Culture and Sports Minister Limor Livnat (Likud-Beiteinu) had an encounter with an online sports reporter during a press conference, a reporter she said had run personal attacks on her, with a campaign of lies. She might be right for all I know. The great thing that ensued was that she used her press conference to […]

This is a video from one year ago (July 22, 2012), in which then candidate Yair Lapid is asked: Would you like to be the Minister of Finance? To which he answers: No, I would like to be involved in selecting the Minister of Finance, but I wouldn’t want the job. Because it should be […]

Sylvie Drake is retelling a very old husband-rabbi joke. According to Linkdin, Drake is Director of Publications at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts, and Advisor/editor at Denver Center Theatre Company. They’re doing Arthur miller’s Death of a Salesman in September. With Kevin Bacon. You see? It all ties up. I was just kidding […]

Mel Brooks does the Indian ichthyologist on “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson” in 1970. The SNL fans in the crowd will spot the roots of the Jaws sketch that was stolen, most likely, directly from this routine. Might as well steal from the great ones.

I wrote recently about the moment when your baby tastes ice cream for the first time, how his or her eyes light up, and they appear to be reevaluating their future on this strange, new planet, from a much more optimistic point of view. Anything a baby experiences for the first time must be an […]

I went looking for videos that would best fit the somber day of 17 b’Tammuz, and I went away feeling that if I embedded here one of those guy-sits-in-front-of-smartphone-camera clips, or even the better ones, I would just tire you out and you’ll never click on it to watch. So I plugged in the words […]

I’m not arguing with all the true facts being raised by Congressman Ron Paul – of course he’s right. Every single thing he’s saying makes perfect sense and should be paid attention to by our policymakers – and that’s the source of my despair. Because no one ever listens to Ron Paul. What’s the point […]

It was fascinating to watch this discussion, between Kuwaiti Scholar Jassem Al-Mutawa, who seems like a sweetie—if you manage to look across the many cultural divides—and another scholar, on the merits of disciplining one’s spouse. If we can overcome our essential disgust with the discussion of women as objects, it is interesting to see the […]
