The Jewcer:

Round and Round, Shes Goes, Our Miss Amanda Jones: Jewcy editors? Dozing on the t-crossing, i-dotting job? Or do our beta testers confuse editorial content with blog and Wiki content (where grammar, spelling, etc. are more allowably up and down the wicket?) Raz: "Yes, yes, this comment is riddled with spelling mistakes. But such is the lingual latitude — or is it laxitude? – I’m afforded on these Internet-specific publishing formats (latitude of this sort may even be these formats’ real innovation, helping to obliterate stylistic uniformity and other antiquated debris from an older media day, but that's another conversation). Had I made the same mistakes in an "article," and been alerted to it, I'd embarrassingly attend to the matter urgently sans the annoying faux-bonhomie on display here." [The Daily Shvitz]

Karen Armstrong Doesn't Get It: We give out awards here like we were golfing Presbetyrians or something: "For declaring that the U.S. should respond to declarations of total war and threats of further post 9/11 mass murder with the promise to “extirpate greed…from our own hearts,” Karen Armstrong gets Jewcy’s first (tentatively named) Naomi Klein Award for Insensate Liberalism."

Macaca is My Meshpucha: You can call George Allen Jewish on his mother's side, just stay away from the French ancestry. That would be an aspersion. [WaPo]

Wither New York Review? Barbara Epstein's death has left a void in a legendary smart sheet. [New York]

Sorry, We Stopped for Coffee: Herzl's children come home. It's like giving Sally Hemmings' heirs some final resting real estate next to Jefferson. [J-Post]

ATA Boy: James Watson, half of the double helix itself, is being honored by… Deborah Norville. Bryant Gumble must not have been available. [Page Six]
