(Our Apocalyptic Future) The Last Rosh Ha’Shana (Power Out at Hall of Languages)


If the future looks like this, will this be the last Rosh Ha’Shanah ever, the last Rosh Ha’Shana on planet Earth? The other day after two days of intense unseasonable heat, the AC in the Hall of Languages at Syracuse University went out. The lights began to flicker in all the offices and up and down the hall. And then the entire electric system collapsed. The building was evacuated just before the alien life forms came in search of prey.  In the burning heat, I found among scattered garbage a discarded bottle of bottled water on the lawn in the quad.

    How dare you, @nydems?! Smearing @CynthiaNixon (whose kids are being raised Jewish, BTW) as soft on anti-Semitism & lying about her position on Israel in order to fearmonger and shill for votes is a shameful dead-end for our party. #BeyondThePale #Jews4Cynthia
