Our good blogging friend, Karen J, needs our help. You've all seen her wonderful, funny comments all over the blogosphere, and some of you have received her help when you needed it. Personally, were it not for Karen J's emotional support at the beginning of my blogging career, you would not be reading this post now. Please, if you can pony up even a few dollars, that would be appreciated. You can donate on GoFundMe (link is in the post), or to PayPal (kmjohannessen@yahoo.com).

PS:  Read what she says on the GoFundMe site.  It could just as easily be any of us in the current economy. (Comments are disabled here.  Leave any comments on Karen's post on her website.)

Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah is not for the squeamish. Nor the two-state solution.

It’s not really about kids, gifts, fried potatoes or candles. It’s straight-up militarism, oh yeah, a victory celebration in a multimillenial conflict: “a reminder that… 35 more words
