I am a Ph.D. student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. I study the History of Biblical Interpretation, which includes Jewish and Christian interpretations of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. My interests are religion, politics, TV, movies, and reading.
I'm still reading Arianna Huffington's Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream.
What impressed me in my latest reading was that Arianna was not chained
to a particular ideology. Although she is believed to be on the Left,
she said some things that would resonate with a number of conservatives:
that the federal government botched up Katrina, and that the teachers'
unions inhibit educational progress. But she also criticized President
Barack Obama from a liberal perspective, contending that only a minority
of the stimulus money goes to infrastructure, which can create jobs and
is badly needed.
