I once again thank Elli for blogging while I sat shiva.
It was a tiring period especially since we had the yom tov interlude.Today I found out that our eldest grandaughter Carly ,who celebrated her bat mitzvah today, was born on the first day chol Hamoed Succoth which was the day my mother passed away on.
On the last full day of my shiva a former neighbor, friend and colleague Dr George Landa passed away.He was in his early 60's and was a fine and distinguished cardiologist and ben torah. He left a wonderful family.The Monsey and medical community will miss him.
Kudos to FM Lieberman for telling it like it is.Today he told the FM's of FRANCE AND SPAIN TO GET THEIR OWN EUROPEAN HOUSE IN ORDER BEFORE TRYING TO PRESSURE ISRAEL ON HER PROBLEMS.
It is not clear if Shas will support a 60 day freeze,or will not stand in the way of a constuction freeze,or will oppose it.
Today RCP ( real clear politicss) puts the Senate battle at 50 -50. Thus as Elli wrote, Wash and Conn among a few others could be no 51 for the GOP.
