Cool weather and hot topics are the rule in the Twilight Lounge this week, as Goldbrener challenges the efficacy of “wanting to see (a rude Uber driver) realize he’d done wrong rather than wanting him to fear for his life” and Rosen asks how hard it is to find a white supremacist in San Francisco. Meanwhile, the Hebrew Hammer has returned, Omri Casspi is crashing Jewish weddings, there’s a kibbutz reality show on the BBC and Nigel Farage is reminding us that the ZOG still controls the U.S.
Moving onto what appears to be a light, controversy-resistent topic, Rosen asks:
Is razing an old synagogue good for the Jews?
…and is proven wrong. Much discord is wrung out of this seemingly-benign question, with Rosen coming down hard on the side of historic and community preservation and Goldbrener chalking that all up as rote sentimentality. In the end, however, the boys somehow arrive at the same conclusion.
