Election 2014: Your vote counts on whether Iran will go nuclear

It’s become obvious in the US-Iran negotiations that the US administration will not stop Iran  from going nuclear. Only Congress can. And you will elect Congress.

Likewise, heath care.

And economic recovery.

Ben Bradlee

Ben Bradlee, executive editor of The Washington Post, 1968-1991, put his newspaper on the line to defend the freedom of the press. In 1971, over President Nixon’s objections, the Post published the scathing Pentagon Papers after winning permission from the Supreme Court. In 1972, Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward unraveled Watergate, which led to Nixon’s resignation.

In Cairo last Sunday donor countries pledged $5.4 billion to rebuild the Gaza Strip. They’re sick of this. They should be. Qatar forks over $1 billion. The US, another $212 million.

Looking forward to JAAMM

“Jewish Authors, Artists, Movies and Music” — JAAMM — is the cultural celebration put on by the Mizel Arts and Culture Center at the Loup JCC. We’re looking forward to it. In 2007, the first year of the reincarnation of the Leah Cohen Festival of Books and Authors, 11 authors made presentations at eight events. This year, it’s 35 events with 16 authors, not to mention the concerts, the lectures and more. But it’s not the quantity. It’s the quality.
