What is the media leaving out? Adrian Paul, of the Highlander, was filming there when it happened. He sent word to his fan club: "There are tens of thousands peacefully demonstrating also all over the country but that isn't really shown because it isn't news. "
What I think? Hey dudes! Go for it!

October is the greatest month there is! It's my birthday month! I was born three days shy of being a goblin and I celebrate all 31 days! It's when Fall arrives! And best of all! Even better than my birthday is - Halloween!!!! All month long Disney Channel will air Halloween shows!!!! I'll read every R. L. Stine book I can get my hands on of the Nightmare Room! I'll loose sleep from staying up reading and not care! I love October!!!!!
I don't care what anyone says about Halloween, I'm with Stine, it's the coolest holiday! It's full of everything funny and frightening! Cool candy! Crazy costumes! Pumpkins!!!!! Who can't enjoy the sight of a carved pumpkin???!!!! I love it!!!! It's a chance to shrink back and be a kid again! Not that I ever quit.
Anyway, while I was enjoying my tastee caramel covered apple, the sky suddenly became dark. The wind began to howl. I looked up as the black clouds moved in. They formed the scariest shapes I had ever seen in my life. One looked like bill clinton! One like hilary! The horror of it all!!!! How dare those freaking liberals invade my beloved day!!!! Then the worst of all appeared! Making Halloween seem like sissy stuff! It was her! She-who-must-not-be-named! The disgrace to all that's good! The insult to her son's memory! It was.....oh dare I say it......Moonbat Sheehan flying through the sky on a bat!
The wicked witch of the west, flying on her trusty steed across the Ohio River. Quick! Someone shoot her! Where's a dang redneck when you need one??????? Curse you lazy rednecks!!!
I imagine tonight I'll have nightmares from the experience. Not even Stine's Nightmare Room has dreamed of anything so horrid in the skies. Alas, I shall eat another caramel covered apple and console my virgin eyes by watching countless hours of The Fairly Odd Parent's "Scary Oddparents!" to prepare me for October and another fun Halloween.

So to Garten, Bindi will take her father's position when she comes of age. She'll do an outstanding job, as will little Bob. She might even have her own shows on Animal Planet! But, unlike you, she'll never be psycho, because she's surrounded by over 500 very protective loving people who have helped raise her since she was born.
So while you're bragging that you're still alive because you're afraid to touch animals, consider that.

YO: Meaningless. Any minute now, the headlines will read the opposite.

Lucky you, unlike arabs, we have class. Well, except for that guy behind me. Mommie ticked him off, now she must pay."

Rabbi Wudowsky was the coolest rabbi I've ever met. He was a great teacher and a firm believer in there being such a thing as a stupid question. Any student who sat under him can verify he wasn't shy about letting you know if you'd asked one! What is a stupid question? Not thinking about what you want to ask before you ask it. His point? Use your brain. Pay attention, because 90% of the questions asked were already answered in the lecture and you would have noticed if you were paying attention.
Elisabeth Elliot once said, "If you make a person think they're thinking - they'll love you. If you make a person think - they'll hate you." If ever a statement fit a man, it was him. R' Wudowsky had little patience with those who preferred to let others do their thinking for them. A lot of girls couldn't stand him for it. The rest of us loved him for it. It's one of the things that made him a great teacher.
GETTING ON WUDOWSKY'S GOOD SIDE
It wasn't always easy to get on his good side, and for me it happened completely by accident or perhaps it's because I'm a freak. You see, CH operates by whenever I get there, I'm there. I, on the other hand, believe you're late for class if you arrive 10 minutes early. So, I usually arrived at school 30 minutes before it opened and would sit on the steps and review my lessons. R' Wudowsky also believed in arriving early and would sit in his car and daven.
Before long, R' Wudowsky took notice of my habit. One day I was late. I arrived just as he was walking up the steps. He looked down the steps at me and said matter of factly, "You're late!" I grinned and from then on it became a quiet competition to see who could arrive first. If I beat him, he would look out his car window and grin. If he beat me, I got a "shame on you" headshake.
This somehow lead to him asking me if I had a shadchan. I said no. He told me he wanted to take me on and to give him a call when I was ready. His wife was shocked. He had quit being a shadchan and was turning down everyone who asked. Now I was shocked, and felt deeply humbled and honoured.
Shortly thereafter, his heart began giving him trouble again. Then came the worst day of 5760. It was vav Tishrei and I sat waiting and waiting on the steps for R' Wudowsky to show. It was now past time for the school to open. Some twenty minutes later someone arrived with the news - R' Wudowsky had passed on.
Machon Chana was never the same after that. His absence showed who the strength of the school was - it was him. He left behind a wonderful legacy and the girls who never got to sit under him have been greatly cheated in their learning.
So ends my salute to the great one! Have a good shabbos everyone!
