Elsewhere, I thought these were interesting:
  • I don't generally discuss Israeli politics too closely anymore, but these clips RafiG posted (in Hebrew) of Moshe Feiglin were really interesting. It's both nice and sad at the same time to see that Israeli politics can actually discuss substance and show more agreement between the sides than American politics often does.
  • I really enjoyed this d'var Torah by Steg on Toldos. A worthwhile message.
  • My mom sent over a fascinating piece on how radiologists may do a better job at their job when there's a face to the scans they're seeing.
