"IF ONE FOLLOWS the line of
thinking that being Jewish is matrilineal,
then I'm Jewish," says Marcus
McLaughlin, marketing manager at Jax
Kar Wash, owned by Bruce Milen.
His mother's maiden name was
Green, shortened from Greenberg ...
which she learned late in life from
genealogical research ... From that point
on Marcus' mother embraced her
birthright.
The child born to him and his wife,
was named Abigail Sarah McLaughlin ...
Abigail ("her father rejoices") and Sarah
("princess") are both good Hebrew
names.
KORN KORNER ... One night, a
robber broke into a home and heard a
voice say, "Jesus is watching you!" while
he rummaged through the desk.
He replied, "Who said that?!"
Once again he heard the same thing,
"Jesus is watching you!"
The robber looked around the room
only to see a parrot. He asked the parrot
what its name was. The parrot replied,
"Cornelius."
The robber said, "What kind of a
name is that? Who names a parrot that?"
The parrot said, "The same person
who named that rottweiler behind you
Jesus!"
