Bright Idea

Netanyahu should announce that he's willing to admit refugees descended from the 1947-49 Palestinian exodus to settle in the West Bank--indeed, he's willing to admit them permanently. Of course, in order to create these permanent settlements, he would need to work with the PA, and to get their blessing.


The South is different. Let Jewdar make this clear--we are are not a fan of the smarmy liberal tendency to paint all Southerners as illiterate rednecks. Fun fact--while Obama won among the most educated voters, he also won among the least educated. But when we say the South is different, we mean more than just voting patterns and education levels. We mean that for a long, long time--even before the Civil War--there was a Southern identity distinct from the the rest of the country.

The Last Resort

Once upon a time, summertime was when a young Jew's fancy would turn to thoughts of summer excursions in the Catskills. And for many of them, of course, "the Catskills" meant "Kutsher's." Well, those days of yore are no more, but that doesn't mean a young Jew can't still dream.

Loosier State

The Indiana law is simply another example of our once great nation's downward spiral into crybabiness. I know that Indiana is part of the Midwest, but when Jewdar was a lad in Wisconsin, we understood that refusing to do your job to the best of your ability was seen as a negative thing.
