I don't have time to get down all my thoughts on the latest episode of 24; read Jamie Samuelsen for his. I agree with most (though not all) of what he wrote. It's just that I need to share my son's observation: Jack will take the captured soldier and Hassan and turn Hassan in to the terrorists. Dramatically, there was no need to spare any of the special forces guys, unless he'll play a role later on. And establishing that President Hassan is deft with firearms, foreshadows that he'll have an active role in future action. I think my son's...

Jewish blogging this week

Posted: 04 Apr 2010 04:14 PM PDT

Thanks to Super Raizy for hosting this week's Haveil Havalim and linking to a post of mine! If you have a chance read Treppenwitz's contribution. Maybe it sounds sadly familiar. I have a lot of catching up to do with Jewish blogging carnivals. If you need a hand, check out the Carnival section of JewPI. BTW, you never know where you'll see KCC....

Ny times approves of tea parties

Posted: 04 Apr 2010 08:30 AM PDT

In a juxtaposition of photographs, the New York Times compares a Tea Party protest to a Weatherman protest of some 40 years ago. Gateway Pundit is offended (via memeorandum). ...Compare the tea party protesters to the left-wing Weathermen terrorists, of course. I think he's taking too narrow a view of things. After all, the Times agrees with the aims if not the methods of the Weathermen. We should see this as implicit endorsement of the Tea Party movement by the paper of record! I think that the wind is blowing the other way! UPDATE: Heh! So does Ann Althouse! But...

You can't be syria-us

Posted: 04 Apr 2010 05:24 AM PDT

Barry Rubin mines the Pesach Haggadah to illustrate how Syria has been working against American interests in the Middle East: Back to Ford and Syria. Yet even if Syria is not building apartments in east Jerusalem, it might still be a threat to U.S. interests and regional stability. (Note: The previous sentence was sarcastic.) If Syria was not sponsoring the Iraqi insurgents to overthrow the government in Baghdad so as to replace a regime linked with the United States with one servile to itself, it should have been sufficient to show how instability in the region serves Syrian interests. If...

At the (maryland) zoo (in baltimore)

Posted: 03 Apr 2010 11:05 PM PDT

Friday, for the first time in a while, we went to the zoo. When the older children were younger we used to go frequently. But now that they're older, we never seem to have taken their younger siblings. Given that it was Good Friday and Passover and that the weather was very nice, the lines to get in were quite long. We saw lots of interesting things ... "First they tell me that I'll get to meet Bill Murray and go for a drive. The next thing I know this net comes crashing down on top of me and I...
