Print Email

•The Washington Post gathers coverage on yesterday’s horrific shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Museum. A guard, Stephen T. Johns, was killed, an unidentified victim was wounded, and the suspect, 88 year-old James W. von Brunn, was also shot and is in critical condition. [WP]
•Meanwhile, the man who allegedly shot and killed a Wesleyan University student and had designs on the campus’s Jewish community has pled not guilty. [JTA]
•Reform rabbis issued a statement supporting President Obama’s insistence on a settlement freeze in Israel. [JTA]
•Rev. Jeremiah Wright tells the Virginia Daily Press that he forgives Obama for his “bad choices” but that “them Jews aren’t going to let him talk to me.” Presumably he’s talking about Rahm Emanuel and Barney Frank, who personally screen all the president’s calls. [Daily Press]
•Tuvya Stern, a jailed financial con artist, was allowed to hold a swanky bar mitzvah for his son in the prison’s gym. But as the hora wound down, reality set in, and several employees, including an imam and a rabbi, were disciplined for permitting the bash. [NY Post]
