Ahhhhh…the wisdom of the ages.
A female CNN journalist heard about a very old Jewish man who had been going to the Western Wall to pray, twice a day, every day, for a long, long time.
She watched him pray and after about 45 minutes, when he turned to leave, using a cane and moving very slowly, she approached him for an interview.
“Pardon me, sir, I’m Rebecca Smith from CNN. What’s your name?
“Morris Feinberg,” he replied.
“Sir, how long have you been coming to the Western Wall and praying?”
“For about 60 years.”
“60 years! That’s amazing! What do you pray for?”
“I pray for peace between the Christians, Jews and the Muslims.”
“I pray for all the wars and all the hatred to stop.”
“I pray for all our children to grow up safely as responsible adults and to love their fellow man.”
“I pray that politicians tell us the truth and put the interests of the people ahead of their own interests.”
“How do you feel after doing this for 60 years?”
“Like I’m talking to a fucking wall.”

Only in FOx may one find something this funny
Here is the sub-headline:
Organizers of a big GOP fundraising dinner still don’t know whether Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will attend, with the event just hours away.
and the headline is even funnier:
After Mixed Signals, Palin May Try to Upstage Gingrich at GOP Dinner
No need to comment at length – I love circular firing squads – just read – and laugh:

Laurie Arbeiter is this tiny little dynamo of a woman, a serious peace activist who is one of the main forces behind a loose collective of (mostly) NYC based activists called The Critical Voice. The hallmark of their activism is a message delivered in stark black and white, bold statements and bold fonts.
