 The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
  — Albert Einstein


[Today's issue begins after this sidebar. But before going there, PLEASE read this letter. ]

I financially support the Jewish World Review.

Not because I agree with every commentary, but, because it's written in a civil way and draws upon facts more than emotion.

I don't want a "read" that conforms to everything I think because then it's another group of lemmings listening and following each other without thought or insight.

I, also, don't want to be beat over the head by someone who writes as if I'm too stupid to understand and must be intimidated into their views.

The JWR is managed to insure I receive accurate reporting, with integrity, over vast topics. I don't want to lose JWR --- I hope others show their appreciation by financially supporting this worthwhile newspaper.

I, too, feel it's important to pay for what I use.

I pay for my local newspaper.

I pay for my cell phone and it's available news.

I pay for my television news programing --- and ...

If we don't support integrity in the media, who will?
