Excellent posts, that is, for my first-coffee-of-the-morning blogreading. A few good analysis items, as well.
Her brother-in-law Menachem, residing in Bet Shemesh chimes in with an interesting local POV on "the situation."
And I sure hope she gets that job. (I am so there, and am looking for a full-time radio/writing gig as well). Drop a comment or email for my CV.
