Sophie Masloff, the first Jewish mayor of Pittsburgh as well as the first female to lead the city, has died.

Oy Va Voy, I Lost My Mezuzah!

 When I first started this blog back in March, my father, an avid blog consumer (though not of this one — his taste runs more to the neo-con political ones), e-mailed me that, “The first rule of blogging, you should know, is POSTING SOMETHING EVERY DAY.”

Sorry, Dad, I’ve come nowhere near complying with this rule, especially in the last few weeks. Hopefully this won’t be as great a disappointment as my rejection 21 years ago from Yale or my failure to pursue a  more stable and lucrative career.
