Interesting Posts and Articles #56

  1. According to Reuters,
    Nearly two-thirds of Egyptian men admit to having sexually harassed women in the most populous Arab country, and a majority say women themselves are to blame for their maltreatment, a survey showed on Thursday.


    Egyptian women and female visitors frequently complain of persistent sexual harassment on Egyptian streets, despite the socially conservative nature of this traditional Muslim society.
    I am not so sure that the word "despite" is appropriate here.

  2. McCain commercial on Obama's flip flops.

  3. A judge rules on disclosing identities of anonymous commenters. See here.

  4. PaleoJudaica reports on two ancient Tanach fragments from Qumran, perhaps Samaritan in nature.

  5. A synagogue next to a store selling T-shirts, bathing suits, and racy undergarments. In the New York Times.

  6. First it was Gwen Stefani with her version of "If I Was [sic] a Rich Girl," from Fiddler On the Roof's "If I Were A Rich Man." Now, Maaco adopts and adapts "Matchmaker, Matchmaker Make Me A Match" to promote their ability to exactly match any color you bring in, when they paint your car. I don't see it on YouTube yet, so here is a link to download and view it directly from Maaco.
