    "I remember sitting at my grandfather’s feet when I was eight or nine years old, while he sat in an old chair and read the New York Times. He tried to explain the creation of Israel, and the situation in the Middle East. And even though he was a rabbi and a holocaust survivor, he explained the viewpoints of everyone involved in the conflict. Then told me to decide for myself."


  3. Would you believe me if I told you

    I have a single, male roommate who only takes baths?

    He does not shower, he only bathes. This is not a joke.

    Mayor de Blasio is tall and the New York Times did a whole article about that fact and this is one of the photos they used to illustrate the story.


    (Photo of the 6’ 5-7/8” Mayor de Blasio with appointees Rose Pierre-Louis and Dr. Mary Bassett during a City Hall presser by Todd Heisler / NYT)

    Literally everything about this article is gold.

    "In a city defined by its verticality, Mr. de Blasio’s Bunyanesque build has proved to be a political bonanza, allowing him to tower over smaller rivals and command a crowded room just by entering it."

    “I love the mayor, and I want to be hugged by the mayor,” said Jimmy van Bramer, a 5-foot-7 city councilman from Queens. “But he’s so tall that sometimes I’m not sure where to go in for the hug.”
