Happy New Year!











The Jew Test: Now Required for Employment at Dreamworks?

I'm just going to come out and say this: I'm Jewish. I know it's unfortunate and I know I probably just lost about half of my readership, but oh well. Anyway, tonight is the first night of Rosh Hashana, which I wouldn't have even known about if it weren't for an e-mail my roommate sent to me.

Let me tell you about this e-mail. My roommate works at a place that happens to deal with Dreamworks, the media company owned by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen (guess what? all Jewish). Anyway, someone at Dreamworks had sent an e-mail which ended up being passed on to my roommate. Here are the abbreviated contents with names changed to protect the innocent...

I’m sorry, b/c I’m covering for Sophie’s usual asst., could you tell me, who’s Rosh Hashanah and why would he/she affect Shlomo’s meeting with KN and MC? Thanks! -Lola.

Now that is a good question: who is this Rosh Hashanah and who does he work for? I think if upper management caught wind of Lola's e-mail she might need to look for a new employer, probably a gentile one.
