Some of you may know me from my original blog What I Really Think, located over at SlowTrav.com. The thing is though, I realized during this last election cycle, that blog wasn't always what I really think.

I'm going to use Categories to organize my thinks, so if you're looking for thinks on books, movies, beer, recipes, check out my reviews. Thinks on politics, well look there. You get the idea.

I hate to recommend Unorthodox, I really do. Why? Because I fear it reflects poorly on Judaism and that people who read this book will judge all Jews or assume all Jews are the same as the Satmar Hasidic sect … Continue reading
