Re: “Don't Go Into the Woods!

One more thing Sauganash has stories of spirit activity since it's been built, I could have told them to be very careful a long time ago!

Re: “Don't Go Into the Woods!

We used to drink in the lost cemetery n build a fire as teenagers it is located off Labaugh Park off Foster N of Chicago River E of train tracks, 2 to 3 foot lower than Montrose cemetary which was separated by a 3 to 4 foot stone wall on the E side towards Pulaski Rd.Sunken graves, early 1880 to early 1900. One hot summer night we saw flashlights and jumped the wall into Montrose Cemetary halfway through we felt ice cold air, could see our breath, we ran like hell, someone or something was angry we disturbed them!

Re: “Everybody's a Reporter

I have had that Police Press Pass for years. I get to pass that yellow tape. To get that pass I need to be fingerprinted as does all other media people. Certain things I do not do bodies are one. Everything I shoot before I leave I down load it to a police laptop. That way in case I have shot something that they have not.

Re: “The Twitter rabbi

Caresenoughtotelltheturthon:

Both congresswomen were initially refused entry to Israel because they were critical of the government's policies. But because Rashida Tlaib, born in Detroit to Palestinian immigrants, wanted to visit her ailing grandmother, it looked barbarous to the rest of the world to bar her. The Tel Aviv government relented, saying she could come under strict conditions. She would be like a relative let into a jail, after careful searching and scrutiny, to visit an imprisoned family member. Rashida refused this humiliation and her grandmother emphatically agreed with her.

Re: “The Twitter rabbi

Chicago Mathematician:

1) It isn't "pretty antisemitic" to criticize the policies of a particular government. If I criticize the Trump administration, am I anti-American?

2) From the first paragraphs, 'The Twitter rabbi' is about politics and applying morals to them. At the end, it brings in Israeli politics. It isn't simply an article about Jewish people.

3) Why dismiss as "trolling" opinions you disagree with? It demonstrates intellectual poverty.

Re: “The Twitter rabbi

Peter Byrne - why don't you tell us something positive that you are doing in the world, or that we can do, instead of trolling the comments section of the Chicago Reader?

By the way, your assumption that every article about Jews should discuss Israeli politics at the top is pretty antisemitic. I suggest you reflect on that. Do you want allies in your work, or do you just want to make cute points online?

Re: “The Twitter rabbi

John Greenfield: The first thing to clarify is whether you are expressing your personal views or those of 'The Reader'. Not long ago your name appeared on its masthead.

With regard to Ms Levitt's article, and with all due respect to her, it reads like a release from a public relations' agent. Ms Levitt doesn't ask a single probing question. We learn that rabbi Ruttenberg is going on a do-gooder's West Bank visit that isn't at all explained. Ruttenberg wasn't asked her position on life and death issues that are getting people killed daily. Is she for or against the illegal settlements? The forced isolation of Gaza? The ethnic cleansing of Jerusalem? Will she dare to speak out?

Since, Mr Greenfield, you make matters personal and tell me to either go to Israel to do good works or else to be silent, I have to remind you that the Israeli government does not let visitors into the country who do not subscribe to its policies. It wants only witnesses whose approval it can count on. That's why Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar were refused entry.

Re: “Cornelia Avenue Baptist Church

This church is very family oriented and the pastor preachers from scripture, true scripture, not feel good/prosperity preaching. Everyone is friendly.

Re: “The Twitter rabbi

Please. A bit of decorum. Don't descend to the "f... off" level. And you can't simply call what you disagree with "trolling" or "inaccurate". That's disrespect for words. Your obligation is discussion and clarification.

Re: “The Twitter rabbi

Peter Byrne: Ruttenberg is actually traveling to the conflict zone and plans to work promoting justice for Palestinians in the territories, which takes more courage than sending a tweet. If you're not doing much more yourself to end the occupation than leaving inaccurate and trolling remarks in comments sections, then fuck off.

Re: “Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

Offensive as heck. Dated. Completely mismatched couple: airhead white woman and intellectually brilliant black man. But to a racist world, that makes it right about equal. And touching, no less. Weve got a lot of work to do.
