The 60's Again?
Happy New Year. As we of the Hebrew persuasion say, L'Shana Tova. It is 5767 in the Jewish Calendar. I enter the year with a lot less drama than last year. Good. My shul has seen an exodous of those who cannot get past the 1960's, but there's still a few left. Last night one of 'em couldn't help himself from implying that the falling cost of gas is a hideous plot.

How would politicians impact the cost of gas? Who is doing this? Why? Is spending more on gas a mitzvah? If so, what is the price level at which it becomes a mitzvah? Worst of all, the blowhard let fly while addressing the congregation during Erev Rosh Hashanah. How typical of the liberal. Striking when decent people won't further wreck the occasion by answering back.

If said blowhard is so interested in the price of gas, let him defend oil tyrants from Iran and Venezuela in front of the congregation. But let it be in a forum where one can reply without wrecking a holy day.

My daughter was with me from 8/19 - 9/4. Her mother was on a mysterious trip out of town, destination known only the the old bag. So my kid started High School while living with me. She asked if she could move in with me, and I said OK. Then later she decided to face the music and the drama and move back with her mom.

The mom had riotous drama through the High School orientation and first week. Meanwhile, my daughter is racing off to a great start, doing her homework, joining a lot of activities, and has more freinds than she ever met at that fucking private school. Homecoming plans are under way. What could be better?
