NOTE TO KEITH WASSERSTROM
Ditch the yarmulke. Haven’t you embarrassed the Jews enough?
I regularly dropped by the trial and watched his lawyer try to play the Jew-Card every chance he could. The only things missing were Wasserstrom’s mohel and his Bar Mitzvah album.
Do The Chosen People a favor and choose some other people. And take Scott Rothstein and Bernie Madoff with you.
Wasserstrom appears to be wearing a yarmulke in this picture, but it is largely hidden. When he went on trial, his yarmulke was very visible.
Before his conviction for lying on a conflict of interest form, Wasserstrom (left-green tie) shared an award with Steve Geller (middle) and Ken Gottlieb (right).
FIRST A KICKBACK AND NOW A COVER-UP
Exactly what part of the Florida Constitution says that the sudden resignation of Rep. Ray Sansom means that the State House cannot begin the investigation into the former Speaker’s kickback schemes?
It must be the little known “keep it under the rug amendment.
A while back I wrote about the Roman Catholic Church objecting to an abortion for a nine-year-old rape victim carrying twins by her stepfather.
There is now a call for the resignation of the Vatican’s top bioethics official…because he thought this might be a valid exception.
GOD’S BUTTON MAN
The Bible is filled with stories of God ordering his followers to whack whole peoples including the kids.
So who is to say Kathleen Aceto is wrong when she says God told her to kill the neighbors?
The Brevard County Florida woman opened fire on a family on their porch, but she was chased away when a neighbor started shooting back.
Aceto is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, armed burglary, shooting into an occupied dwelling and the use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.
Since Godheads have their own private communications with the Supreme Being , is it right to order a mental evaluation for Aceto, while continuing to honor Abraham for what would otherwise be “Attempted Murder and “Aggravated Child Abuse.
WHAT THE HELL IS CURLING?
While they are called the Olympic “Games they are supposed to be playing “sports.
Sometimes it is hard to tell where the line is. We can be certain that speed skating and skiing are sports while billiards and flipping baseball cards are games.
So watching a bunch of out-of-shape middle-aged folks use brooms to direct a rock over ice–looking sneakily like assisted frozen shuffleboard–makes you think that Curling just might be a game.
I get the feeling that it was thought up by a bunch of drunken Canadians who were getting bored with Beer-Pong.
Thus I have come up with a shopping list of factors to determine: GAME or SPORT?
It’s probably a game if:
1. Injury risk is not much of a factor
2. You don’t have to be in shape to be a champion
3. Steroids wouldn’t help you cheat
4. Gender has nothing to do with performance
5. Copious amounts of liquor are not likely to interfere with performance and might actually help by relieving the boredom.
6. It takes copious amounts of beer to get fans to watch.
7. A team of sixty year olds could just as easily beat a team of 20 year olds.
I look forward to your additions and deletions.
