Levity is certainly not banned at Passover, so I’d like to treat you to some


by David M. Bader (Harmony, 1999), and wish Happy Passover to all my

Jewish friends and readers.

 

 

 

Left the door open

for the prophet Elijah

         Now our cat is gone

 

 

 








 








BLT on toast –

the rabbi takes his first bite,

           then the lightning bolt.

 

 

 

 

 

Quietly murmured

at Saturday services,

           Yanks 5, Red Sox 3

 

 

 

 

 

 








“Through the Read Sea costs

extra.”   Israeli movers

              overcharge Moses

the kids suddenly

tiny check Flee before it’s too late:  Washington Post writer Mary Ellen Slayter is following up on her

column on making the decision to go to law school with a live online chat, next Friday, May 6th,

at 2 PM (East Coast time).  Her guest will be the author of Should You Really Be a Lawyer?, the

book we mentioned last week,   You can leave questions in advance and are urged to join in. 

 

tiny check  Nowhere to flee: At C&F, Mike Cernovich quotes from a disturbing 8th Circuit   commandments

opinion issued today, Doe v. Miller, >No. 04-1568 (8th Cir. Apr. 29, 2005), upholding a ban

against sexual predators living within 2,000 feet of a school.  As Mike notes, Miami Beach

is considering a similar law, which would in practice preclude sex offenders from living anywhere

in the town.  Our society needs to think through the many issues involved in dealing with sex felons

who have competed their sentences.  It’s not just rabid civil libertarians who think we may be going

too far with restrictions — besides the issues of fairness, rights and effectiveness, the measures may

be creating unnecessary hysteria and lulling parents and kids into false feelings of security, with

only grandstanding politicians gaining.   In my agrea there is growing agitation to do more, and a

Schenectay, NY, legislator wants to require GPS monitoring ankle-bracelets on all sex offenders, and

wants to require all landlords to check the offender registry before renting a unit.  [Related:  ABC News 

piece "City Mulls Buffer Zones to Ward Off Sex Offenders," and AP article, "Fla. Bill Approves Sex-

Offender Monitoring," April 9, 2005)]
