Heartwarming stories from the effects of Hurricane Isaac in Louisiana, as dogs and cats - and even cows - are rescued by caring teams of animal lovers. "God is good to all, and His mercies extend to all His creations," wrote King David in the Psalms. Our Torah in last week's portion of Ki Teitze records several laws relating to the humane treatment of animals. The hurricane rescuers seem to have that "Derech Eretz for animals" DNA as they give the abandoned pets a second chance at life. Also, Elan pontificates about the abysmal lack of civility at the National Conventions held in America prior to the elections in November. Shouldn't it be possible to prop up one candidate without insulting and ripping apart the other? How are children supposed to be behave when they run for middle school student council? What role models do they have for a clean, civil campaign? 
Be in touch with Elan at and keep that derech eretz thing going!
