It’s weird watching the tides of content interest on the Web. For almost two months, a link I posted about the origin of UCLA’s Undie Run as part of a comment on LAist.com got almost no clicks. In the past two days got more than 70.

When I write in birthday cards to my mom, I enjoy moving her to the point of tears (usually of joy). But I can’t boast the same about yehudis’ sentiment, which I think is related to this recent dialogue on Jewcy.
