Here’s a piece on where teenagers get their news and how to raised a politically informed kid. (Now with less Jon Stewart.)
Here’s one about a horrid romance novel between a Jew and a Nazi. (Let it beÂ known that I beat every media outlet to this story exceptÂ Flavorwire, and that was only because myÂ editor wanted me to add the Summer of My German Soldier reference, which slowed me down. Not that I’m competitive.)Â Here is one aboutÂ menstruation-tastic apps for Orthodox Jewish women to track when they’re pure and impure, and thus able to have contact with their husbands.
And on SorryWatch, two literary apologies! One from a bookstore owner who gave refunds to customers who pre-ordered the “new” Harper Lee novel, Go Set a Watchman, and one from the author of the offensive Jew-Nazi romance novel.
And finally, here is a study by my grandfather, published Â in the New England Journal of Medicine in 1930, about Jewish women getting tapeworms from tasting raw gefilte fish.
