That's my boy

At midnight Yakov called to discuss the State of the Union speech with me. Normally I would have been asleep at that time but I had only been home a little while. Last night was my monthly book club and I had not heard the speech. I'm hoping he will call again after I have had time to read the speech, my preferred media anyway. And I hope I don't get another heart-stopping ring at midnight for the discussion. But any phone call is welcome. It feels good to share their enthusiasm whether for science experiments or politics.

Please help Noach with his Civics Project.

He is doing a public opinion poll on a few controversial issues. There are only 5 questions, so it will only take a minute. Thanks for your time. PRM

Jewish women

had a bad weekend with the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and also the death of Debbie Friedman. I will not comment on the tragedy in Tucson except to say that if you let mentally ill people have ready access to firearms, especially a Glock that can kill people, quickly and in large numbers, then you are going to have mentally ill people who commit these kinds of crime.I always hoped to see a Debbie Friedman concert. Our synagogue has been using her melody for the Me Shebeirach for the last few years. Shalom Rav is a personal favorite also. Her voice will be missed. PRM
