Reading: There & Here


1. The Nation has an amazing new article worth reading to anyone interested in the treatment of returning - and disabled - American soldiers: "How Specialist Town Lost His Benefits," by Joshua Kors.

2. Just in time for Passover, The Forward has a terrific new editorial, "The Choices of Freedom," that is worth reading for anyone interested in American-Israel relations (and problems like the ones I mentioned here, here, and here, among many other articles).


3. With Passover closing in, how about some pointers to Passover-related items of my own, from 2002, 2003, and 2004. If one reads the comments posted under The Forward editorial I just mentioned, a few people criticize the paper for the connection it draws between being Jewish and being American. Re-reading my own, old Passover essays, I clearly agree with The Forward: there are lots of emotional and psychological connections here, and we should celebrate, not scorn, them.
