I realize Mark will mock me relentlessly for starting a sentence in this manner, but…
As a Jew, this is one of the downright weirdest stories I’ve ever read.
As I read it, I was sort of relieved to see that neither the reporter nor really anyone he interviewed had any idea where the hell this came from. It made me feel a lot less confused.
Thanks to Casey for bringing this weirdness to my attention, and pointing out a couple of the most jaw-droppingly offensive passages.
