Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Maybe we were wrong

Posted on February 20, 2018 at 9:07am 36 Comments

There is absolutely no question that the country and the world would be better off right now if Hillary Clinton had been elected, but would the country be better off five or ten years from now? Was Susan Sarandon right when she said that Trump would galvanize the country such that we’d see more change and so we were better off with him than with Hillary?

Because of two people. The first is a Parkland student by the name of Emma Gonzales who has delivered an eleven minute speech that is nothing short of magnificent. The speech has been posted by Ron and Foolish Monkey. You can go to either of their blogs to see it:…

Guest Link concerning antisemitism and the Florida school shootings

Posted on February 18, 2018 at 6:29am 5 Comments

I knew pretty soon after the shooting that five of the dead were Jewish, including four kids who attended the Reform Jewish movement’s Camp Coleman. My North Carolina assistant rabbi worked at that camp some summers because it was the Reform movement’s regional camp. I haven’t spoken to him since, but there’s a strong possibility he knew these kids.

This morning an article was forwarded to me stating that that is unlikely to have been coincidental. It turns out that Nikolas Cruz, the…

The biggest problem with Donald Trump as President is that he has no concept of service.
