More Chicago News and More
...And speaking of Chicago, here's some more Chicago news:
- ויקם מלך חדש על שיקאגו - Chicago's first ever Jewish mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has been inaugurated today. The Daley Melucha is over. A new Melucha is beginning. I'm not a huge fan, but I wish him the best.
- The trial for Tahawwur Rana, who is accused in helping with the Mumbai attacks, has started jury selection today. Rana's business, First World Immigration Services, is located in the heart of what is (or some may say what was) Chicago's Jewish community.
- Ladaat notes that they celebrated Naqba Day in Tel Tziyon with a Pidyon Peter Hamor. I personally would have opted for the Arifa, as that would have been more symbolic.
- Mr. Qaddaffi is basically saying, "Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, you can't get me!"
"I tell the coward crusaders -- I live in a place where you can't get to and kill me," he said. "I live in the hearts of millions."Some say that he's hiding under a children's playground, where, besides being a war-crime, is likely the source of his taunt. Of course, his protection may be linked to something else.
