Adar 13, 5769, 3/9/2009
It's been a while - sometimes a bug bites and you can't stop writing - other times it bites and you feel paralyzed. At least, that's the way it is with me. I wrote a piece about Netanayu - the JPost didn't want it - posted it a few days ago - waiting to see if A7 posts it under 'opinion' - if not, I'll post it here towards the end of the week.
In any case, Purim festivities have started here in Hebron - yesterday the kids all costumed up and that will continue tonite, after Ta'anit Ester is over and we read the Megillah. If you want to see photos, go to:
