A long post about Jews

By Norm, and not reading it will be a miss. Only re the football players: was it really worth the effort, trying to teach them something? In the linked article the Holocaust survivor is quoted:

No, says Schlomo Venezia, he doesn't think much of soccer.

Ah, well, it is of course a matter of taste. I do think a lot of soccer once every four years. I would gladly qualify Pele, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and others as brilliant people. In their own field, to be precise.

But, with all due respect to their genius - it is hardly of the mental nature. And, compared to most of their fans, they are mental giants.
