blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin Ben & Jerry's motto "Love, peace, and ice-cream" is so passe in our age of outrage, whether real or imagined (I say "imagined" because the tragedies that inflamed the BLM movement -- the deaths of Eric Garner, Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, have nothing whatsoever to do with ...Read More...

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin The New York Times' columnist Charles Blow has delivered himself of a litany of lamentations on the decline of the mainstream media: "As the Press Weakens, So Does Democracy."  He paints the nostalgic picture of the pre-internet journalistic climate of the early 90es at the start ...Read More...

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin The passing of Donald Rumsfeld, President George W. Bush's Defense secretary, reignited for a moment the analysis of the Iraq war, and discussions of whether it was, or wasn't justified, of whether it was fought aright, of whether its goals were realistic, of whether it achieved ...Read More...

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin As an ex-Soviet, I always admire those who follow their own conscience, come what may. Needless to say, doing this in the Soviet Union was very risky -- and yet there were people who did not hesitate to do so. Of course, we all heard of Sakharov. There were others, not as well-known ...Read More...

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin Chinese doctor who tried to warn world of pandemic Two major disasters that shook the world, a nuclear one at Chernobyl, and a medical one known as Covid are, on the surface, starkly different.

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin What struck me when I read about a graduation address given by an Islamist board member of the Fairfax County School Board Abrar Omeish at the Justice High School in Virginia was, above all, its monumental hypocrisy.

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin Empathy and sensitivity are, needless to say, highly commendable; yet there can be too much of a good thing. "Rutgers University chancellor, provost apologize after speaking out against increase in anti-Semitism" offers a fascinating instance of sensitivity overload. In a nutshell, ...Read More...

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin The brouhaha over a student athlete's USA Today's op-ed, edited to remove the word "male" as too offensive to a "transgender" runner who beat the author of the op-ed at every turn, triggered in me a reflection on how real-life technology outstrips the wildest imagination.

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin There are two sides to every story, we are told. This is especially true of stories told in the courts of law.

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin To me, any essay in defense of free speech cannot be anything but good. Just as a sculpture made of gold is a thing of value simply by virtue of preciousness of its material irrespective of its aesthetics and artistry, the subject -- freedom of speech -- confers instant value ...Read More...

blog preview image by Lev Tsitrin The New York Times is hardly a humorous publication, yet, in the midst of mayhem and destruction that yet gain engulfed Israel and Gaza, the paper offered a rare moment of levity. Consider this summary of what's going on: "Israel launched dozens of airstrikes on the Gaza strip ...Read More...
