The Inspirational

Bye-bye, Rabbi!

There are actors that you just remember in an odd way, even if they ever only played in one episode of your favorite series, and you never quite know why. So in this case I’m not sure if it was the fake Russian accent or the bearded face that was so memorable about Rabbi Koslov […]

E-Vee-L

Following up on the first season, just yesterday I finished the second one of Orange is the new Black and I’m loving it!

Rainbow Stars & Stripes

While I have my reservations about some constitutional freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Bill of Rights and I also take a dim view on the over-complicated, overboarding legal system over there, amazingly on a simplistic level it can be advantageous sometimes as recent Supreme Court ruling about any laws that prohibit same sex marriage are discriminatory […]
