I had an intellectually stimulating conversation over matzah, wine, and brisket with several post-grads and Jewish expats. There is nothing better than beautiful, smart people arguing. Makes me have hope in the future.
Some were in San Francisco for the Olympic torch debacle; as I had heard from other contacts, the situation was extremely explosive. We all agreed that the Olympics has never been primarily about athletes, but about politics. Religion + politics, and it turned us all on...
And yes, another year is upon me, thanks for the bday wishes from my lovely friends.
