The israelis must have some sort of collective psychotic malady that compels them to treat the Palestinians WORST than the Nazi group treated them. Hamas has generated a ton of laughter in the past 24 hours. They truly abhor losing money, so now they are sniveling to use to lift the david ben gurian flight ban. Ha, ha. HRM

Fair enough on the heroes statement..The Iranian funded HAMAS is a clear threat to Israel, as wellRead More as every other islamic faction in the region, given their history and so little room for error in a small nation, a fair minded person wouldn't blame the Israelis for being cautious and at this point fed up. I'm no expert on middle east politics, but I know which side most adheres to principles of tolerance and peace. By the way, have you seen the black beauty Miss Israel 2013? How does that fit in with your theory ?

Carl, a couple thoughts about the high-stakes testing you discuss in your commentary: (1) manyRead More school and district administrators do place way too much importance of the tests and use way too much school time preparing students for the tests. It was not uncommon for students to be subjected to TWO pre-practice tests during the school year (nearly as long as the actual test) in preparation for the end-of-year STAR test here in California. Any way you look at it, that's a waste of valuable educational time. Why did that occur? Because school administrators felt pressure from higher-ups to raise tests scores, even at already high preforming schools. That is unlikely to change with the new Common Core standards/testing. . . . . . . . . . (2) On the other hand, way too many teachers complain that they "can't be creative, can't teach the good stuff, can't focus on writing, can't give students time for PE, can't give students art, and on and on and on because of the pressure to "teach to the test." That's nonsense. Quality teachers easily figure out how to cover the standards (California State Standards or Common Core) without teaching to the test. Quality teachers find ways to integrate the standards with whatever they're teaching. Quality teachers know how to teach writing, reading critical thinking, social studies, science art, etc. and still cover the standards (which leads to kids doing well on the TEST).

Weddings aren't cheap. What can a to-be-married couple do with that $20K? They can use it for a downRead More payment on a house. Kick start their retirement savings.

I would be more understanding of such a huge outlay of money if people actually stayed married, butRead More alas, people don't anymore. It really is just a four hour party. Look at all the time and resources squandered.

I agree with both of you.
