    He should have stayed with his band. I especially liked “Livin’ in the USA,” which expresses ideas contrary to his immigration policy.

    The thing that ate the chedarim that were best at teaching math was a giant godzilla-like fire-breathing dragon. It didn’t actually happen – it is based on a movie with a cult following, called “The Thing That Ate Chedarim in Jerusalem.” The movie is on a lot of lists of the worst movies of 1954. One of the supporting actors was Bernard Schwartz, who later changed his name to Tony Curtis. How bad was the movie? Jerry Lewis turned down a chance to play the lead because he thought it was stupid.

    According to a Lubavitcher rabbi I know, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, before he became 7th Rebbe, wore a gray fedora and wanted to continue to do so after he became Rebbe, but other senior rabbis convinced him to switch to a black fedora.

    As for exact size of fedora, see photos from 40 years ago – hats were much smaller. And, of course, Moses’ fedora ….

    I like apushyyid’s comment about a bus.

    If you want a kosher pig, it might be easier to genetically modify a goat to have a short curly tail, shorter legs and a shorter snout. Or you could buy those faux bacon chips and sprinkle them on veal.

    Reply to akuperma: The Democrats of the pre-Civil War 19th Century were the party of slavery and slave holders. Yes, some of them wanted to annex Mexico, but their plan was to have Mexico admitted as a slave state (or states), so that they could expand their plantations. What that has to do with the current issue of border control is a mystery to me – and probably you as well.

    The Lubavitcher Rebbe teaches that a Jew is someone with a Jewish soul that Hashem breathes into him/her every day. (This view is not unique to the Lubavitcher Rebbe.) A non-observant Jew, even an anti-semitic Jew, is nevertheless a Jew. A Jewish woman married to a goy gives birth to Jews. Some of the attitudes of antagonism toward non-observant on display here are not promoting Yiddishkeit among the non-observant and are in fact destructive, not to mention breaches of many mitzvos. The Lubavitchers have a lot to teach us about strengthening Yiddishkeit and the practice of Torah Judaism.

    To jakob: Has intermarriage increased since the commencement of Facebook? I don’t know, but I know intermarriage was growing for many, many years before Zuckerberg gave us Facebook. Before you blame Zuckerberg, or anybody else, check your facts, and cite them when you publish your accusation.

    To Joseph: Wrong as usual: If we get President Pence following a non-electoral removal of Trump, Pence then has the authority, if not the duty, to appoint a vice president, under an amendment to the constitution whose number I do not recali. That is how Gerald Ford became president when Spiro Agnew was forced to resign over allegations of bribes he took as a local official, i.e., Ford became vice-president more than a year before the Nixon resignation. So we may never get to President Ryan or President Hatch.

    The surest way to teach a child anything is by setting a good example. Most will follow their parents’ lead, a few will rebel and do the opposite. Fortunately for me, my kids rebelled and are wonderful adults.

    I have been reading about the so-called Shidduch crisis for years. All the theories about why the Shidduch crisis exists are nonsense. But more important, no one has cited any statistics to confirm that frum Jews are not getting married.

    If there is a Shidduch crisis, why is the frum population growing?

    I have a comment about the opening post which may sound insulting, but it is not intended to be. I would be curious to know where you were born, what is the first language you learned to speak, and whether you are a full-time English speaker, a full-time Yiddish speaker, or some other language entirely. Your English, as written, shows no familiarity with English grammar and usage. If English is your third, fourth or eighth language, you are doing OK. But if it is your first or second, you should work on it, or give it up.

    Again, I emphasize, I mean no insult, but this site is an English-language site, and your English is faulty.

    This is all a silly misunderstanding, because of a spelling error. The correct spelling is “Roamin’ Artichokes,” which is the name of a band that spun off from Travelling Wilburys.

    Peyos and tzisis are not expressions of “Jewish pride.” They are fulfillments of mitzvos. Period. And “Jewish pride” is an egregious, misplaced emotion. Tznius is about humility, not “Jewish pride.”

    It’s not a brand name, but there is a musical instrument called a “Jew’s harp.” It has a single metal twanger, gives the player a headache, and is much cheaper than most musical instruments. I don’t know where the name came from, but it has nothing to do with us chosen people. And I have never heard one played at a simcha.

    Now that I think of it, it’s not funny at all.

    to health: you have told me very little. There was no “Watergate commission.” She was a junior lawyer in the Justice Department that investigated Watergate. And she learned that if you deny, deny, deny, and don’t tape yourself, you have a good chance of beating the raps. As for the e-mails to Chelsea, why has she not been prosecuted by Sessions/Trump? It might be that the e-mails were not classified when she sent them. Where did you get the information about these e-mails?

    iaciscrmma: Has it occurred to you that you may be wrong in your belief that Obama and Hillary committed crimes for which they can be prosecuted? If they were prosecutable, wouldn’t Trump/Sessions have started the process?

    Let me emphasize: I am a Democrat, and I utterly dislike Hillary. If there were a legitimate case against her, I would welcome her prosecution. But of all the people chanting “Lock her up”, there is not one among them who can explain what charges can be brought against her. I sincerely would like someone to explain why Hillary needs to be prosecuted. I don’t like her, but that is not enough.

    There are many places that have much lower rates of mass shooting than the United States. The one thing they have in common is radically tighter control of guns.Make up your minds, America. Do we want a well-regulated militia, per the Second Amendment, or guns for all, per the National Rifle Association and their financial backers, who are mostly gun manufacturerers.

    I have not been to that museum, but according to published information about it, the organizers are devout Protestant X-ians who openly want to promote their interpretation of the Bible. Even among us Jews, there are lots of ways to interpret Tanakh, and X-ians interpret Tanakh as predicting their chosen savior. (Their savior is “chosen” only in one sense of the word.) The only reason for a frum Jew to visit the museum would be to find out how the X-ians come to their relgious view, and that is not a valid inquiry for a frum Jew.

    So this gentile young woman who works as a maid for a Jewish family goes home for X-mas, and her family asks her about working for Jews. She says it’s fine but she does not understand their holidays. On Sukkos, they smoke in the house but eat in a hut in the back yard. On Shabbos, they eat in the dining room but smoke in the bathroom. And on Yom Kippur, they smoke in the bathroom and eat in the bathroom.
