1) The world is a seething cauldron – and for once I’m not talking about global warming. A) The Middle East is boiling over with horrific violence in Gaza, Syria, and Iraq . B) Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe with a vengeance. Within the past month, eight or nine French Synagogues targeted by vandals and there have been anti-Jewish riots. In Germany, haters are calling to “gas the Jews”. And, in Greece and France, political parties with explicitly anti-Semitic platforms are growing in popularity.
2) The New York Times says that Republicans have a 60% chance of gaining control of the Senate.
3) It’s not the heat it’s the humidity. Actually, it’s the heat and the humidity and since it’s a relatively comfortable 82 here in Kensington, MD, the 68% humidity is tolerable.
I’ll address these topics and many more this week on the Morning Show, Monday-Friday 6-9am Pacific.
