A Letter to the Atlanta JCC’s Executive Director

If you haven’t heard, the Atlanta JCC’s Book Festival is coming. Part fundraiser, part book fest, it’s one of their biggest annual events. Unfortunately, the J has landed themselves in hot water with the cancellation of one author’s session. The author in question, Peter Beinart, wrote a book called The Crisis of Zionism. Beinart contends, and […]

To Enforce or Not to Enforce?

To Enforce or Not to Enforce?

Driving downtown to work on 85 in the morning, I often wonder whether police traffic enforcement during rush hour is worth the trouble. Enforcing speed limits during rush hour does definitely slow drivers down…down to a grinding halt. Atlantan’s seem to have an obsession with the flashing blue light because they literally slow to a […]
