) New Column from
Brian Blum: Reverse
Brian talks about his first visit
to Israel (after never before
having been out of the conti-
nental United States!). That
was then. Now after residing
there and returning back to
America, he describes a new
`culture shock' in his original
paintball, Oprah, and botox
are just a few examples
touched on. Read the full
article at www.jewish.com
and understand how it's
much easier to "zone out
through a commercial not in
[our] native tongue".
