    New look and logo for The God Blog, with a little branding for my new home, The Jewish Journal. I wouldn’t say I’ve matured too much, however, with this mug shot, a favorite of my wife, gracing the page.

    This is getting really old. Mitt Romney is a legitimate candidate for the Republican presidential ticket. A conservative governor of one of the most liberal states in the union, maybe he could rebuild some of those political bridges burnt and blown up during the past six years. But... read on

  • ‘The Terrorists Next Door?’

    It’s a scary time to be an American Muslim. Islamophobia is more pervasive now than it was in the wake of 9/11. Those sentiments could have only been heightened Tuesday when the government announced it was charging six foreign-born “radical Islamists” with plotting to attack Jersey’s... read on
