• Jewish and other charities are responding to the Pakistan flood, but more slowly than they did the Haitian earthquake; some suspect politics have played a role. [Jewish Journal]

• Goldberg v. Lazio on Meet The Press. [Atlantic]

• “It’s a community center. They’re going to have a gym. They’re going to have point guards. Muslim point guards.”—Al Franken [News Desk]

• Speaking of which, shortly after Amar’e, the NBA’s biggest big man is soon to visit Israel. Will we soon welcome Dwight Howard to the Tribe? Would we even want to? [JTA]

It’s bad enough that Hapoel Tel Aviv’s Itay Schechter was yellow-carded for pulling a yarmulke out of his sock and putting it on after scoring against Austria’s FC Red Bull Salzburg.
