    My phone rings.  I answer.

    - Hello Ma’am.  My name is Blah Blah (I’m not good with names, can’t remember what the hell he said) from Avis Heating and Air conditioning.  I’d like to talk to you about your heating system.  Would you be alright with that?

    - Sure, I would be alright...

  • Chivalry is Dead!

    June 16, 2011 | 10:02 am

    What has become of chivalry?  Does it even exist anymore?  Everywhere I go I’m seeing women carrying big packages, pushing bulky strollers, and lugging around overweight toddlers while their men are cruising by without a care in the world!  The thing is that it doesn’t even seem like...

  • Everyone is Suddenly Irish on March 17th!

    By Julia Bendis

    March 18, 2011 | 11:33 am

    Why does everyone become Irish on St. Patrick’s day?  Even the Jews.  When has it become a good thing for Jews to start drinking?  Have you ever seen Jewish people drink?  No, that’s because most of us can’t hold down our liquor, and its not pretty.

    I am definitely the “drinker” in...

  • NPR’s Ronald Schiller is Hot!

    By Tamara Shayne Kagel

    March 17, 2011 | 6:19 pm

    My beloved NPR is in trouble as the House has voted to cut funding to NPR and CPB.  Ron Schiller’s part in this is now well-known – he was NPR’s chief fundraiser and was caught on tape recently by conservative activist James O’Keefe.  Not only did he have to resign, not only...

  • Dating Creeds

    Believe it or not, I've never felt quite as valuable, attractive and desirable as the times I've gotten dumped. Well, sort of.

    According to some once-doting men, I'm terrific. I'm also beautiful, talented, smart, sassy, funny, dynamic, cute and sweet. To make matters worse, I'd make...

    A funny thing happened on the way to becoming a regular Jewish Journal singles columnist.

    Curse you, JDate.

    I was just getting my mojo working on writing these -- although I'm better known in these pages for my "Greenberg's View" editorial cartoons and for the occasional cover...

    The term "boyfriend" is like the knee joint on someone who is morbidly obese. It is being asked to do way more than it was designed

    to do. It is buckling under the pressure. Where it once could do the job, it is now carrying too much weight.

    Example: My grandma had a companion...

    For the last several years I have had a relationship with a man in prison, and I have seen how his soul has become anguished and diminished by sitting in that cell.

    I met William after he was released from prison the first time, and I helped him get back on his feet. Now I write...

    Faster than a benching rabbi. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall bachelors in a single bound. Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird, it's a plane, it's SuperFlirt.

    That's right, I'm spending three days in San Diego at Comic-Con, the world's largest comic book convention....

    August 12, 2004 | 8:00 pm

    A bar mitzvah is a time of becoming an adult. While my son was ready to proclaim, "Today I am a man," he also had to go through life with his voice changing and the wearing of braces for a perfect smile.

    My first experience with this momentous occasion was after our son celebrated...

    February 19, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    She was beautiful. She was sweet, smart and reflective. She was a devoted mother of a little girl, clearly able to love and to carry on a bright, thoughtful conversation. We connected, and, in first moments made drunk by hope, we discovered a shared passion for the poet, Rumi, and...

    It has been said that a man is not complete until he is married. Then, he is finished.

    Well, I got married.

    When last we visited these pages, I was on my way to the altar. My long-suffering girlfriend -- lets call her Alison, although I can't see why we should, when her name is...

    October 10, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    One of the most interesting aspects of "Elie Wiesel: First Person Singular," a one-hour autobiographical television documentary, lies in revealing the many aspects of a man, revered mainly as the most authentic voice of the Holocaust.

    Wiesel's first love was music and, in one of the...

    August 16, 2001 | 8:00 pm

    Joanne, my relationship advisor, insists that the source of my problem is that I don't know what I want. "If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there," she said. I brought Jo in after reading that Lizzie Grubman and Gary Condit have hired "crisis managers" to...

  • What is Your Name?

    By Rabbi Ed Feinstein

    January 25, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    God created the animals and brought them, one by one, before man to see what he would name them. Man examined the essence of each creature and assigned its name. So teaches Genesis.

    The midrash goes farther: When all the animals had been named, God asked man, "What is your name?"...

  • In Praise of the Righteous Enemy

    By Rabbi Harold M. Schulweis

    April 8, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Once again, the anniversary of the Holocaust is upon us (April 13), and, once again, the commemoration taunts me. "Go preach the goodness of God." "Go praise the crown of God's creation made but little lower than the angels." "Speak to the world of faith and hope in the wake of the...

    January 7, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    History never precisely repeats itself. I was cleaning up after dinner the other evening when I heard my daughter, Samantha, now nearly 17, on the phone; she was talking with a guy named Vinnie.

    "Vinnie?" I said, as she hung up. "I think we should be focusing on Jewish guys now, don't...
