Goldblog + J Street = Crazy Fun!


Just a bit of home news: I will be in performance this Wednesday night in New York with Jeremy Ben-Ami, the founder and grand rabbi of J Street, the left-leaning pro-Israel group. Jeremy will be singing hits from his new album, "I Got Tears In My Ears From Lying On My Bed Crying On My Pillow Over You," and I will provide value-added entertainment by juggling liberalism and Zionism while riding a flaming unicycle.

No, no, I kid. Jeremy's new album is called, "You've Got Sawdust on the Floor of Your Heart."

We'll be at the Society for Ethical Culture (which is a Chabad House for atheists, I think), located at 2 West 64th Street at Central Park West. The program -- not a debate, a program! -- is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. I think you have to pay money to go, but it will be worth it! Here's a link that explains even more.
