A Baltimore judge will not drop the charges against two Jewish brothers accused of beating a black teenager.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had sued Texas-based Administaff, Inc., which provides human resource teams for small- to medium-sized companies, and Conn-X, a Florida-based cable service provider, after brothers Scott and Joey Jacobson were harassed for approximately two years at the Conn-X office in Edgewood, Md.
U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy, a major figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, died late on Tuesday at age 77.
In the last year, my younger brother has been asking for and taking my dating advice on an almost daily basis. It's a fact that continues to astound me.

Yes, I watched from a few blocks away as the towers fell, but without the benefit of a zoom lens or slow motion video (thank God for that -- there was nothing that I saw I wished to see again or in greater detail).
A few months ago, I wrote a story in these pages about my experiences as a Jewish Big Brother. As Paul Harvey says, here's "The Rest of the Story."

Josh Kornbluth, 42, was depressed when Miramax shelved a film version of his Spalding Gray-like monologue, "Haiku Tunnel" several years ago. He resigned himself to life in the theater -- until his half-brother, Jacob, 28, made a radical suggestion: The brothers should make the movie themselves.
Two brothers, both self-proclaimed anti-Semites and white supremacists, pleaded guilty Sept. 7 to firebombing three synagogues in the Sacramento area two years ago.
"Blood Simple" put the brothers on the map (Ethan quit his job as a statistical typist at Macy's), and the Coens went on to write, produce and direct a series of off-center, ironic, unsettling fables peopled with vividly drawn cartoon characters.
