We Live In Wondrous Times

I remember when in Christian America, Jews were advised to hide their Jewishness if they wanted to succeed in business, academia and politics. That explains Jews with surnames like: Summers, Holbrooke, Arrow, Baltimore, etc.

Now, we seem to have come full circle.

Al Franken, the liberal radio show host, comedian and author, in announcing his candidacy for Senator from Minnesota, said: "I'll be the only New York Jew running who actually grew up in Minnesota."

Franken is potentially a strong enough candidate to scare incumbent Republican Senator Coleman, who incidentally is a New York Jew who moved to Minnesota as an adult.

Which, BTW is another first: two Jews running against each other for a Senate seat, a Republican and a Democrat.
