Reality Sets In

More shared values with Islam
Last Friday marked the 3rd anniversary of the abduction of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit. A citizen of Israel and France, Gilad was only 18 years old when he was captured by Hamas. Over his 1,095 days in captivity he has yet to be allowed a mere single message from his family; Hamas having denied even the repeated requests of the International Committee of the Red Cross. To mark his third year away from friends and loved ones, the Consulate General of Israel in New York has created a video based on the book Gilad wrote when he was 11, "When the Shark and the Fish First Met."

Slamming Palin
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) would like to amend that little joke he made earlier this week about Sarah Palin when he said he wished it had been the Alaska governor who had gone missing instead of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford.

"Too bad, if a governor had to go missing, it couldn't have been the governor of Alaska. You know, Sarah Palin," Kerry told a group of civic and business leaders on Tuesday, according to the Boston Herald. That, of course, was before he and the rest of us learned Sanford had lost himself in Argentina with his secret mistress.
