Hope For Israel

Dear Backward,

I always love to turn to your Arts & Culture pages. In a world where everything is so uncertain and life can sometimes seem so cheap, it makes me proud to be a Jew.

Winter Olympic?

Dear Backward,

After my Bar Mitzvah in October I had a lot more free time and, on the MacBook Pro that Uncle Hal bought me, I started reading the internet. Last week I finished it. Could you recommend some other places that I might find interesting? Thanks.

Cell Mate

Dear Backward,

Now that the sentencing is over, and everything’s finished — baruch hashem — I gotta say, guys you did a heckuva job. I mean fair’s fair, we had a great racket going and you totally nailed us. We should definitely sit down some day over a bottle of schnapps and reminisce about the good old days in Postville. And by the way, what a fantastic job Phil O’Lologous does. That guy deserves a medal!
