Hypersensitive, or just looking to make a buck?

Um, Mr. Delgado? Get over it.
She was foolish, she made a mistake, and your girlfriend didn't burn to death.

talk shows, suing, we can see where this will go.

You got the help you needed, 911 dispatched  the help immediately, the dispatcher made an error which besides hurting your feelings did no damage whatsoever.

I wonder about people like this.  Do they ever watch videos in which people are horribly embarrassed? Do they ever look at scenes at crimes? Do they care then, when someone's privacy is exposed, errors show them to be fools, etc?

Like the Michael Jackson Family Grab Fund.  Now that the cash cow is dead, whom can we milk or blame or squeeze money out of???

Religious Disclaimers, or Look, I Really Am Very Very Frum!!

"He's a very very ehrlicha boy, maybe you've heard of his great uncle, the Rosh Yeshiva of_____? Anyway, he found a good job, is responsible about parnoso, totally not bummy or anything...."

I think we all talk too much.

Is Yiddish So Holy?

Some schools insist on it, claiming it is the language of the alta heim, the gedolim, the real Torah world.  It is pure, heilig, separates us from the dangerous secular world.

You think Weberman spoke to his victims in English? Or Yiddish?

It's not about the language. It's about how you act
