philg -- Readers: What do you think? Public schools can continue to operate in an arbitrarily boring manner because children are required by law to show up and teachers are entitled to lifetime pay regardless of outcomes. But there is no law requiring young people to show up to a synagogue rather than stay home with Xbox and no law requiring parents to keep paying the rabbis. Judaism has survived for about 4,000 years, so it seems rash to forecast its demise, but we’re only in roughly Year 8 of the ubiquitous smartphone age.

When I was a kid, Cary Grant came over to the house to meet with my mother about some project. When she was out of the room, he looked at me and whispered ""I'm not really Cary Grant." This was a very important lesson.— Shaun Cassidy (@shaunpcassidy) July 29, 2018
