EZ Reads 3/5/11

Hat tip: Diana for a couple of these...
  • A very cool story about a holdout building by Macy's. Did you know that the building covered by the huge Macy's sign isn't owned by or a part of Macy's, but rents them billboard space?
  • A story about a fence between charedi and chiloni kids in a kindergarten in Jerusalem. Sad, sick.
  • On a semi-related note, Thinking Israel writes about a new TV show in Israel, about charedim turned chiloni, called Chozrim B'She'alah.
  • R' Slifkin on satire - how it's effective, and how it can be detrimental.
  • Unshelved has a funny/sad/true comic strip on a little girl and her books.
  • The WSJ discusses how banks are now bigger and more "can't fail" than ever. Glad we learned that lesson.

  1. The series looks like it will be interesting. Sort of an opposite of "srugim". However I think you mis-read, as the show is called "Simanei Sheela" which they said is a play on the words "chozeri bi'sheela". Welcome back to the blog-sphere.
