How Pomegranate Reflects Our Permanence

David Brooks of the NY Times begins his article today about . . . Pomegranate, supermarket to the Semites
What continues is an homage to the lifestyle of us frummies, (as well as some percentages regarding our singles) with only one small flub, that women as well as men have an obligation to wed (which they don't). 

He concludes: 
All of us navigate certain tensions, between community and mobility, autonomy and moral order. Mainstream Americans have gravitated toward one set of solutions. The families stuffing their groceries into their Honda Odyssey minivans in the Pomegranate parking lot represent a challenging counterculture. Mostly, I notice how incredibly self-confident they are. Once dismissed as relics, they now feel that they are the future.  
That's right. We ain't going nowhere.

Love that last line of the article. Kind of brilliant.

Yeah, the comments were interesting...and mostly depressing. I think the majority were written by Jews. Just a feeling.

Hi PL:

Just wanted to let you know how much I love visiting your page regularly.

You always give me something to think about.

Anyway, I have nominated you for The Liebster Award to do with what you see fit.

All my best,
