  • Unhappy New Year!

    By Mark Miller

    January 5, 2006 | 7:00 pm

    OK, I'll be absolutely honest -- I spent this past New Year's Eve alone. Sure, I could have salvaged the situation with a round of frantic last-minute calling, but I never got around to it because I had to go and get into a fight. Fortunately, I was the only one who got hurt. You...

    In the play "2 Across," a man and a woman -- who have nothing in common but their crossword puzzles -- are on a 4:15 a.m. train leaving San Francisco International Airport for the East Bay. She takes crosswords (and life) very seriously; he treats everything like a game. By the...

    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....

    When the child is born, start saving! It's not a bad idea to start two savings accounts; one for college and one for the bar or bat mitzvah.

    Next week, I am sponsoring a group of Israelis and Palestinians to spend a few weeks in a small village in southern France with a Buddhist monk named Thich Nhat Hanh. These two disparate groups of people do not know each other, but often feel hatred toward each other. Some of them...

    One of the best things about being the editor of a Jewish paper is I get to meet a lot of Jews.

    Looking back over the past year, I see it's a fascinating perk of the job.

    "Gee, you came quite a way to this event, didn't you?"

    "Gee, you sure have a long drive home."

    Gee, You. G.U.

    In the sprawling Southland, I've learned there's more to the rules of attraction than "How You Look," "What You Do" and "What You Earn." There's "Where You Live."

    Here's what you miss when you go on an organized mission to Israel: You miss the closed-top market in Rosh Ayin, where sellers out-shout each other over megaphones, "Underwear, girls' underwear, three for 10 shekels."

    If you participate in an "emergency weeklong mission" -- where...

    What is it about the mitzvah of loving our fellow Jew that is so complicated?
