Shame on me for not noting the 73rd anniversary of my parents’ wedding yesterday. They were married on April 12, 1946 in a “Displaced Persons” camp in Austria less than a year after the end of World War II. I probably shouldn’t strike this tone on the Jewish Sabbath, but my message to Holocaust deniers and anti-Semites remains the same: Zolst Leegen En Drerd. Choke on these facts:
Jews comprise just two-tenths of one percent of the world population. They have been awarded:
37% of Nobel Prizes in Economics
26% of Nobel Prizes in Physics
25% of Nobel Prizes in Medicine
19% of Nobel Prizes in Chemistry
25% of Fields Medals, the ultimate honor in Mathematics
Shame on me for not noting the end of the first work week as a retired person for my best friend, Dr. Zal. May you have many, many weeks in retirement!
The Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach, Florida is currently in session and, of course, Motor Trend is televising much of it. Yesterday, the day was deemed to be “Family Friday” for the audience who were encouraged to send photos of family cars with the hashtag #FamilyFriday. Silly me sent this tweet (shame on me?):
Only two in my family, does this count? #FamilyFriday
