You may have heard the story recently of a man whose wife and the two other women he was sleeping with, who happened to be sisters, tied him to a bed and then glued his penis to his... read on

    Holy Obama

    Love the commentary about St. Barack from The Weekly Standard’s Michael Goldfarb, who was the deputy communications director for John McCain’s presidential campaign. Goldfarb writes: “You expect it from Time and Newsweek, but this is from the official White House photo stream.”

  • Matisyahu’s magic

    Matisyahu is a frequent subject of this blog—whether it’s talking with Christians about Moshiach or being mentioned as a point of comparison for my beard. The latest occasion is a Q&A the reggae rapper did with Rabbi Naomi Levy, who happens to be married to The Jewish Journal’s Rob... read on

    I voted for Barack Obama, and I’m pleased to say that his efforts since taking office in January have validated that decision. He wasn’t just handed one or two messes to fix, but a plethora. And I’d say thus far he’s done about as well as anyone could have hoped for—except for on... read on

  • End of an unusual NBA career

    September 6, 2009 | 1:18 pm

    Lance Allred was one of the NBA’s more unusual stories. The deaf native son of a polygamist Mormon community, Allred scored a total of just three points in his 10 minutes as an NBA player. He has been a journeyman in the truest sense. But now he’s getting some attention for his... read on
