The Elderly Jews of South Florida ... and 62 Years Ago Tonight

An Open Letter to Governor Bush

Dear Governor Bush, It's been awhile since we've talked. I believe your last words to me were, "Go find real work!" You kidder, you! That very night, it was you who found real work for yourself by executing your 117th human being in Texas. How DO you do it?! Actually, ... continue reading
