have, however, spent the past few weeks plowing through a difficult but rewarding book. The title escapes me just now, but at first I thought the main character was based on me. His name? Curious George. Have you heard of him?


George W. Bush, president of the United States

 

 

 


The World Is Flat by Thomas Friedman, because I’ve always suspected that’s true. I am also looking into mass ordering The Book Of Useless Information by Noel Botham for our new curriculum. 


 Yuli Tamir, Israeli minister of education

 

 

 

 


As everyone knows, I’d been a loser in the political arena for a very long time. I never thought I would win an election, especially at age 83, but after picking up Rhonda Bryne’s The Secret, I willed my recent victory through the laws of attraction that surge through the positive energy I emit. I’m also loving God Is Not Great by that brilliant atheist Christopher Hitchens, because organized religion is the root of all our conflicts and should have no place in my country.


 Shimon Peres, president of Israel

 

 

 

 


When CBS News hired me as anchor, I started reading Great Expectations by Charles Dickens for inspiration. Currently, with the steep decline in my ratings, I’m engrossed in Woman at Point Zero by Nawal El Sadaawi. Dan Rather has recommended I read Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. If my ratings don’t pick up soon, I’ll have time to read Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. Just joking — I hope.

Katie Couric, CBS News anchor

 

 

 

 


A book I can relate to is Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman. I conquered the real estate and business worlds with my expansion of Trump Towers and casinos; Trump Steaks have revolutionized the way the culinary world thinks of meat; and no one in the bottled water industry can copy the distinct flavor of Trump Ice spring water. Let’s face it – I’m unbeatable.


 Donald Trump, mogul

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.

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.
