Crumbling Economies?

Dry Bones cartoon: economic crisis, Economy, Disaster, finance, Banks, Inflation, Politics,
Watching the politicians of the western democracies flop around as their economies crumble is somehow comforting. They are having as difficult a time staying on budget and living within their means as I do.

The news from Sandy Hook was and is horrifying.

In case you didn't catch the story that bored the EU's a mention by Al Jazeera (Dec 7 2012) :

More than 100,000 Palestinians gathered in the Gaza Strip on Saturday to hear him speak for the first time in the Palestinian enclave.

I live in the Middle East and on my TV I watch as the Egyptian people decide what kind of country and society that they want to live in. What they decide and how successful they are at achieving it, will have an important impact on us all.

I wish them and the country of Egypt well.

Speaking of messages, after the success of the Dry Bones Kickstarter Project I am now deep at work creating the Dry Bones Haggadah which, I hope, will carry our message to generations of Jews to come.
