I find it hard to believe that Frank Bruni would have a friend who doesn't know the difference between your and you're.

I live in a suburb of Baltimore (Towson, Maryland) and there has been a visible increase in the homeless population in the two years since I moved here from Baltimore. I wonder whether Baltimore is "solving" its homeless problem by exporting it across the county line.

@35 that story is exactly what I thought of when I read this.

@11 my understanding is that this is the traditional Jewish position -- God gave us brains and thumbs so we could use them for good, not stick them up our asses and sit around while children die.

@8, I was wondering if she knows where she's going to, and if she likes the things that life is showing her. Also, of course, whether she gets what she's hoping for, when she looks behind her and there's no open door.

This happened to me once, in San Francisco, when I was 18. It was after midnight and I was walking home from the BART station. I was wearing baggy pants and a hugely oversized wool sweater. Guy pulled over and called to me from his car. There were some other folks on the street who were clearly sex workers, so I don't know why he picked me (baggy clothes, walking briskly) over them (tight miniskirts, hanging out on the street).

@2 and 10: I was taught that you put the candles in the menorah from right to left, but when you light them, you light the newest one first -- meaning you light from left to right.

65 percent of voters, not 65 percent of major Republican campaign donors. There's your answer.

I'll probably be sorry I put my $0.02 in, but:

I agree that Israel needs to get out of the occupied territories ASAP, and Bibi Netanyahu is a menace to all that is good. But it is also true that Hamas doesn't just want Israel out of the occupied territories. Hamas wants to destroy Israel entirely. They are very upfront about this. That makes it hard to negotiate with them.

I love the phrase "Jeff Koonsian poop." That really does sum up Times Square.
