    By Ilana Angel

    This is my least favorite episode of every season.  I get annoyed by the constant recapping and pissed off that in a two hour show, there is only about 30 minutes of original footage, with a bunch of clips.  Then to make it even more painful, we are shown a Bachelor Whore Reunion in...

  • The Bachelor – Shocking!

    Most Jews live in three states, two of which, New York and California, are already in the bank for Sen. Barack Obama.

    It's the third one, Florida, that has the presidential campaigns in a frenzy. There are roughly 650,000 Jews in Florida, out of 18 million residents. Concentrated in...
  • Holocaust Deja Vu

    By Karen Alexander

    There was a time when Dora Apsan Sorell could have really used the $3,043 she received from the German government last summer. The check was meant to compensate Sorell for her slave labor during the Holocaust.

    But the 83-year-old Auschwitz survivor and retired doctor who lives in...
