can't we all just get along??
"Officials fear babies contracted herpes during circumcisions" reports this morning. But how, you may ask... "Under Jewish law, a mohel -- someone who performs circumcisions -- draws blood from the circumcision wound. Most mohels do it by hand, but Fischer [the mohel in question] uses a rare practice where he uses his mouth". Um........ yeah, I'm just gonna leave that one alone. There is the topic, go ahead and discuss.

Meanwhile, Egypt has invited Israeli and Palestinian leaders for a get-together (cleverly called a "summit") scheduled for next week. And while it's all well and good that Israel has been withdrawing from Gaza and parts of the West Bank, and the Palestinians have been dispatching lots of police in their place... it would be *really* nice if the Palestinian terrorists in Gaza would stop raining down rockets on the heads of Israelis in the town of Sderot during this "cease-fire". Wouldn't it? Wouldn't that be swell of them? And how about you stop blaming Israel for the killing of children when it's Palestinians firing guns in the air in celebration that did the killing? Maybe those kids can iron out those little snags at their pow wow next week.

By the way... has anyone figured out whatever happened with the Iraqi elections?? There was a big hullabaloo surrounding it and then all of a sudden I hear nothing about it anymore. Are they still counting, or what? This is supposed to be a big historic moment in time and yet no one is saying a peep. Very odd.
