Sunday Humor: Op-Ed: A Letter From Somebody

I am a somebody.

You will recognize me in the street as a somebody, and we may cross each other’s path every day, or daven Shacharis, Mincha, and Maariv together in 770 every single day.

My wife and I are well-off financially. Not because we are well-educated or because we have great jobs, but because our parents are rich with “old money”. We are accustomed to getting discounts at most Crown Heights stores because our parents know the owner and because our families donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to the yeshivas and girl schools.

I am gezhe.

Lubavitch Magazines and newsletters love writing articles about my great-great-great grandfather because we call him “elter zeide” and because his childhood story includes White Russia, hiding from Russian police and learning in an underground cheder.

OGDENSBURG, NY — The new owners of a kosher cheese plant here have defaulted on a rent-purchase agreement with the city, according to City Manager Arthur J. Sciorra.

Toobro LLC and the 30 Main St. plant’s former owner, Ahava of California — both based in Brooklyn — are locked in a dispute involving a kosher facility in Lowville that has shut down the Ogdensburg plant for the second time this year and left its estimated 60 workers unpaid for two weeks.

Route 52 Worst Road for Traffic Deaths

Herald Record

Route 52 in Ulster County saw five fatal crashes in 2006-07. Overall, the roadway ranked No. 1 among deadly roads in our region from 1999-2007.

Route 52 rises out of Pine Bush, crosses into Ulster County, climbs through Walker Valley and Warwarsing, and, before descending sharply into Ellenville, offers expansive views of Highland Lakes State Park and the Catskill foothills.

It’s a beautiful drive, and more and more often, a deadly one.

By Grant Schulte for the Des Moines Register

DES MOINES, IA — Lawyers for Sholom Rubashkin suggested Friday that a past or current employee at the Postville slaughterhouse Rubashkin once ran planted evidence to incriminate him.

Rubashkin also denied allegations that he helped one of his former mid-level managers flee the country to avoid arrest.
