The long shlepp south: I trek down to Tel Aviv yesterday to screen another group of potential students. On the way back, a group of young musicians are jamming quietly near me on the train. Guitar, dumbek, bouzouki, vocals. No white-bread top forty stuff: they are singing Dror Yikra and a few Greek classics.

Be glad you live here: Or anywhere other than a place like Saudi Arabia, where this is a crime. It continues to blow my mind that the world seems to find this acceptable. It is one of the most bizarre things that the US still gives military aid to the Saudis, despite crap like this and the fact that the Saudis blatantly fund international terrorism.
